Arm-use Basin / Home bathroom,Personal Hygiene

Arm-use Basin
Arm-use Basin

Arm-Use Basin alters the traditional form of basins to make it more convenient for amputees.By applying the Bionics Principle, the traditional basin design is altered by adding two extended appendages to the sides of the basin. This allows amputees to conveniently support the basin with their forearms. The curved form of the appendages also creates a negative space that makes it more comfortable to hold up the basin. Arm-Use Basin is a simple design that makes a significant difference in the daily lives of amputees.
