Laura – an armchair for confidende and care
BA Product Design Project
Laura is an armchair designed to take care of the elderly who, due to their age, may feel less confident in sitting and standing up. As we get older we begin to lose strength, balance and stability; unfortunately not only our bodies are affected by age, but also our minds. Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive condition that affects our intellectual abilities and accounts for 50-80% of all dementia cases. Especially in the early stages of the disease, it is necessary to keep the mind trained to slow down the deterioration. For this reason, Laura presents measures that take into account the needs an elderly person may have.
