Project Title: Study the problem faced by patients with impaired hand mobility and design drinking aid
Description: A project was part of understanding product development cycle. Aim of the study was to understand problems faced by patients with impaired hand mobility and come out with suitable drinking aid.
Work Carried Out: I carried out research both online as well as by visiting hospitals to understand scenario of patients who were affected with impaired hand mobility and their psychological conditions faced during each day they had to face for the first cup of tea/coffee every morning. This was followed by understanding the products which are available in market – they were not many and did not satisfy as appropriate solution. So carried out basic ideation using sketching, the best case scenario were then modeled using 3D software. Stress test and other analytics were studied and then prototype were generated using steel glass available in market.
Software Used: Modeling – Fusion 360 and Rendering – Keyshot 9
