Design for Murderball

 

Industrial Design / User Experience Research / Human Centered Design

I was fascinated and impressed by Wheelchair Rugby (Rugby played mainly by quadriplegics) after watched an Oscar-nominated documentary film “Murderball”, as an aspiring athlete myself (runner). I decided to work with them, not knowing anyone in the film. After hours of searching online (way before social media was ubiquitous), I found contact info for one of the cast members. Then I started my journey of this two semester project…After the research that included interviews with over 60 people for over 7 months, among them both international and local level players in the U.S., Japan and Canada as well as medical professionals, I developed and designed affordable portable exercise tools that are universal in scope.
