Empathic design for elders

This week in class we talked about designing clothes for the elders,

and empathic design for older individuals. With aging comes changing

lifestyles, physical capabilities, and sensory capabilities such as

vision, hearing, taste, touch, and smell. When you think of comfort

and choices for elders you have to take into consideration of comfort

for physical, psychological, and social. Also think of choices such as

appearance, independence, daily functioning, and physical comfort,

safety, convenience, and care, cold and warm environments. Challenges

and opportunities such as diabetic peripheral neurothy, stroke,

Alzheimer’s’, Parkinson’s, osteoporosis, Arthritis, and Cataracts.
