  • Semi-automatic retractable handrail utilizing opening/closing movement of
           sliding door supporting elderly people to walk independently.

    • Authors: Kinjirou Saitou, Nao-Aki Noda, Yoshikazu Sano, Yasushi Takase, Shuqiong Li, Hiroyuki Tanaka, Yoshitaka Kubo
      Pages: 1 - 19
      Abstract: The purpose of this research is to install a handrail on the sliding doors used in hospitals and nursing facilities to support seniors and people with disabilities to walk by themselves. The semi-automatic lifting equipment is utilized for the retractable handrail to make sure people in bad health are able to open the door using a weak force. To design the handrail for this purpose, the theoretical formula for opening force is derived. Then the simulation is performed with varying geometry conditions confirming the results are in good agreement with the experiment results. The opening force is designed to be less than the target value previously reported. The sliding door developed in this study is useful for elderly people walking by themselves safely.

  • People with intellectual disabilities and their health care utilization in
           Korea.

    • Authors: Kyungshin Kim
      Pages: 20 - 47
      Abstract: Empirical studies on health care utilization by people with disabilities are rare in South Korea. There exist even fewer studies that examine health care utilization by people with intellectual disabilities and that compare the health care utilization pattern by this population vs by population with other types of disabilities. This study investigates the characteristics of people with intellectual disabilities (vs those with non-intellectual disabilities) and evaluates the relationship between the presence/absence of intellectual disabilities and health care utilization. The present study analyzed the 2005 and 2016 Korea Welfare Panel Study data. The final sample included observations from these two years that span over the ten-year period. Health care utilization was operationalized by whether the people with disabilities (intellectual and non-intellectual) participated in health screening, how often they received outpatient physician visits, and how long they received inpatients service. To examine the effect of the types of disabilities on health care utilization, random-effects logistic regression and negative binomial regression models were employed. The present study found that people with intellectual disability showed a much lower attendance rate than both people with non-intellectual disabilities and people without disabilities. The percentage of those who received outpatient service experience was higher for people with non-intellectual disabilities than for people with intellectual disabilities. The mean annual number of outpatient visits was greater for people with non-intellectual disabilities than for people with intellectual disabilities. People with intellectual disabilities also showed a lower rate of inpatient experience compared to those with non-intellectual disabilities. Based on these results, it is suggested that policy-makers should promote fuller access to the use of health care services for people with intellectual disability. In addition, more efforts should be made for people with intellectual disabilities to participate in medical research so that they can express their demands on health-related issues.

  • Birdwatching and birding by ear.

    • Authors: Ana Margarida Rolim, Vanessa Costa Pinto, Manuela Pires Rosa
      Pages: 48 - 85
      Abstract: : Accessible tourism goes beyond the physical dimension, associating services with sensory experiences, considering the specificities of people with disabilities. Birdwatching and birding by ear can be a good example of an activity that links visiting new places with outdoor activities. It can bring positive outcomes to the visitors through the benefits of being outside and connecting with nature, consequently, with ecosystem services; moreover, it can be an inclusive and accessible activity. Urban areas are increasing all over the world. In a sustainable context, green and blue infrastructures have received increasing attention in urban strategies. They create new habitats, contributing to urban biodiversity and, at the same time, providing many ecosystem services that guaranty well-being for the communities. The main goal of this study was to inventory and characterize the bird community in the urban area of Lagos, a touristic city in the South of Portugal. Birdwatching and birding by ear in the city could have the potential for an inclusive and accessible touristic activity. Three different sites along the city were sampled and a total of 35 species were sighted and identified. Some of these species could be identified through specific websites which describe the bird and give the respective bird singing sound. Most species identified were migratory, which increases the potential to sight different species through the year. The three sites' location has high potential to be integrated into accessible walking routes or tours, which increases the relevance of this study.

  • Analysis of the educational spaces and universal design.

