    An estimated 35 million people reached age 65 or older by the year 2000 in the United States alone, and evidence suggests that older people experience declines in their ability to interact with many types of systems, from doorknobs to microwave ovens.

    This compilation of 84 top-ranked papers from past HFES Annual Meeting proceedings provides easy access to important research about the ways in which systems, tools, and environments can be improved for optimum use by older adults. The editor and her review team evaluated more than 180 papers from the years 1987 to 1996 and selected papers in six areas:

    • Perception, movement control, and biomechanics
    • Cognition
    • Technology and computers
    • Workplace
    • Health, warnings, and safety
    • Driving

    Designing for an Aging Population is a well-organized collection that represents high-quality research. Includes author and subject indexes.
