Usually, hair dryers have to hold the dryer with one hand and dry their hair with the other, so both hands are not free. Therefore, it is difficult for disabled people to use it. UDRY hairdryer means "universal + hairdryer". It is a wall-mounted product that is different from the previous one, and it is designed so that anyone can use it conveniently without restrictions. The wall-mounted fixing part has a curved groove, so the angle can be adjusted up and down. It also harmonizes with the interior space in a modern style, and can be easily adjusted with a touch display. It is installed in the interior space of the house, so it can be used immediately, and there is no need to plug in and organize the wires.


Great potential here, specially for disabled users. However heat / safety with manual angle changing has to be thought through.
