A Guide to Specifying Performance Textiles in Healthcare
As we are faced with the effects of an ageing population, it is important that our care facilities are designed to enhance patient wellbeing and behaviour. Fabric design, texture, performance credentials and how fabrics are used within an interior affect the overall ambience and environment. Use of colour, pattern, technical and acoustic properties and added value treatments are essential to effective design in care interiors. The seminar gives a comprehensive insight into the critical factors to consider when specifying performance fabrics within healthcare, including designing for dementia. This CPD will help you to understand the following topics:
- The impact an ageing population is having on the care industry including designing for dementia
- Health issues of the elderly that need to be considered when designing for care interiors
- The impact a physical environment has on the health, wellbeing and behaviours of patients
