Titel / Title: Easy functions cupboard design for elderly people
Abstrakt Abstract:

In Sweden is estimated that near 16% (1.5 million) of its population is over 65 years old. In most of the cases, the elder people would like to live by their own. This means that comfortable and safe environments are a need to match the expectations of this important sector of the society. In this thesis, we focused on designing a kitchen’s cupboard for elderly people. We want to solve some common problems such as their unsuitable height for them.
First, we designed an upper cupboard that can easily be pulled down allowing, in a better way, elder people to have access to some stored goods or tools. Secondly, we designed a lifting-lower cupboard in a way that elder people do not need to unnecessarily bend their back to reach what is stored in it.
We use Computer Aided Design (CAD) software, INVENTOR, to model our suggested cupboard, as well as its Finite Element Method module to develop stress analysis to make our design more accurate and truthful.
