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.
