Survey on a Potential New Product


Thursday August 07 2014 09:46 AM

Cooking pot with siphon attachment for people with a disability

Andrew Fahy, is on the International Entrepreneurship Masters programme in the University of Limerick (UL). He is currently completing a Strategic Commercialisation Project to complete the final stage of a Business Masters. Andrew is researching a potential product and is asking people with MS if they would be interested in a specialised Cooking Pot with Siphon attachment for draining boiled water from a cooking pot more safely; reducing the risk of being burned and to see if this product can benefit people with a disability on a daily basis.

The product was orginally designed by a former University of Limerick product designer who's Grandfather has Parkinson's disease. If there is enough interest in buying the product, then the product designer can make a decision to have the product produced and to offer it for sale.

What will I have to do? 

Taking part in this study will involve completing an online questionnaire. It will take approx. 5 minutes and your help will be greatly appreciated.
