Guidelines and Strategies for Designing Transgenerational Products is the authoritative resource manual for designing transgenerational products and environments.


Intended for those without specialized knowledge of the aging process...

This 113-page manual informs readers about the realities of human aging and provides an indispensible set of design guidelines and strategies for designing products and environments that  accommodate—and appeal to—users of all ages and abilities.

Decisions made on the basis of erroneous assumptions or myths about any group will reduce a product or evironmental design's utility and effectiveness for all—young or old, able or disabled.

Guidelines and Strategies for Designing Transgenerational Products will help assure that the products and environments that you design, produce or acquire will reflect a realistic understanding of the aging process.

  • Section One discusses how designers can respond to an aging population and presents an overview of aging from a transgenerational perspective.

  • Section Two develops the relationship between product design and the aging process by linking specific knowledge and information about both areas.

  • Section Three offers a transgenerational response by answering the "so what?" questions. That is, given the facts about the aging process, how can products and environments be designed or improved to accommodate people of all ages and abilities — without penalty to any group?

This unique design manual will help ensure that the products and environments you design or buy will, indeed, be transgenerational.
