Noi Non Ci Fermiamo
+LAB project 2017: +LAB | Roche | ANMAR | ALOMAR | APMAR
Designer: Basciu Francesco | Fausti Valerio | Mantelli Andrea | Ravalli Giuditta | Romani Alessia
Technology: 3D printing
‘Noi Non Ci Fermiamo’, NNCF, is a +ABILITY project, in collaboration with Roche Medical Affairs,
entirely developed by +LAB, with the participation of ANMAR, ALOMAR e APMAR.
The purpose is to create design products that can be used by everyone
but at the same time that can be customized on individual needs.
The final objects are the result of the investigation about needs of people with rheumatic diseases, who were project-leader of the design process and worked closely with designers, engineers, occupational therapists and doctors.
All the participants of the project NNCF.
During all the design phases of NNCF, all the participants were involved.
+ABILITY uses Design to improve or simplify some actions, especially for people who has a pathology.
Considering the importance of the difference between every person, it would be impossible to think that one standard product could be useful and confortable for everyone.
This is the main reason we work with people with disabilities, to ask them to guide us during the design process, because they are the only ones who can say 'if' and 'why' an object works fine.
The technology used is 3D printing, considering only the low-cost machines, in order to create many different prototypes, changing the shape, the dimension, and so on, with a technology that is not too expensive.
Thanks to the Shape Diver team support during the setup of the online configurator, ‘Noi Non Ci Fermiamo 2.0’ became the development of “Noi Non Ci Fermiamo” project.
The idea is to simplify user product customization by directly choosing the right size (S, M or L), defined on the Henry Dreyfus ergonomics measurements, and downloading the corresponding .STL file.
Currently, four of the nine original projects are available (Daisy, Pinzamisù, L’Hook and Le Micheline).
The results of NNCF
-9 people with
-6 occupational therapists
-9 customized projects
-9 solved difficulties
