Abstract

In the age of industrialization, it is very difficult to sustain in the market without challenging products. For that purposes, most of companies are trying to introduce new product design concept. Product designs have focused on customer needs concerning functionality and utility. For the success of a product in the marketplace may be determined by its aesthetic appeal, emotions, the pleasure it creates, and the satisfaction it brings to the customer. Considering all factors, we develop a product design concept is in new product platform categories as Weight Measuring Chair. It is used to measure the weight especially for the old man and children who are not able to stand over the weight measurement machine. This type of product can be used in clinic and hospital for measuring the weight comfortably. We think that the product have the ability to create a revolution in weight measuring technique. Therefore, an attempt has been made to discuss easy measure of the weight of all kind of physically hazard persons.
