I appreciate the opportunity to share this simple but extraordinary bottle concept with you. Six years ago, I began thinking about the basic concept for the shape and function of this bottle. In March of 2011, I teamed up with a product development company and the Simplicity (Patent Pending) was born. The two prototype bottles that you are examining were produced on a 3D plastic printer and are intended only to convey the concept, not a finished product.
I have seen the need for the Simplicity from two perspectives. One, professionally, as a provider of direct services to older individuals who are blind or visually impaired. The second as someone with Multiple Sclerosis who has lost the full function of his hands.
The Simplicity aims to be an important part of what will be a multifaceted solution to the task of creating accessible prescription materials. I look forward to being able to continue (with your input and suggestions) to refine the Simplicity. The key benefits of Simplicity:
I believe the Simplicity can be the vehicle or foundation upon which many of the ideas put forth by this working group (large print options, voice output, Braille, etc.) can be brought quickly to market and help millions. I am asking for the opportunity to collaborate with this team to help you achieve your goals.
