Who is your idea designed for and how does it enable older adults to live their best possible life by preventing falls?
The idea was developed to prevent and protect the elderly from falls. The glove makes it possible to regain balance and prevent falls because it is made of a non-slip material and easy to grip surfaces.
The glove will be an Ecological Leather Glove with reinforcement In Pvc with a kind of skeleton in embedded carbon fiber, to help the adhesion, we will put micro suction cup in all the extension of the glove.
The idea developed aims to solve the problem of falling of the elderly, offering a simple tool (glove) that will allow elderly people to be able to lean more easily near objects.
What early, lightweight experiment might you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?
Interview seniors to see if they would wear gloves. In addition, raise money for the construction of a prototype that could be easily tested in an asylum, for example.
What skills, input, or guidance from the OpenIDEO community would be most helpful in building out or refining your idea?
The feedback from the OpenIdeo team and other collaborators.
