Abstract

Design methodology for the elderly is researched on the basis of a literature review. The following main themes are discussed: design methodology, the elderly, needs and culture. The intersection of two domains: design and aging/elderly indicate the impact of aging and elderly on design. The influence reflects the necessity for the holistic approach of the needs based on the proper cognitive functioning of elderly at their capacity level. The intersection of the two domains: design and culture indicate the impact of culture on design. The influence of cultural aspects on design demands a design vision that leads to visionary products. The intersection of the three domains: design methodology, culture and aging/elderly indicate the impact of culture and aging/elderly on the design methodology. The intersection has complex inner relationships and is introduced as the Tao of Designing, where paths, directions are indicated.
