Design for User Needs. 1 in 5 U.S. Adults will be diagnosed with arthritis.
The fact is that arthritis is very common and there is a large market of people who want to avoid symptoms and feel comfortable, while living life normally.
I researched the industry for arthritis products, anatomy and medical devices,
and statistical analysis and behaviours surrounding the condition.
I decided to design for hygiene, and after sketching and creating mock-ups,
ended with 3 brushes, one for each level of pain.
The final prototype was for intense pain, with joints from the tip of the finger, to the shoulder feeling pain.
