Potential to help 50 million people

Around 50 million people worldwide have impaired motor skills in their arms and hands. Existing aids are often complicated and lack certain functions, especially when it comes to grasping objects. If you cannot grasp things, it becomes very challenging to live an independent life.

Collaboration between EGGS and Vilje Bionics

Together with Vilje Bionics, we will explore how we can design an aid that can help people with impaired motor skills live their everyday lives as independently as possible. By using user insights, we aim to create an ergonomic aid concept that can be adapted to different user needs. And most importantly, we want to design a product that the user can identify with and feel proud of using.

"This is a demanding challenge that requires precision regarding the solution. It's a further development of a product that has been well received. To guarantee further success, design competence will be needed to ensure insight and understanding of the user."
