9780415286121: Designing for Older Adults

This new guide explores the subject of human factors and the older adult primarily from an engineering psychology perspective, heavily grounded in today's scientific knowledge. A compilation of the authors' knowledge, research, and experience, the book shows readers how current understanding of age-related issues of perception, cognition, and movement control can be applied. It provides guidelines for design issues ranging from lighting, computer input device selection, and Web site design, to training program development, and work task design. Designing for Older Adults draws on research-oriented work and presents this in a form that can be used by a broad audience.

Review:

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.
