Users and my product

Here's a scene where an old man is approaching my product of table. This product aims to prove itself useful for the elderly to use.

Prototype of product for the elderly challenge

Having seen some people I know(elderly), I see them often in the kitchen when I visit them, preparing a treat. A common situation is where they would have to exert a lot of strength on poring some liquid to a container from say...a kettle. The elderly might not have to exert so much strength when based on my product idea. This plank of metal is more than meets the eye. It is actually a foldable support for the kettle. Applying the concept of the lever, the elderly can carrying out the task with ease while exerting less strength. I'm currently still trying to improve on the prototype.
