Early Prototypes

Developing a new product is not easy. Or quick. My mom knew the general concept that she wanted to create for UnbuckleMe, but the devil is in the detail. Additionally, orthoplast (used for splint-making) is a highly flexible material and presented design challenges to create a top handle with sufficient rigidity, while also enabling flexibility in the curved “neck” portion. We were wishing we had a materials science engineer on our team!
