Collaborative project between TDSB, Co-design and Industrial Design students at OCAD University designing solutions for people with special needs.
Zehra Jaafar had the opportunity to visit a disability school to create solutions for them based on the pain points that they experience. Due to her observations she noticed that many of the users have lack of grip strength and cannot hold certain tools (pencils, paintbrushes, utensils) on their own.
She created an assistive wearable tool for people with lack of grip strength and hand mobility.
After coming up with her prototypes and ideations, Zehra had partnered up with an OCADU student to make her vision come to life.
