Roominess Adaption System - Development of kitchen units for disabled people.
This report covers a Bachelor degree project, where a new concept of kitchen for disabled people has been developed. In addition, this report describes the design process employed in the project as well as the details of the design work.
In order to develop a successful product, technical data like requirement specifications, materials currently used by the company and the manufacture of such products were considered throughout the progress of the project. In addition, we carried out a market research and visited the fair “Leva & Fungera” in order to analyse the current situation of this market field and what disabled people would think about kitchen modules that completely adapts to their requirements. This research gave us an understanding of the user´s needs and provided us with valuable help for an ergonomics evaluation study. Different creative methods were used to come further with new ideas, as well as different and more economic solutions than the existing ones. Finally, CAD models were made with Pro Engineer Wildfire 4 and evaluated with Jack 5.1 in order to visualise and evaluate the final concepts. The ultimate result is presented in detail in a video made in 3D Studio Max.
