"Guidelines are grouped by topic and presented in bullet format or in tables, which makes [this book] ideal as a quick-reference text. This book is well written in a clear, straightforward language. [A]ppropriate as a basic reference for practitioners and designers who want to better serve the aging population. I could also envision it being incorporated as a supplementary text in a course on aging and human factors. I highly recommend [this book] for product designers or readers wanting an introduction to age-related design issues." - Ergonomics in Design, Summer 2005 "Recommended for professionals who design systems, products or environments for adult learners. Industrial engineers, product designers and others concerned with human factors and ergonomics would find the guidelines useful. Recommended for academic libraries with curricula in engineering, gerontology and related health and psychology professions." - E-Streams, Vol. 7, No. 12, Dec. 2004Reseña del editor:
As life expectancy increases in the affluent Western World, older workers and the retired form a large and growing proportion of the world's population. Professionals working to develop systems and environments need to better accommodate the user needs of the older adult. This new guide provides a practical introduction to human factors and the older adult. It considers the subject primarily from an engineering psychology perspective, heavily grounded in today's scientific knowledge. It shows how current understanding of age-related issues of perception, cognition, and movement control can be applied in practice, and provides a reference source with guidelines and advice for design issues ranging from lighting, computer input device selection, and web design, to training program development and work task design. It draws on research orientated work and presents this in a form which can be used by the broad audience of product designers, health care practitioners, managers, and others who need answers to the problems and require sound recommendations for design.
