  • Product Description

A large number of factors play a role in ergonomics; these include body posture, work place designing and environmental factors (noise, temperature, humidity illumination, and climate). The habitat rooms were suitable whereas the storage facilities/separate baths were not constructed ergonomically. The dampness of wall affected the health of the elderly people causing respiratory problems. The material used for door was not resistant against moisture. This again adversely affected the health of elderly. Absences of safety architectural symbols like main fuse board, switch outlets, fan & regulator etc. were the major shortcoming that caused inconvenience & hazards safety. The floorings of the habitat rooms were not specific, smooth and of grease proof material (skid resistance tiles) particularly in bath with water closets to avoid any accidental slips/falls which were the major drawback. These risks can be minimized or reduced the severity of others through simple modification in designing the old age homes and carefully selecting the infrastructural facilities.
