User & Ergonomic Study
How are objects hung?
How are objects taken off?
How are objects used while hung?
Mapping out the various gestures and postures used during hanging/taking off and utilisation of a hung object.
Geckskin®, A Mechanical Adhesive
Geckskin® works on the principle of Van Der Waal’s force, forming a mechanical bond with the surface onto which it is pressed. There is no chemical adhesive or glue that is used.
A piece of 2”x2” can hold up to 0.45kg of weight. GriphookTM, a product developed using Geckskin®, can be cleaned and repositioned upto 2 times.
