This idea came from a published author and user of MMC devices, Brenda. She has created a list of potential ideas for devices. This post describes one of the device ideas:
The goal of this device is to aid the user in applying mascara. This device would be intended to be used by individuals who struggle with shakiness, limited hand mobility, limited pinch grip strength. Being able to take off the cap, apply the mascara, and place the cap back on would be important features of the device. Aswell as being able to still see where the tip of the mascara is to ensure eye safety and to apply it accurately.
There are multiple design challenges seeking solutions around applicators for make-up so potentially consider one device that could help with other applications such as lipstick and nail polish.
We are looking for a designer/maker to develop this device. Brenda is open for contact for any feedback or details but currently is not on the forum, so feel free to reach out in the comments to be put in contact.
I run engineering design projects at the University of Ottawa where we focus on accessibility projects. The projects would run over a semester (Sep-Nov, Jan-Mar, May-Jul) and I think we can help with this! If you are interested I’d love to meet and explain our program, please message back here or send me an email at [email protected].
