ADMT model version 2

This is the product Mr Irfan said he would be more impressed by. It is an elderly friendly plug remover. As elderly are not very strong, they have difficulty removing plugs from sockets. This product makes use of the lever system to help the elderly remove the plug.

ADMT model version 1

this is supposed to be an elderly friendly handphone. It has a large screen, large buttons and an elderly friendly charging port which is supposed to make it easy for the elderly to plug in the charging cable.
However, Mr Irfan said not to make things too complicated and that a handphone was not very different from other students. He then suggested something he would like more.

The house should enable the elderly to live a normal life with their family. There should be a wide range of housing to meet the elderly’s needs. Homes should be catered to all ages.

Homes should be accessible to the elderly. They should be able to reach their homes with ease. Lifts, walkways and pick up points should be built.

Seniors should have good healthcare and for those who cannot live alone, there should be old folks homes.

There should be opportunities for the elderly so they can have good relationships with their families and friends. People of all ages should have a good attitude to the seniors.

They are planning to make housing more accessible to the elderly population.

We can cut back on the less nessacary things and keep the important things of a good quality.

Hospitals should hire cheap workers to keep the bill low.

I can help the elderly preform tasks and encourace others to have a good attitude towards the elderly. I can also design things to help the ellderly.
