Or are product developers biased towards young, healthy males with technical skills and insight? When designing products to be handled at home or in a professional situation or in the public domain, designers ought to base their choices of technical properties on the capacities, habits and preferences of the user group.

Although there is a continuing increase in the grey sector of society, design-relevant data on elderly users are almost nonexistent. This book attempts to narrow this gap in gerontechnology: product design for the elderly. Product developers and innovation managers are invited to implement the checklist of guidelines, to initiate or enhance their user-centred design work.
