DESCRIPTION

BS 4467:1991


This standard BS 4467:1991 Guide to dimensions in designing for elderly people is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 13.180 Ergonomics
  • 91.040.01 Buildings in general

This British Standard provides guidance relevant to the design of equipment and buildings for elderly people. Guidance is given in terms of anthropometric dimensions and by giving examples of applications of this data for particular types of facility. The standard does not cover design for seriously disabled and non-ambulant elderly people.

The guidance is based upon the dimensional requirements of elderly women but the guidance will also prove suitable for the majority of elderly men.

The dimensions given include an allowance for clothing and low heeled shoes.

Due to lack of suitable data, no guidance is given on hand function and forces that elderly people might be able to exert.

NOTE The titles of the publications referred to in this standard are listed on the inside back cover.
