This project brief explored how lawnmowers could be designed to be more user friendly for the ageing population. Thorough usability testing and ethnography I was able to observe current lawnmowers in use and address the difficulties associated with mowing the lawn. The final design is a cylinder reel mower, it has a flip handle to make turning at the end of a stroke easier along with a telescopic handle for easy height adjustment. The cutting reel is sharp on both edges meaning you can cut grass in two directions.
