SELF-AID / Band-Aid Packaging


SELF-AID is a single hand band-aid aiming at solving the problem people face when using conventional band-aids.
The now existing two-fold structure makes it impossible to be opened and stuck on when only one hand is available. This is a distinct problem when one of the hands is hurt and hand injury is the most common circumstance in terms of using band-aids.
The SELF-AID follows the structure of a sticky note allowing people to stick onto their body soon after pulling it down instead of removing the package. The bending cover can hang at the edge of a desk making one-hand performance possible.
