Studying Hand Form and for Cane Handle Application
What are the factors that makes our hands feel stable and comfortable when we are holding onto things? How can we minimize strength and maximize grip? Will it be possible to create an universal form that satisfies these questions?
Patients suffering from arthritis were brought into class to give feedback and comments on designs done by the class. Each went around the class and gave specific and honest thoughts and comments about the designs to students. Main goal of this project was to study about hand forms and to grasp a general idea of what arthritis can to the hands and what and how to design products used by them.
