MA work

Dis-balance is a project trying to help the elderly access rehab exercises in a more fun and interactive way. Disrupting the body's balance is the main approach of Dis-balance; to achieve the goal of triggering people’s motivation to do exercise on a daily basis, and also design a way to make these physical therapies interesting. I created a platform, which contains a joyful ‘interaction device’ based on different scenarios. It’s mainly for the elderly at this stage. Dis-balance's two scenarios are ‘do it alone’ and ‘do it with your family member’.
