The Surefoot bathboard for The Helping Hand Company was the first complete product I designed in its entirety from scratch. The brief was to design a brand new bathboard which incorporated locking suckers for added perception of safety.
These suckers needed to adjust to suit any bath and they needed to be locked in position using a single quick-release lever. The fact they needed to both slide and rotate and lock using independent teeth engagements made this particularly fun to engineer.
I was responsible for the complete design, prototyping and testing for this product, liaising with the overseas tooling supplier, and resolving production issues.
