Sometimes we seriously underestimate how unsafe and uncomfortable is the world of objects around us — we are surrounded with sharp edges, ill-conceived design, hazardous materials. You can talk for a long time that it is not that bad — nobody shoots on the streets and we are able to treat diseases. But how many times have we torn our clothes with a sticking pen, injured the skin with little things, could not open or close something. There is a huge mass of such trifles. But one thing is to have it at home. And what if at the moment when you, cursing, jump on one leg, stumbled on the next corner, you have missed something very important? In fact, an error of one person (the designer) led to your error, and so on. I always dream to fix these little things — to make it more comfortable, more beautiful and so on … So this desire to change and improve the world of objects, by the way, was the thing that turned me into industrial designers.
This project is just one of such projects in this category. Doctors have a pile of equipment, and if it is not comfortable … Well what can I say. It is necessary to improve their world primarily because we all depend on their work.
We were invited to make the lives of doctors better — to improve the design of pedals to control appliances. The problem itself, by the way, speaks of crudity of the whole process — the physician just cannot manage the tool physically, so they need a helping personnel. It is the same as to drive a car with an automatic transmission and with the mechanic one — you can both of them, but the mechanics would still take more energy and attention from you. I sincerely wish you all not to think about such unimportant details in mechanisms surrounding us — let’s just work, do the main thing.
We thank dear colleagues from the Axiom for them being aware about their clients, we hope we are able to help you.
