About the Work

We believe that inclusive design leads to better design for everyone.

We wanted to revolutionize deodorant design to include everyone, however they are able to move. By co-creating the product with the disabled community themselves, we have designed a deodorant that’s easier to handle, easier to identify, easier to open and close, easier to apply. In fact, it can be opened and used with your mouth and feet if, you are unable to use your arms or hands.

Our team was international, diverse and multi-disciplinary, including a disabled inclusive designer, engineer, occupational therapist, psychologist and members of the disabled community.

Innovative design elements include:
-MAGNETIC CAP for easier opening and closing for users with limited muscle strength and allowing for auditory confirmation for visually impaired users.
-LARGER ROLLERBALL to cover more surface area in one swipe as additional movement is difficult for people with disabilities. Also eliminates risk of hair being tangled on the rollerball.
-HOOK design for easier handling (the hook can be hung for opening with one hand).
-EMBOSSED LOGO for the visually impaired.
-Bottom GRIP that requires limited to no finger movement.

To ensure the prototype is effective and fully accessible, Degree has created a beta program to engage the disability community to trial the design and give their feedback on its concept, product features, and messaging, helping to improve the design for the full global consumer launch.
