HOLD-EASE

Design For Health

Collaborative project between TDSB, Co-design and Industrial Design students at OCAD University designing solutions for people with special needs.

CLIENT
Users who experience a lack of grip strength and hand mobility

MY ROLE
UX Design and Product Design

PROBLEM STATEMENT
I had the opportunity to visit a disability school in Downtown Toronto to create solutions for students based on the pain points that they experience. Due to my observations I noticed that many of the students have a lack of grip strength and cannot hold certain tools on their own such as pencils, paintbrushes and utensils. I was very moved by this analysis because those are things that we interact with on a daily basis.
