A new kitchen product designed to allow wheelchair users to use the kitchen independently
Hi my name is Louis and I’m a current 3rd year Product design and manufacture student at Nottingham University. I am currently working on a project to change the way wheelchair users carry out tasks in the kitchen and to enable them to cook independently. I am posting looking to gain an insight into the daily struggles wheelchair users face when it comes to cooking. If you have any suggestions or modifications to current kitchens or kitchen products that you have carried out or problems that you face daily that you would like to be eradicated I would love to hear them. In particular if there are any tasks, i.e cooking on a hob, that are especially troublesome and if you have any suggestions to counteract this.
The information gathered in this post will be used to inform and develop a new kitchen product design that will change the way wheelchair users are able to cook and to improve everyday life. All information that I do gather will remain anonymous and will remain confidential
