Accessible Product Design

It’s Christmas time, and we’ve been reflecting on what a great year it’s been for the product design industry.

Here’s a round up of some recent accessible product designs:

Shiro Studio’s 3D-printed walking stick

Why should a walking stick be an embarrassment? This ENEA walking stick is the result of a long-term research project by Shiro Studio. It is designed to be comfortable to use, but also to work better for its user by being lightweight yet strong.

Rombout Frieling’s Vertiwalk lift

Rombout Frieling has created a verticle walking system enabling less physically able people to manually lift themselves between floors in a building. The Vertiwalk lift is designed as a human-powered alternative to stairlifts. This provides an opportunity for the user to exercise as well as manoeuvre independently.

See-Eat-Through tableware

Aurore Brard, a Design Academy Eindhoven graduate, has created tableware that features colour accents. The colour accents help visually impaired people to dish up the correct amounts of food and drink.
