Computational Case-Based Redesign for People with Ability Impairment

Author: Bridge, C.
Year: 2008
Type: Book


Home modification practice for people with impairments of ability involves redesigning existing residential environments as distinct from the creation of a new dwelling. A redesigner alters existing structures, fittings and fixtures to better meet the occupants ability requirements. While research on case-based design reasoning and healthcare informatics are well documented, the reasoning and process of redesign and its integration with individual human functional abilities remains poorly understood. Developing a means of capturing redesign knowledge in the form of case documentation online provides a means for integrating and learning from individual case-based redesign episodes where assessment and interventions are naturally linked.A key aim of the research outlined in this book was to gain a better understanding of the redesign of spaces for individual human ability with the view to using computational modelling to share and expand new understandings.
