This study is part of a large project on design-relevant characteristics of ageing users. A total of 750 young and elderly, male and female subjects were tested. All subjects were able to live independently. Differences between the sexes were mapped as well as changes in force with age. The relationships between five different isometric forces (pushing, pulling, twisting and left and right gripping) were investigated. The possibilities of extending information on these forces to other forces… CONTINUE READING
