-These are the different Prototyping forms/ working parts that I have made.
-The first form is the rotating biohazard container, it keeps the nurse/patient/patient family from reaching inside and accidentally sticking their fingers. The entire piece is then removed and disposed of when full. The rotational piece sticks out of the side of the bag and the needle is inserted through the top.
-The second form allows the needles to be put in through the top, but that part stays and the "cartridge" or the collection container is removed through the side and then disposed of instead of the entire piece.
-The cardboard/plastic iterations are size studies as well as material changes.
-For future prototypes in the next week I will be experimenting with size and form. I will also start to consider the other aspects of diabetic care and how they can be incorporated inside of the purse. Details such as how the containers stay in place and how they can be easily removed will also be explored.
So far possible materials are: Recycled Paper Pulp, HDPE, Rip-Stop Nylon, Self-Skinning Foam
