Flat Pack Chair
Collaboration with Kaivahn Sarkaratpour and Calvin Rupnow
Simple Design, Adaptable, Portable
We created a chair that could be easily packed and transported, yet still comfortable and able to conform to the curves of the body.
Finger Splint Re-design
Collaboration with Katrina Sustachek and Em Jack
The client has contracture issues which resulted from severe burns on the backside of his hands. In addition to helping the user keep his finger in the “open” position, the splint was required to be low profile enough that he can still put his hands into his pockets, and soft enough to protect the sensitive skin.
We constructed a dynamic finger splint, which aims to replace the extension mechanism of the second knuckle or the Proximal Interphalangeal joint (PIP).
Low profile design
Minimal contact around burn area
Controls finger movement, but can bend if needed for finger therapy exercises
