Nurses work longer than average shifts and suffer from strain injuries on their backs due in no small part to constantly bending down to reach bandaging. UPGRADE is a tool for them to work better and more efficiently. By moving the placement of the bandaging we reduce greatly the need for bending. Moreover, we designed many features that make the process of getting bandaging quicker, more effective and more hygienic, such as angled faces for visibility and reachability, an ample opening and a groove that holds the bandage for the nurse to cut and prevents contamination. All the while decluttering and optimising space on the medicine trolley.
