Just One Chuo / Umbrella

Just One Chuo
Just One Chuo

An umbrella designed for one-handed disabled people to be fully folded with one hand.
For one-armed disabled people or normal people with one hand occupied, there is a problem that it is inconvenient to close the umbrella with one hand.
To solve the above problems, people often take the solution of putting the umbrella on the body or putting down the items in their hands and then collecting the umbrella.
Therefore, this design changes the umbrella head into a ring structure, and the ring structure fits the umbrella surface to squeeze the umbrella bone to achieve the effect of being folded by hand, so that the umbrella is closed.
