GMA / Key


Elderly in their daily life will encounter lots of inconvenient things, so I designed this product for them. For instance, my grandmother has arthritis issues, sometimes hand swollen joints, feel painful and powerless. For basic activities like opening the door, grandma would find difficulty to rotating the key. In order to help those facing the same difficulties, let them be more independently and also improve their quality of life, so I designed this GMA key. The concept was inspired by the corkscrew. When I added the key grip surface, because of the use of leverage, the longer arm can save more effort. It helps them to open the door easier
