Subject: DEXTERITY AID
Iām an Industrial Design student in my second year at Northumbria Uni. I am currently designing an aid to help people who have limited dexterity grip small objects. After some research and development I have come up with this initial design which is based around pliers, but with a comfortable, large grip and a long handle to provide leverage thus reducing the amount of force needed to apply grip.
To see initial design follow link:
This is just an initial idea and it would be great to open the floor to any ideas how could this be improved? Are there any bad points that you can see? Ect.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
