---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of an ergonomic guide dog harness for individuals who are blind or have low vision. Vapen is an improvement on the guide dog harness that incorporates a ball joint socket into the handle of the harness, providing individuals who are blind or have low vision strengthened communication with their service animal while also improving ergonomics for their hand. An added feature is the ball joint socket allows the harness to be reassembled into a white cane, reducing the number of items the user must carry. For further customization the handle and cane are adjustable in length to fit various users and dogs. TITLE: A Little Improvement Goes a Long Way. WEBSITE: Yanko Design.
