Raya – rehabilitation computer mouse

About

A corrective computer mouse

In recent years carpal tunnel syndrome has become one of the most prevalent occupational hazards as people spend increasing amounts of time on their computers. What begins as light pain and tingling in the hands can eventually lead to paralysis and muscle atrophy. Raya forces the user to continually shift the position of the hand, gently exercising it without hampering speed or precision. A series of buttons are placed at different levels to activate all four fingers, the function of each of these being set by the user in a dedicated app.

    Born in a city in Poland called Częstochowa, well visited by pilgrims cause of its famous Monastery, I did grow up with a natural interest in people’s behaviour and habits. Therefor the question of “why do we what we do?” was always part of my journey. In my career as a young designer, graduated in 2018 from Industrial Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow, I am now trying to find answers to this question. By traveling around the World and exploring diversities in relation with humanity and design, I had various possibilities to develop myself as a attentively, open-minded person- likewise as a designer. Over a past few years I had a chance to expose my designs in many national and international exhibitions, such as: Vienna Design Biennale (2017), Biennal of Student Design DESIGN.S in Brno (2018), or Must See in Warsaw (2019). For me design is a powerful tool to improve not only people’s life and potential, but also a purpose to confront them with daily issues. ​more
