Metro Makeathon

THE CHALLENGE

Anat would like to develop a solution to increase function in her hand, so that she can write and use utensils with more ease and stability. Anat’s right hand sometimes shakes and she finds it difficult to do everyday tasks quickly and independently.


THE SOLUTION

The team created a magnetic bracelet with a metal sheet which can be slotted into a notebook. The magnetic force between the bracelet and metal sheet will provide stability as the user's arm slides around, thus improving handwriting legibility. The team used a silicone material for the bracelet and provided the magnetic force with rare earth magnets. To maximise the effectiveness of the prototype, contact should be maintained between the bracelet and writing surface.
