Aqua Cradle
  • Year: 2016
  • Client: Roltex

With its rounded bottom, being wider than the top of the glass, the cradle neatly snaps the Aqua glass.
In the health care sector one can help patients to use the cradle with one or with two grasping ears.
The ears slide on, fixing themselves by design, always leaving at least one split of the cradle open to snap around the glass.
The position of the grasping ears is optimized for Parkinson patients’ ergonomic abilities.
We sketched, we prototyped, we 3D modeled and we prototyped again.
Patients were involved in the development process, making the final product even better than expected.
