We found that the disabled have a strong self-esteem. They hope they can do some small things within their power. However, the tape measure on the market needs two hands to operate in most cases. Some disabled people have only one hand, so they can't easily use the tape measure for measurement. To solve this problem, we have designed "one hand", which adopts nano adsorption technology, so that the disabled can complete daily measurement with one hand. We pay attention to the group of one hand disabled people and hope to improve their quality of life through detailed product design.
(1) In terms of technology, "one hand" adopts nanoparticle adsorption technology, so that one person can complete one-handed measurement work. The back of the tape measure is made of nano-foam adsorption pads. Its working principle is similar to the suction cups on gecko feet. The surface of each adsorption pad is composed of a large number of micro-air cells, like miniature suction cups, which can be pressed lightly with one hand. The gas in the extruded part of the airbag is exhausted to form a vacuum, and then the adsorption force is formed to make the tape measure firmly suck the plane.
Proposed Benefit to User
The one-armed handicapped person or the hand injured person can also complete the brief measurement work by themselves to improve personal well-being . "One hand" can improve the quality of life of disabled people living alone, and can also complete some measurement tasks with one hand, so that disabled users can feel the warmth of product design.
Proposed Benefit to Client/Brand
One-armed persons with disabilities have difficulty in completing the measurement alone at home, and they do not want to be a burden on themselves. "One-hand" allows them to complete the measurement work within their ability, which greatly increases the user's experience and self-esteem. From the perspective of the brand concept , such a product is the most impressive.
Proposed Benefit to Society
"One-hand" pays attention to the disadvantaged groups in society. It allows the disabled to receive care by solving small problems in life, which will be conducive to the stable development of society and the transmission of love.
In terms of shape, "One-hand" adopts the bionic shape of woodpecker as a whole, which is small and cute. In terms of size, the length is about 10cm, which is just right to be grasped by one hand. In terms of color, white and elegant green are used to give people a sense of comfort. On the whole, "One-hand" is simple and beautiful.
The "One-hand" is about 9cm long, 1.5cm wide and 7cm high
