Ergonomics (Product description and Idea Trigger)

Name: Orange Skin Peeler.
Appearance: A circle to put a finger in, with a sharp edge at one of the sides to cut into the orange skin.
Colour: White
Function: To cut off orange peels.
(ii) The design considerations were to make is easy and usable for whoever is using it.
(iii) Would an elderly have difficulty using this product?
No. Unless the elderly has no fingers or cannot move his fingers, he/she should be able to use the product.
This is the new design. The "Ring" is made up of special rubber which has the properties of a rubber band, so that users of different sizes can use it. And furthermore. the ring is more comfortable and has more grip.




  1. Your new design is not really different from the original. You could actually indicate what type of material you would want to use for your new design.

  2. i like your idea, but(according to me) the hand is harder to control than the fingers, YIFAN
