Design Student looking for insight

Recommended Posts



I am a senior product design student from University of Illinois, and as a part of my thesis project, I am working on redesigning a bedpan. 


Both my parents are doctors, and thus I have seen the vast number of problems patients as well as caregivers face while using the bedpan. It is a product that almost everyone uses at least once in their lifetimes, but has never been improved because of the stigma attached to it. 

I was going through the different threads on this forum, and it pains me to see the problems people face. I would love to be able to help in my small way by making a better product and making a difference in someone's life. 


Please let me know if you or someone you know has used a bedpan, and would like to start a conversation. I would love your insights on the various difficulties people face while using bedpans, and how you worked your way around them.


My email address is jasani2@illinois.edu


Lets make a difference together.
