I've been suffering from asthma from around the age of 7 and personaly i'm sick of it, I'm now 25 years old and cant go anywhere without my inhaler, with the horrid fact that I will probebly never grow out of the condition I am starting to think of other ways to make my life that little bit easier.
I'm currently a year 3 product design student at hallam universiry and have 2 self directed projects which I must do, for one of these projects I am wanting to look into the current designs of inhalers we use to date.
I think they are all nasty pieces of design. To say that these objects have to be carried everywhere we go, they dont seem to belong anywhere when u are carrying them.
So because of MY personal experiences with the inhaler I am wanting to redesign the shape of the inhalers but I am just one person. I would really appreciate peoples opinion and personal experiences on this issue so I can get a general feel on wheather this is a wide spread problem for people or a minority.
I will give a link to the development of this project if I decide to take this subject further which of course depends on what the asthma community as a whole thinks about this.
Any respons at all will be very helpful indeed and I thank you all in advance.
