One of the most challenging things we have come across this semester is just getting started. There are so many different ways this software can be designed and so many different grips which can be designed for the software. To focus our research, we decided to start with one grip design for a group of clinicians in needs of a specific grip. From there we can use their feedback and designs to print more grips (expanding the grip repository) and gain feedback on potential software design needs. Tomorrow, Sam will be 3D printing grips to provide test models for the clinicians to use while brainstorming ideas for a potential crutch grip design.
A few other things we started to organize are…
- creating a set of questions for the clinicians
- creating a supply list for crutch brainstorming
- organizing our exploratory design notes from the previous sessions
