Nigel Bertram, Helena Harry, Holly Board,

Published Literature


The study summarised in this research overview, and the research paper available via the link, investigated the impact of architectural design strategies on the quality, performance and efficiency of the TAC’s new and retrofitted accommodation for traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury residents. Following on from the first phase of the study, which developed best-practice design principles for assisted living, this stage of the study looked at applying those principles for three participants with an acquired brain injury or spinal cord injury. The goal of the study was to identify potential improvements to the TAC’s home modification process.
