Ergonomics and Aging in the Built Environment - Designing for an aging population.
This CPD is Episode 3 of 5. Designing domestic interiors for an aging population. Join Amanda Hughes from Blum UK as she explores the challenges this sector face and how can we improve designs and support the "aging at home" model.

We look at the current data sets, how we age and the impact this has on the quality of our living spaces. Aging is an opportunity for creating inspired and innovative solutions to common problems.

By the end of this CPD delegates should:

1. Have an overview of global aging studies, the current data picture, and future predictions.
2. Understand the physiological changes that happen as we age.
3. Have an understanding of the challenges in this sector and the design solutions to adopt to overcome these.
