Abstract [sv]

Designingenjörsstudenterna, Pedersen och Birkehag, på Högskolan i Skövde har i samarbete med hjälpmedelsföretaget Handicare AB arbetat med ett produktutvecklingsprojekt under våren 2012. Projektets syfte var att uppgradera företagets befintliga produkt QuickMove som är ett uppresning- och förflyttningshjälpmedel inom vården. Målet var att bibehålla QuickMoves funktioner och säkerhet samt skapa innovativa lösningar och minska transport- och tillverkningskostnader. Produktutvecklingsprocessen skedde iterativt och började med kundundersökningar i form av enkäter, intervjuer och fokusgrupper. Med hjälp av detta gjordes en kundkravsspecifikation som under hela projektet fanns nära till hands. Därefter påbörjades idégenereringen med hjälp av diverse kreativitetsmetoder. En fullskalig modell byggdes därefter i VP-rör och silvertejp. Utvärderingar och tester gjordes på modellen som därefter kunde vidareutvecklas och modelleras i programvaran SolidWorks. Hållfasthetsberäkningar, materialval, tillverkningsmetoder, formspråk, kostnader och ergonomi var områden som arbetades med och ett slutkoncept fastställdes. Resultatet bestod av ett uppgraderat hjälpmedel som fick namnet UpAway. Hjälpmedlets fraktvolym kommer att minska med 75 procent och produkten har färre antal delar jämfört med QuickMove. UpAways nya genomarbetade design och funktionella anpassningar kommer leda till fler nya användargrupper både inom Sverige och internationellt/globalt. Enligt studenternas bedömning har UpAway alla förutsättningar till en bredare marknad.

Abstract [en]

During the Spring of 2012 Pedersen and Birkehag, two product design engineering students at University of Skövde, carried out a product development project in cooperation with Handicare AB. The aim of the project was to upgrade QuickMove, the current standing-up and transfer aid used in health care and developed by Handicare. The goal of the project was to maintain the functions and safety features of QuickMove while creating new innovative solutions and lowering the transportation and manufacturing costs. The product development process was iterative and started with the research of customer requirements, which involved user studies and interviews. The customer requirements specification is based on customers’ needs and was used as guideline throughout the product development process. Ideas and concepts were generated with various creativity methods. A full scale model was built with VP-pipe and duct tape. Evaluations and tests were performed on the model and further developments were carried out. To analyze the result a visual model was built with the software SolidWorks. Strength of materials analyses, material selection, development, design, cost and ergonomics were all taken in consideration and a final concept was elaborated. The result was an upgraded aid named UpAway. This aid contains fewer parts than QuickMove and will reduce transportation volume by 75 percent. The newly developed design of UpAway, adapted to customers’ demands, will generate customers’ interest and according the students thus result in a broader market both in Sweden and worldwide.
