Ergonomics (Product description and Idea Trigger)

~Toilet brush~
i) Describe the product. (Appearance, Color, Function, etc)
A green brush that is small and short so that it is handy and can be brought out of the house.
ii) What are the design considerations when designing this product?
We must consider if the user will feel comfortable while using the brush.
iii) Would an elderly faced difficulty using this product? If yes, what are the difficulties that the elderly would face?
Yes,it is too short in length so the elderly with have to bend down when washing the toilet and they might hurt their backbone.It also has no grip so it will slip easier.
iv) What do you think can be done to improve on the design of the product to suit the elderly? (Sketch the improved design in your sketchbook and take a picture of it. Post the improved sketch at the end of your post.)
The length of the brush should be longer so that the elderly will not need to bend down when they wash toilets.
