The conceptual 'Vivo' vacuum has been designed by Alex Worthington as a cleaning appliance for those with physical impairments and/or the elderly that will enable them to maintain more autonomy. The vacuum features an upright design that can be pushed easily by the user without the need to bend down or use their dominant hand to guide is around a space. This will help to reduce the strain on the body, while the dock will automatically siphon debris up and into an elevated canister to streamline emptying instead of requiring the user to bend down or struggle with bag replacement.
The conceptual 'Vivo' vacuum speaks to the increasing number of elderly consumers who require specialized products that address their individual concerns and accessibility needs.
