Human Factors and Aging Series


About the Series

Given the worldwide aging of the population, there is a tremendous increase in system, environment, and product designs targeted to the older population. The purpose of this series is to provide focused volumes on different topics of human factors/ergonomics as they affect design for older adults. The books are translational in nature meaning that they are accessible to a broad audience of readers. The target audience includes human factors/ergonomics specialists, gerontologists, psychologists, health-related practitioners, as well as industrial designers. The unifying theme of the books is the relevance and contributions of the field of human factors to design for an aging population.
