CLAMP WAND / crutch,accessory appliances


Caring to our elders admid our aging society has become our major concern. Thus, we want to conduct a research on them. We went to some nursing homes and do two kinds of researches, namely Individual In-Depth interview and Focus group discussion.

We concluded that seniors had difficulty to pick up the stuff from the floor. In
order to solve this problem, we design a crutch equipped with a clamp. In this way, it will lessen the burden to their when they bend their body, and therefore, they can pick up the stuff easier.
