The elevatOR care / Elevator panel design

The elevatOR care
The elevatOR care

There’re certain groups of people facing difficulty when taking the elevators; such as, wheelchair users, crutch users, staff that carries hospital beds or medical equipments alone.
First, it’s inconvenient for disabled people to operate buttons for high floors section. Second, emergency button is too high to reach when needed, especially for patients.
Most importantly, It takes more time for disables or staffs with medical equipments passing through. But the existed operate stations do not have “length opening button”.
Focusing on those mentioned problems and redesign. Creating a more friendly experience for taking barrier-free elevators.
