- Puchi Pocket -

Kyoto Design Labにて2016年8月29日~9月2日に行われた英国王立芸術大学(RCA)との共同ワークショップ
『Intelligent textile for Healthcare,Well-Being & Sports Contexts 』
にてテキスタイルを用いたヘルスケア分野に新しいイノベーションを与えるという課題を元に作成。
阪神淡路大震災被災時、避難所でのインフルエンザ集団感染にあってしまった僕自身の経験談を元に考案。
集団感染は免疫の低下時に起こりうると考え、避難所に効率良く水分や栄養素を供給することが集団感染を防げるのではと考えた。
大きなプチプチの中に水分や栄養カプセルなどを入れ,避難所に食料,水分,栄養剤などをに一人一人に必要な分だけを効率良く供給。
また従来はペットボトル、ご飯とを別々に配る必要性があったが必要な分をちぎるって配ることで効率良く避難所にいる人に配れる。
使用後はゴミとして捨てるのではなく体温の低下を防ぐブランケットとして使用できるシステムの構築プロトタイプの作成を行った。

“Puchi Pocket” was created in a Royal College of Art (RCA) and Kyoto Design Lab workshop titled “Intelligent textile for Healthcare,Well-Being & Sports Contexts ” for giving new innovative solution to the healthcare field by using textile. We came up with this product inspired by my personal experience when I got a flu right after a big earthquake hit Japan “Han‐Shin Awaji Earthquake disaster” in 1993.

Considering that mass infection can occur at the time of declining immunity, we thought that supplying moisture and nutrients efficiently to evacuation centers would prevent mass infection.

To tackle this problem, we created innovative bubble wrap to carry water bottles and nutritions to the shelter. This product contains water, nutrition capsule and meals in each big bubble for each person to carry. Up til now, we had to carry plastic bottles and meals separately for a lot of people. By using this, we can effectively carry them all together by tearing this “Puchi Pocket” for each person. After consumption of the contents, “Puchi Pocket” can be reused as a blanket to prevent from the cold. Thorough this workshop, we developed ideas and systems. And We also made many kinds of prototypes.
