Usability Study of AFARI™, An Aesthetically Designed Outdoor Fitness Device

Angie Bechard

Abstract/ Summary

“Physical inactivity is the biggest public health problem of the 21st century”, (ACSM, 2011). The elderly population plus individuals with even one disability is estimated at over 77 million, a large percentage of whom do not exercise due to limitations of adaptive mobility equipment (ACSM). AFARI™ fitness support equipment was therefore designed to meet this critical need.
