Information days: Designing technical products in such a way as older people need them

Start-up AGE-Ing. is looking for test persons who would like to take part in product development

February 23, 2018 9:00 AM   until February 24, 2018 4:00 PM  

Technical products should be made in such a way that they can be used intuitively, be barrier free and correspondingly designed. However, they are mostly not geared towards the special needs of older people. The start-up project AGE-Ing. from the University of Stuttgart would like to rectify this situation. It involves people from 55 years of age in the development and design of products.

Up to now over 100 test persons have supported AGE-Ing., other interested persons from the age of 55 are wanted. For this purpose on Friday, 23rd February 2018 and Saturday 24th February 2018 there will be information days taking place at the University of Stuttgart on the Vaihingen Campus. AGE-Ing. will be introducing possibilities for older people there to support the work of the project as test persons or designers.

Interested people from the age of 55 are requested to phone or email Benedikt Janny, email: benedikt.janny@age-ing.design, telephone: 0711/685-68219.
