Foldr

By djunarto ng, ong kok chung, zames chua feike

We do laundry almost everyday, and folding laundry is a chore. Folding shirts is even more challenging for elderly in Singapore, many of whom live alone and have to face the struggles associated with decreased strength and motor skills on their own. This is where Foldr comes into play. The user can simply raise the clothes onto the clips of Foldr, and wait a few seconds while Foldr folds the clothes. The clothes will be stacked onto a neat pile and the only thing the user needs to do is collect the clothes when they’re ready. This greatly reduces the amount of effort an elderly user has to do to fold the clothes.
