The 3F Glove!
Made to help Autistic patients everywhere
The 3F Glove
The product acts as an external support for more fine finger movements. Restricting the user’s fingers from quick and sharp movements. This slows down their hand movement which improves their handwriting.
The product provides more balance to the hand while it writes making the hand less likely to shake.
The utensil used will be able to stay on the hand because the rubber provides more grip for the fingers.
Overall it will improve people's writing skills as well as their fine motor skills.
Autism Spectrum Disorder
ASD or Autism spectrum disorders are neurological disorders that hinder people’s ability to communicate properly. Specifically in our scenario our patient, Priya has a form of ASD that makes her unable to speak and write in an efficient and timely manner. Priya is a grade nine student and is very bright but because of this disorder, she cannot express her ideas. So we created our product to help her, as well as the many other ASD patients, that can't communicate by writing.
The product is made out of a heavy-duty rubber so that the user can get a good grip of what they’re holding. It also makes the product safe for the user.
The ‘bumps’ are also made of rubber. They are located in between the middle and ring finger when worn. It will ensure that the glove stays on the three fingers.
This part ensures that the product doesn't fall off the hand. It is located opposite to the palm at the back of the hand.
