HANDI PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
(2020 - ongoing)
This project is the development of the research and case studies conducted with Deliciously Disabled into market ready products through the brand Handi.
This project is a multi-disciplinary collaboration between the fields of Industrial Design, Product Design Engineering and Occupational Therapy.
Deliciously Disabled has now launched as the brand Handi to develop and supply products and services to People with Disabilities to enable a goal of self-pleasuring in the privacy of their own environments without assistance. The research and development conducted by the RMIT team has been handed over to Vert Product Design in Sydney to enable a rapid development of the first product to market in 2021.
