Safer Homes

Done by: Ho Zong Han
Class of 1-03 (2011)
Description: With Safer Homes, a project designed by Zong Han, the elderly will have easier and safer access to areas of the homes, which once posed a hazard to them. To enable the elderly to have better access to heavy objects on high shelves, a rotating cupboard was designed to rotate both top and bottom shelves to the desired height of the elderly. The elderly will never have to climb on chairs to reach for the highest shelves. The clothes rack will work on a pulley system to minimize the energy used by the elderly to bring their clothes in and out of the house, depending on the weather. The furniture layout will be made more spacious for easy wheelchair access.
