Download News Item (pdf 4.00 MiB)


What is the ‘Washbasins in Public Accessible Bathrooms’ study about?

We are seeking to understand the needs and preferences of wheelchair users in relation to the use of public washbasins. The goal is to provide evidence-based guidelines for the design and installation of these basins that is based on the feedback of the end users.


Who can take part?

Anyone who is over the age of 18, can use a washbasin independently and uses a wheelchair for community access is welcome to take part. Don’t use a wheelchair all the time or haven’t been using one for long? We still want to hear from you! Know someone who might be interested? Pass our details on, we’d love to hear from them.


What is required?

Your opinions and insights. Participants will take part in a face-to-face interview about their experiences and complete simulated tasks with 3D motion capture. The session takes approximately 3 hours, but breaks can be taken as needed and food is provided.



The Livability Lab at UNSW Sydney. An accessible parking space can be booked for the session and an accessible bathroom is located in close proximity to the lab.
