Ergonomics and Anthropometry Part 1

Two different types of setup of a workplace are shown in the video.
1. Compare the two types of setup and state reasons why one of the setup is preferred.
The second setup is preferred as it is sleek and convenient to use and access compared to the messy and unorganized worktable in the first setup.

2. What are the area of considerations when designing a conducive and comfortable workplace?
The area should be spacious and convenient while still able to cater for all or most of the user's needs. The workplace should also have a comfy atmosphere so the user feels relaxed and at ease.

3. State the reasons why these considerations are important.
You cannot work well when your workplace is messy and I feel you can produce quality work more easily when you are comfortable and contented with your workplace.

My EQs on the Elderly Challenge

These are my EQs on the elderly challenge. (unranked)

1. Are the elderly really getting the care and attention they rightfully deserve?

2. Do the youths think the elderly like being an elderly?
3. Are there enough products to cater to the elderly's needs? Are they already in the market?
4. Are the environments the elderly live in really suited for them? Or are they suited for the majority of the youths?
5. Are the elderly able to gain independence without any assistance?
6. Are the elderly able to cope with the financial burden they have? Must they get any help?
7. Can the elderly be self-sustaining and support themselves?
8. Are the elderly able to move around freely and easily?
9. Are housing estates being developed to better suit elderly or youths?
10 .Are they able to adapt to their living environments without any help?

These are my EQs again (ranked)

1. Are the elderly able to gain independence without any assistance?
2. Are the elderly really getting the care and attention they rightfully deserve?

3. Are the environments the elderly live in really suited for them? Or are they suited for the majority of the youths?
4. Do the youths think the elderly like being an elderly?
5. Are the elderly able to move around freely and easily?
6. Can the elderly be self-sustaining and support themselves?
7. Are there enough products to cater to the elderly's needs? Are they already in the market?
8. Are the elderly able to cope with the financial burden they have? Must they get any help?
9. Are housing estates being developed to better suit elderly or youths?
10. Are they able to adapt to their living environments without any help?

Why I rank it like this?
Elderly, as most of us know, are highly dependent on us for almost everything. But at times, elderly will be left to take care of themselves. So, they have to be independent. But are they really able to do so? So I put the "Independence" problem at the top.

Are the elderly getting the care and attention they rightfully deserve? I personally feel not. Many neglect the elderly when the elderly have done so much for them. This is wrong, and a big problem towards the elderly challenge. So, this problem, I rank second.

The environments the elderly live in should be suited to them in my opinion. This will be a big help in helping them gain independence on their own. But sadly, most environments are not so. This is a problem that I feel must be resolved quickly. So, this problem is ranked third.

Understanding the ‘The Elderly Challenge’

Explain in your own words, the FOUR key recommendations of the report.

1) Having a barrier-free society that seniors can live independently while still being able to engage actively in society.

2) Making sure that the health-care and elder-care services are efficient in treating the seniors while still being able to be accessed easily and also affordable for the seniors.

3) Developing different types of housing to suit the needs of the seniors, allowing them to remain independent.

4) Active lifestyle in a safe environment suited for seniors so that they can take part in different activities with their friends or family.



State
ONE way that the CAI report is recommending to make our public housing more elderly-friendly

It recommends that the house type in both aspects for size and type, be varied. The length of land leases should also be varied.



State TWO ways on how we can ensure that the quality of elderly care here in Singapore is affordable

1) We can top up Medisave accounts of less well off Singaporeans so that seniors still have the means to afford health-care services.

2) Have family physicians to provide medical care for the seniors within their home so that the seniors can receive care in a familiar environment.



After reading the CAI report, what do you are the THREE things that you can do, as an SST student, to help overcome these elderly challenges

1) I can mix around with the seniors more and get to know them. This way, I can use this experience when it comes to their needs.

2) I can write a proposal to HDB on how to make a more senior-friendly environment as I feel having a "safe haven" is important and I think that the seniors will also appreciate the fact that they have a safe environment to live their life independently.

3) I can somewhat set up a petition to treat the seniors better and hopefully, I can use the power of influence to improve the seniors' lives.
