Kitchen Station / Assistive Technology

Kitchen Station
Kitchen Station

The Multifunctional Kitchen Working Station consists of an Assistive Technology feature developed in order to provide autonomy, functional independence and quality of life for people who have functional deficits in the upper limbs. This product assists some instrumental activities of the daily living related to the preparation of meals such as food handling and packaging. Due to the shortage of Assistive Technology products, this project stands out for its aesthetic, technical and ergonomic qualities, complying also to the principles of Universal Design.
