Abstract

The advanced countries in Europe, US, and Japan start to focus on the design problems of aging society from the point of social welfare because of the global trend towards the aging society. However, there are a variety of mobile devices on smart phones and tablets showing the flashy and high-tech effect to attract the users’ attention but it is confusing to the elderly for searching and judging important information. An industrial designer should know the elderly requirements, follow the principles of the universal design, be able to design suitable gestures for the interface operation of the mobile devices, and promote the value of products. This research applies the concept of ergonomic methods in building ergonomic decision evaluation system, modeling development and demonstrating the developed designs to help improve the gesture of interface operation on the mobile devices for the elderly people.
