Title: See me, Feel me, Touch me; talking about the older generation and packaging access
As we age there are significant changes in strength, dexterity and cognition that effect our ability to pull, twist, manipulate and understand how to access packaging. Inability to access packaging whilst at first a seemingly trivial problem can effect nutrition and health and general wellbeing.
Sheffield Hallam University is at the forefront of enabling and generating solutions for this problem that have implications for researchers in other disciplines attempting to study older people and product and service use.
