Aging, mind and brain

A human factors engineering perspective

Abstract

This chapter addresses the key role of human factors engineering for addressing growing challenges and opportunities associated with population aging. Human factors engineering can play a key role in the development of strategies and tools to address normative age-related and disease-related changes in cognitive abilities and function experience by older adults. The chapter provides an overview of human factors and discusses a user-centered design approach. A user-centered design approach incorporates user requirements, user goals, user characteristics, and user tasks into the design/evaluation process. The chapter includes examples in the realms of task and equipment/product design, training and instructional design. Human factors can also play a role in the design of protocols for the assessment of a person's skills, abilities or task performance or for the evaluation of a system or training protocol.
