And he's not the only one in the world.
Every year, 60,000 people are newly diagnosed with Parkinson's, and this number is only rising.
As designers, we dream that our designs solve these multifaceted problems,
one solution that solves it all, but it need not always be like that.
You can also target simple problems and create small solutions for them and eventually make a big impact.
So my aim here was to not cure Parkinson's, but to make their everyday tasks much more simple, and then make an impact.
Well, the first thing I targeted was tremors, right?
My uncle told me that he had stopped drinking coffee or tea in public just out of embarrassment,
so, well, I designed the no-spill cup. It works just purely on its form.
The curve on top deflects the liquid back inside every time they have tremors,
and this keeps the liquid inside compared to a normal cup.
But the key here is that it is not tagged as a Parkinson's patient product.
It looks like a cup that could be used by you, me, any clumsy person,
and that makes it much more comforting for them to use, to blend in.
So, well, one problem solved, many more to go.
