This study focuses on sheet switches, which are among the most common user interfaces in electrical appliances, and explores the comfort level required by elderly users. Touching a switch is a common action in our daily lives; however, little research has been performed on this action. In particular, we were unable to find any reports on the comfort elderly users experience upon touching a sheet switch. Thus, electrical-appliance designers have no well-prepared reference data when designing new products. As a consequence, elderly users experience discomfort when using new appliances. Our goal is to construct a guideline for designing comfortable sheet switches for elderly users. In this study, as the first step toward achieving this goal, we attempt to clarify the physical parameters of sheet-switch features that contribute toward ease of use and comfort.
