Brompton Washscape is an Innovate UK-funded project to develop an accessible washing machine for people with Assisted Living requirements. C-Tech Innovation is a technical subcontractor for the project, responsible for building the early prototype and, eventually, the finished article.
Recently Dr Bob Crawford, C-Tech’s New Product Development Group Manager, joined Brompton Washscape’s team for a focus group in Edinburgh at Blackwood Housing Association.
This Initial User Review asked a group of users from the target audience for their thoughts. Participants with a range of disabilities were able to interact with the mock-up machine and identify areas for improvement.
The project promises to be a boon to many people who have been forced to live with clumsy washing workarounds for years, and C-Tech Innovation are delighted to be involved.
