INPROVEMENT AND DESIGN
“SOMEWHAT SIMILAR AND SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT”
Based on my interviews, I investigated the dining culture and eating habits of British people more carefully and produced my second prototype. I designed two plates that were very similar in size, height and appearance, producing them using 3D printing. The only difference between them was their depth, which meant that they could hold different amounts of food. However, when they were filled with food, they looked very similar.
Through such an empathetic design, patients would feel that there was no difference between themselves and their families when eating while still choosing to control their food portions, and their families would not need to adjust themselves too much in terms of changing their diet.
