Sometimes we take advantage of the ease and accessibility that comes with having two arms and two hands. We tend to design with the assumption that our users have complete function as well, but with research and I have found that we should start designing more with empathy and consideration of the 15% of the population that is living with disabilities. I simplified the current task analysis that was associated with scissors to try and minimize the number of steps and eliminating the need for two hands. The goal in designing this project was to create something to help people who have lost control in one of their hands to be more efficient, productive, and have more control over their daily tasks. The SNAPCUT is a small device that aids the user in the process of opening small packaging, as in: sugar packets, ketchup packets, small chip bags, etc. using only one hand.
