Bending Collection / Cleaning tools

Bending Collection
Bending Collection

Do you have to hunch over in order to sweep under your table, wardrobe, or bed? These simple actions seem easy for us but could be dangerous for the elderly, especially with hypertension. A sudden standing up after squatting would possibly cause hypertensive patients faint from dizziness. Therefore, we design this “bending collection” for this group of people.
The bended broom could clean up dust under bed or “dead corner” aloft; the adjustable dustpan is more humane for scooping up dust.
