Serene - Morphy Richards Inclusive Steam Iron - User's don't realise that conventional irons cause un-natural and pronated grip postures, which in the long run leads to Carpel Tunnel Syndrome.

This steam iron redesign for Morphy Richards removes any chance for a pro-nated grip posture by leading the users into a more comfortable and natural grip posture by altering the handle shape and position as well as using a new user interface to compliment the handle.

Serene - Morphy Richards Inclusive Steam Iron - 1.Today's iron handles and interfaces severly impair the users' grip position and wrist movements.

2. A pronated grip position occurs whereby users' palms are bent horizontally across the top of the handle.

3.Angles of ulnar deviation occur whereby users angle their wrist awkwardly to get to sections of the garments.

4.A combination of a pronated grip and angles of ulnar deviation can lead to median nerve compression within your wrist, which can lead to Carpel Tunnel Syndrome.
