iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2020

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2020

This breathing training device is designed for children with asthma. It aims to improve recovery efficiency during treatment through a gamified interactive experience, while reducing the physical and psychological discomfort caused by the disease. In terms of styling, it has the shape of a lollipop, which is familiar, comforting, and appealing to children.

This is an excellent example of a user-oriented design. It takes a functional device that might normally feel uncomfortable, both physically and psychologically, due to its associations with the negative impacts of asthma, and turns it into something fun and appealing to children.
Jury Statement
I am very happy to receive this award. This is a great encouragement to me and my teammates. In the future, we will work harder and strive to produce more outstanding design.
