A framework to understanding factors that influence designing for older people

Abstract

There is a considerable amount of research literature that is focused on the importance of inclusive design. There is a steady increase in research that is also focused on understanding how to design for older people. However, most of the research available focuses on ageing as a variable in understanding patterns of technology usage, preferences and difficulties. What is more necessary is research that explains why the age differences occur. For this reason, it is essential to investigate mediating factors such as cognitive abilities and
experience. In this paper, we did an extensive literature review to understand various factors that explain why age differences occur and how these factors are interrelated. Based on which we propose a framework that will help other researchers and designers to provide a quick map to investigate inclusive design problems.
