Subject: Re: Design to meet a need...
Hi Michael what university are you at ? Are you going to New Designers next year? I did an Arthritis Project for my final year project as well. Take a look at my coroflot page:
This was designed for problems around the house, but you could do something similar for the workplace.
Heres a few ideas:
- Things you could make bigger and easier to hold:
- Keyboard could be made easier to use, think about different ways of inputting information without using the hands, possibly make keys bigger and less strength is needed to depress them (like on a laptop keyboard)
- Think about out of office workplaces, ask people on here what they do for a living (not everyone works in an office) that may spark an idea to solve a problem that hasn't been addressed.
Let me know how you get on!
