"If handicapped people are able to live indepently, an architect should ask himself the following questions: -which actions - and especially which sub-actions - are essential for handicapped people for the execution of their daily activities at home; -which are the spatial consequences when technical aids (e.g. a wheelchair) are used? In this study we intend to investigate those aspects of the use of space, that cannot be visualized with the help of drawings, pictures or written documents. For this purpose a more dynamic medium such as video is necessary. Under the mentorship of two researchers and with the help of two revalidating patients, two students are involved in the preparation and production of various video films. The aim is to investigate the following activities: entering the house, preparations for the night, the use of bathroom facilities and cooking and eating. The pictures for the films are taken in a "training apartment" and in a laboratory setting. The revalidating patients are involved as "actors". Next to this a computer program was developed. With this program - by using animation techniques - movements and actions can be analyzed in detail. On lAPS-b we will present the work on "preparations for the night". In this film attention is given to: moving to and from the bed, getting undressed and dressed, storing and collecting clothing, transfer to and from the bed, doing the bed, moving to andfrom the bathroom."
