User Research

Caroma has partnered with University of New South Wales (UNSW) Built Environment department to better understand the needs, expectations and desires of Australians towards bathrooms to support them as they age.

Insights and information gained from our research is integrated by our Research and Design team to support innovative product development processes.

By better understanding user preferences and task performance of older people through methods such as motion capture (during UNSW research), Caroma has been able to develop superior independent living products, improving the confidence and mobility of our consumers in the bathroom space.
