Twisto
I created this product in an aim to aid the development of both the posture and balance of children who are struggling to hit the early milestones. I began by tracking the movements of the body and related them to the development of a child’s core - the primal muscles for balance and posture. I then plotted the highlighted movements and began forming a scooter that would exercise these muscles. By twisting from side to side on the platform  the scooter is propelled forward straining the Transversus Abdominus and both the Internal and External Obliques. The scooter is completely mechanically driven which was a challenge in itself, however I believe these challenges have helped me develop as a designer and I look forward to many more challenges to come.
