動作に着目した住宅空間設計のガイドラインに関する研究 車いす使用者の操作能力を考慮した住宅整備指針の構築
Study period:2001 - 2003
Research overview:
Most of current guidelines of space development with consideration on wheelchair users are based on dimension of wheelchairs and space necessary for assistance. Some guidelines consider characteristics of wheelchair users and construct corresponding guidelines according to individual handicaps. Even with persons of same kind of handicap, however, individual moving capability and operating skill of wheelchair produces different spatial response. This study considers desired form of spatial development by measuring and assessing capability of motion and wheelchair operation of individual handicapped persons instead of the kind of handicap.
