PubMed/National Library of Medicine

The School of Psychology at the Georgia Institute of Technology examined the differential benefits of instructional materials for younger and older adults learning to use a home medical device. The data provide practical information to guide the development of training programs for systems that will be used by both younger and older adults; they also demonstrate the need for age-related usability testing even for training program design.