    • Authors: İlayda Soyupak
      Pages: 86 - 114
      Abstract: Education should be an equal distance with everyone, the educational environment as a second lecturer is responsible for supporting equality and should present inclusive characteristics. This study is carried out to evaluate Duzce University Art, Design and Architecture Faculty within the context of universal design principles. This study evaluates the existing condition of the campus facilities regarding universal design and searches for possible design interventions to improve inclusivity. At first, within this context, the relation between the physical environment and campus users is examined via video recording and observation studies. Analysis of the findings of the observation and video recordings revealed the interaction pattern between the physical environment and users. With the help of analysis, places requiring universal design solutions are identified and classified according to their priority. Within the classified problem areas, problem areas suitable for increasing inclusivity by small scale design interventions are determined, and initial design ideas are constituted for them. The capability of design interventions in increasing the inclusivity of educational environments is exposed, and the importance of a holistic approach in the educational system for inclusivity is emphasized. As a result, it is revealed that it is possible to improve equality and the participation level of diverse user groups in educational life only by actualizing small-scaled universal design interventions. While showcasing the potency of the universal design applications in an educational setting, this study underlines the importance of conjoint actions of every actor in the educational system.

  • Built environment accessibility in the eastern province of the Kingdom of
           Saudi Arabia as seen by persons with disabilities.

    • Authors: Helen Peterson
      Pages: 115 - 147
      Abstract: According to the World Health Organization, the rights of persons with disabilities (PwD) worldwide are limited by social and physical barriers that prohibit their full participation in society. Built environment barriers can limit accessibility to transportation, goods and services, healthcare, employment, and overall independent movement. The Eastern Province (EP) of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) has about six per cent of its population designated as having some type of physical disability. Previously KSA-instituted rules and standards have not improved accessibility for PwD in the local built environment. This research attempted to determine the extent of accessibility in EP by surveying 183 persons with disabilities to ascertain what elements of the built environment are problematic for them and what they believe requires improvement. According to this survey, PwD felt elements that are essential to accessibility, such as ramps, elevators, restrooms, signage, and egress, are difficult to navigate. Commonly used public locations such as medical centres, restaurants, shopping, mosques, and banks each had obstructive elements that prevented PwD from fully using the spaces. Saudi Arabia is currently in the process of phasing in technical and social programs regarding the built environment that should improve accessibility for PwD, but current conditions are inadequate.

  • Insights from an inaugural eight-month interprofessional collaborative
           co-design educational experience between occupational therapy and
           industrial design.

    • Authors: Rebecca Brown, Kimberly Mollo, Madalyn Peterson, Mikael Avery, Eric Schneider, Tod Corlett
      Pages: 148 - 177
      Abstract: The design of the built environment greatly impacts how all types of individuals and populations actively participate in their daily lives. Lack of access in the built environment for disabled populations remains a daily reality, negatively impacting engagement and life satisfaction, leading to isolation, loneliness, and depression. A university in the Northeastern United States sought to expand current constructs of the end-user and environment within a universal design (UD) perspective. On an eight-month inaugural interprofessional collaborative co-design experience, third-year occupational therapy doctoral (OTD) students were embedded in a first-year masters of industrial design (MSID) curriculum, which ran the course of the academic calendar (two consecutive semesters: Fall and Spring). Primary aims wanted to determine, via an interrupted time-series quantitative design, if embedding OTD students within the industrial design curriculum influenced the MSID students’ prior assumptions, understanding of disability and enhanced their willingness to create more inclusive final products. Quantitative findings indicated that it was difficult to capture the meaningful change that occurred in the doctoral capstone program experience with the existing psychometric tools available. Anecdotal mixed-method findings indicated that informal interprofessional learning experiences in the classroom, such as lectures and learning activities created and facilitated by the OTD students and delivered in real-time, broadened and enhanced the MSID students’ knowledge surrounding disability and accessibility in a more nuanced way than the chosen quantitative survey tools were constructed to capture. A detailed literature review and description of the program have been provided, along with suggestions to capture meaningful outcomes for longer-term interdisciplinary collaborations.
