Design For Health
Collaborative project between TDSB, Co-design and Industrial Design students at OCAD University designing solutions for people with special needs.
Users who experience a lack of grip strength and hand mobility
UX Design and Product Design
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.
- Market research
- Journey mapping
- Material explorations
- Bill of materials
- Value proposition
- User Testing
I designed an assistive wearable tool for people with lack of grip strength and hand mobility.
After coming up with my prototypes and ideations, I had partnered up with an OCADU student to make my vision come to life.
