Walnut Health care / Health care device and application

Walnut Health care

The ‘Walnut’ is a health care service inspired by a traditional hand massage using walnuts, which is popular within elderly people. It is designed to be enjoyable, to provide a constant and easy health care service. The ‘Walnut’ device is like a fidget toy, which was often regarded as a culture of the young. However, we find that the old can be potential customers to enjoy the same experience that fidgets toys provide, and the ‘Walnut’ can make daily health care into something enjoyable.
