About this Unit
Designing optimal interactive environments for people requires an overview of human and contextual factors that impact on tasks and activities in the use of everyday products and services as well as specialised equipment. Students will complete a design challenge to improve product usability with healthy and rewarding outcomes for users through an evidence-based approach. Design challenges are completed with the input of specialist health and science resources with students applying knowledge in the areas of human anatomy, physics and the biomechanics of motion providing insights for new product innovation.
