iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2020

Standing aids are designed to solve the problems of stiff legs caused by old age and disability, which make it difficult for people to squat and stand again. This device takes advantage of the contractive force of elastic materials to support people in standing up and to prevent them from falling.

This design proposal is an excellent marriage of function and form. Thanks to a soft and delicate design, the standing aid doesn't feel much different from a part of the human body.
Jury Statement
We are honored to receive this award and take great encouragement from this to produce better design. Thanks to our teachers for giving us valuable design advice and thanks to the students for working so well together.
