In early 2018 I decided to found TruRegard ltd to help tackle issues around better aging and inclusive design. Over the course of 6 months TruRegard had £25,000 in funding to develop the Tru Unity door handle.
One year later the Tru Unity handle has been a Finalist in 3 National competitions, Winners in 2 International design awards, Displayed in the Brno Design Museum and Supported by Arthritis research UK
USER LED design
Developing the design, from the very beginning with sufferers of Arthritis and other muscular-skeletal conditions that can cause joint pain and restricted movements.

One of the core design goals, aside from pain free controlled movement, was to remove the stigma of "disability" and offer a product that inspires pride.
Ideation and development
Focusing on creating something equally aesthetically pleasing, engaging and usable.
