Smart Bathroom

The bathroom is an integral part of people’s everyday life, enabling individuals to carry out basic activities of daily living and helping to maintain their well-being. However, as people grow older, the design of the bathroom environment can require increasing demands due to normal age-related changes to an individual’s physical, sensory and/or cognitive abilities, resulting in a range of difficulties with these basic tasks. This project will explore the task performance of older adults (60+) who can ambulate with or without a caregiver, but who have physical impairment (upper or lower body).
