I am in my final year studying a BSc in product design and for my minor project and I intend to design a spacer for children under five. The current spacer devices on the market are functional but does not evoke positive emotions which makes it hard to administer the medication willingly. My daughter who is 4, has been diagnosed with asthma and I initially found it very difficult to get her to use it and she still does not like to use it 8 months later. The main topic of study is emotional design and want to try and evoke positive emotions from the device so children want to use it and gain a sense of achievement.
Does anybody else share these difficulties?
Do you think this is a good idea for a project and why?
Does anyone have any ideas or information?
