Medical Extraction Aid provides a new solution for elderly people who may find it difficult to access their medicine - both bottled and blister-packaged. Exaggerated handle proportions allow the device to be grasped and operated with limited hand strength or mobility. It features a large poper to be used on blister packaging, and a twist-cap grip to help access bottled medicine.
Project by Aidan Caldwell, James Garrad, Josh Martland and Jack Writer. Video produced by myself.
