Improving Quality of Life for Adults of All Ages
The Human Factors and Aging Laboratory focuses on understanding the fundamentals of human behavior in the context of technology interactions. Our research engages older adults in projects related to healthcare technologies; design for aging; technology acceptance; aging-in-place; technology training; human-robot interaction; and aging with perceptual, motor, or cognitive disabilities.
