"Understanding Design" course project with
Industrial Design Centre, IIT Bombay
Mentored by Dr. Mrs. N. R. Rajhans (C.O.E.P Pune)
This concept is designed to instigate confidence and raise medical awareness in small children.
Often, in school premises, children don’t take care of minor injuries, which develop into an infection.
The Minion First-Aid kit aims to motivate children to mend their injuries independently through its attractive,
playful and easy nature.
Naturally, with a severe injury, a professional along with a complete kit will be needed.
Research on various injuries and its frequency in schools and articles by "Accident Research Center"
(Monash University) and the "World Health Organization" showed that maximum injuries
were bruises due to falls. (i.e. 65% of total injuries)
Therefore, the chosen target group was 5-10-years old children.
Cartoon themed First-Aid Kit makes it appealing and inviting at first glance.
To further increase its effectiveness, dispensers are utilized for simplicity.
