Concept:
Elderly people in their daily lives will encounter a lot of inconvenient things, so I designed this product for the elderly. For instance, my grandmother have arthritis issues, sometimes hand swollen joints, feel painful, powerless. For simple action like opening the door, grandma would find it difficult to rotate the key. In order to helping those facing the same difficulties, let them be more independently and also improve their quality of life, so I designed this GMA key. This design concept was inspired by the corkscrew. When I added the key grip surface, because of the use of leverage, the longer arm can save more effort.
