Below are three concept generations which which I produced for my final year project. I picked the area of helping elderly people in the home. From my research I found that a major area that they had problems with was the task of emptying the ashes from an open fireplace aswel as closed stoves. Restrictive movement as people age was a major complaint I found. In these concepts I aimed to generate ideas which may be further investigated to solve the problem of having to bend or kneel down to remove ashes.
