Universal design principles informed the shape of this domestic first-aid kit, which also provides a source of illumination. Furthermore, it was conceived as a decorative object for the home. It is an easy-to-use first-aid kit that offers a secondary lighting function. Its designers observed that the concept of a first-aid kit is not familiar to typical Taiwanese families. Therefore, they sought a form with which affinities could be easily found, and that could be looked upon as an art piece within the home. Their aim was to take care of the physical and spiritual aspects of health. ‘Curvy Scissors’ were designed with curved handles that are angled upwards at about six degrees. The curvature makes it much easier to pick up and hold the scissors, no matter which side is used. ‘Tape Dispenser’ doubles as a mirror base when not in use. The tape can be cut from multiple angles, and easily applied to any part of the body. ‘Tweezers Clip’ can be used to seal packaging and its wavy surface improves the grip. Redesign the first-aid kit considering the placement, functionality and form. The product is in the process of evaluation production. If the design were on the market, its designers hope it is not only available at pharmacy but also in furniture store. Be an awesome art piece at your home because ‘Nursing Kit’ takes care of your physical and the spiritual aspect of health.
