We found that the disabled have a strong self-esteem. They hope they can do some small things within their power. However, the tape measure on the market needs two hands to operate in most cases. Some disabled people have only one hand, so they can't easily use the tape measure for measurement. To solve this problem, we have designed "one hand", which adopts nano adsorption technology, so that the disabled can complete daily measurement with one hand. We pay attention to the group of one hand disabled people and hope to improve their quality of life through detailed product design.
