Design Thinking P.1
Design Thinking P.1

To begin our 3rd ReadyRover prototyping session, we decided to go back to the drawing board and start with the main issues from our prototype 1.0. Some of the main concerns we addressed with our prototype 2.0: The table being wipeable, compact enough to fit in handicap stalls, lightweight enough to carry around and being comfortable for the changing table user and caregiver.

We focused on improving the structure of the changing table while still keeping some of the aspects that previously worked.

We deconstructed a version of our first prototype and followed sketches we created over weeks of simulation. We had to decide on the optimal scale between weight reduction, telescoping height and prototype additions.

User weight: 310lbs We've improved our machining tools and assembly process, thus increasing stability and overall construction quality.

Brainstorming Customer Discovery #1
Brainstorming Customer Discovery #1

Here, we compiled all the notes from our first contact with our initial family interviews. We realized there were several factors that were important to our supports that only came to our attention when we spoke to them. This is why we value our interviews so much.

Additionally, we tried our hand at drawing what we thought our first prototype could look like and certain "abilities and characteristics" our portable changing table should have.

We used a portable cot as was suggested and used by families. We asked ourselves... "How can we make this better fit our needs?"

A little work, luck and elbow grease.
