Entry Description: Currently, only four percent of New Zealanders donate blood each year (five percent USA). Share is a new and unique system that aims to increase this figure by creating a positive and friendly experience and help to bring greater public awareness to the importance of donating blood. Share does this by putting a focus on comfort and relaxation and allowing social interaction whilst giving blood. People need more incentives, such as an enticing, less clinical setting. With Share, donors are able to enjoy a more relaxing ‘café’ style experience whilst giving blood, and can do so as individuals or in groups. Share is designed to be a unique system consisting of one table, two chairs and two trolleys, which allow the layout to be changed to suit either an individual or a group of donors. The overall design layout takes up only a small footprint, with full consideration of ergonomics for both the nurse and donor being taken into account during the design process.
