The caring fan / Healthcare Fan

The caring fan

The majority of the old prefer using electric fans in summer. However, it is easy for them to catch cold if they pay little attention to the humidity. Besides, many elderly people suffer from skin diseases, such as dry skin, erythra, which means they need proactive skin care constantly.
The electric fan we designed is meant to alleviate the problem. By providing cool breeze mixed with drugs that may relieve symptoms, we could make the elderly feel better in scorching days.
