Download News Item (pdf 4.00 MiB)

Published

Calling on wheelchair users! Do you use a wheelchair in your daily life or for community access (i.e. in public environments but not necessarily at home)? Do you make use of public accessible bathrooms? Then we want to hear from you!

Researchers at UNSW Sydney (The University of New South Wales) and GWA Caroma are seeking volunteer research participants to learn about the space requirements of public accessible washbasins for wheelchair users. The aim is to collect the information required to improve the usability of bathroom designs for wheelchair users and inform future changes to the Australian Standards and construction codes.

If interested, please contact the researchers either by email (LivableBathrooms@unsw.edu.au) or phone (02 9385 0711) for more information.
