Hi –

 

I’m an Industrial Design student in my second year at Northumbria Uni. I am currently designing an aid to help people who have limited dexterity grip small objects. After some research and development I have come up with this initial design which is based around pliers, but with a comfortable, large grip and a long handle to provide leverage – thus reducing the amount of force needed to apply grip.

 

This is just an initial idea and it would be great to open the floor to any ideas – how could this be improved? Are there any bad points that you can see? Ect.

 

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks – Oliver
