Ergonomics (Product description and Idea Trigger)
i) Describe the product. (Appearance, Color, Function, etc)
Color: Cheese yellow (according to Arthur)
Main function: A pair of hooks to hang things on. Hang to a door by hooking it over the door
Other functions: Slide side to side to adjust to the width of the hanging object
ii) Width adjustment so users can hold objects with different widths. The hooks can also hold up objects that are below a certain weight due to its design. As a hook, the maker considered the weight and durability of the product.
iii) Sometimes the hooks might break if the elderly drop heavy grocery bags on the hooks, its color might also be mistaken for the door on which it is hung so some elderly with poor eye sight might not see it.
iv) the hook can now slide side to side and be adjusted to different heights to suit hunchbacked or taller elderly. It is also portable as it can be folded.
