Abstract

This evidence-based research explains and provides interior design strategies for redesign and future design to meet the needs of MS patients. The project entails an analysis of MS patient needs, an assessment of interior design implementations in similar medical fields (with patients who have similar symptoms to those with MS), and the creation of information materials containing recommended design practices for distribution. The materials will include details on lay-outs, upholstery, space planning, suggested equipment, color schemes, and recommended practices to be applied to current or future facilities that treat MS patients. These materials provide previously unexplored and much needed research and applications for use in the field of interior design.
