One Arm Towel Drying


Metro Makeathon




Harry's challenge is to create a solution that he can operate independently to dry his body using one hand. The solution needs to be portable so that he can take it to the beach, swimming pool, and on holiday overseas. It also needs to be safe for him to use independently without creating a hazard if he were to fall over or suffer from a seizure.


This solution includes an elasticised belt with a ring and clamp on it that attaches to a regular towel. The ring can slide around the belt to allow the towel to reach all areas, while the belt anchors the towel like a second hand. It can be used anywhere and with any towel.The belt is machine-washable. The other components are 3D printed.
