Lily - Ideation - Using our findings from the anthropometric data, usage studies, and competitive product research, we generated several ideas for ergonomic hose nozzles suited specifically for seniors’ needs. Specific design opportunities related to fatigue, grip strength, as well as wrist and back angle. The Lily supports a neutral wrist position and accommodates multiple watering tasks.
