Hanfang Maker / Chinese medicine grinder

Hanfang Maker
Hanfang Maker

Traditional medicine is an intricate part of Chinese healthcare, and most elderly see it as the way to keep healthy. Some elderly choose to decoct the medicine at home, a process that turned out to be complicated and time-consuming. And also remembering the right temperature and duration of every stage in the process is hard for someone with a poor memory. It is also the market blank that currently there is such a product to ease this problem.That is why we designed the “Hanfang maker”. Our goal has been to mix this ancient knowledge with modern technology to make it more accessible so that the elderly can achieve a long and healthy life.
