Review them BEFORE you make those important design decisions.


BROADEN YOUR KNOWLEDGE and increase your 'transgenerational' understanding of VISION, HEARING, TOUCH, and MOVEMENT.

The specialized information contained in these four sections will help you:

  • IDENTIFY the major effects of the aging process on vision, hearing, touch, and movement

  • DESIGN a product or environment for use by several generational groups

  • SET DESIGN PRIORITIES in relation to expected user abilities

  • EVALUATE existing products and environments to determine their degree of transgenerational accommodation

  • DEVELOP design guidelines and strategies that meet the users range of age and abilites

Meeting the needs of an aging population is an integral part of the design community's set of professional values and responsibilities.

The challenge is to design transgenerational products and environments that will be usable by the older population today—and will be embraced by the rest of us tomorrow.

Those prepared to serve the needs of a transgenerational population enhance the quality of life for all.

 

Rationalizations can no longer excuse designs of products or environments that fail to attract and accommodate any segment of the population.
