Nihaarika’s Plush Night Light Proposal

Work in Progress: Week 4

The Facts

Target User: Lisa who suffers from lower back pain before and during menstruation.

80% of women worldwide spend five to seven days in a month from mild discomfort to debilitating pain that interferes with daily activities.

Lower back pain associated with your period can start a few days before menstruation (PMS) and get better after your period is over. This type of back pain is typically muscular and caused by hormonal changes.

The Story

Lisa is a 23 year old woman (Target User) who is suffering from lower back pain before her menstruation and is waiting to head back home from school. She has been in the studio all day and has not had a chance to rest.

Therefore, I have decided to design (name of product), a plush night light that is a lower back pillow in the shape of a women’s uterus that supports her back, its fallopian tubes are described as arms hugging her waist. The fimbriae are described as helping hands and light up giving Lisa a sense of comfort.

Lisa can also carry (name of product) with her during long days at the studio and can have a 20 minute power nap by relaxing her lower back.

I used 6 white LED’s. The wires to the right side of the diagram are much longer since the battery back is located to the top right of the plush night light.

  1. I think this is such a cool idea especially for female who are struggling back & stomach pain. I think it would also be very nice if there is a pocket or a slit to put hot water bag.

  2. hi,Nihaarika!I think this is a very interesting idea, can’t wait to experience it! It’s not easy to sew this hand, but it looks so cute.
