Caroma launches new bathroom solutions for older people

Published

An innovative range of evidence-based bathroom solutions has been launched to meet the needs of ageing Australians.

Bathroom manufacturer Caroma launched its Wellbeing Aged Care range last week at its flagship store in Alexandria, developed by the UNSW Faculty of Built Environment as part of its Livable Bathrooms for Older People research project.

The research, jointly funded by the Australian Research Council and manufacturing GWA Group, analysed older people’s physical dimensions and abilities to develop the best possible bathroom design solutions.

The four-year research project surveyed 4,633 people aged 60-90 and interviewed 80 people ranging in size, height, age and sex. The products were co-designed through workshops with older people.
