Project Description

PetFit

 

Description:

Every pet lover and owner may have the dream to stay with their pets every day for the rest of their life, as they see their pets as their family members. To ensure a healthy life for their pets, owners would try their best to walk them everyday; however, weather might not always be on their side. When it rains or storms hit, owners may not be able to bring their pets out to exercise.

The HKDI Product design graduate Ho Wing Hang had the same problem, that is why he designed PetFit, a machine that works similar to a treadmill but combined with a bicycle machine can be placed indoor in case the weather is bad outside. While the pets run on the treadmill, the owner can also exercise with the bicycle. For a better bonding experience, the heights of both the treadmill and bicycle parts on PetFit are adjusted to more or less the same level.

With PetFit, owners and pets can work hard on their perfect bodies and health together. The「DesignXcel」team would like to spread this co-exercising idea to the public through the exhibition.

相信每位寵物主人都想和他們的毛小孩天天一起去散步,鍛鍊身體之餘也增進寵物與主人間的感情,但奈何天氣總是不似預期,一到雨天或颱風季節,主人就不能帶寵物出外運動。

香港知專設計學院產品設計畢業生何永亨亦有此煩惱,所以他構思了PetFit這部把單車機和為寵物而設的小型跑步機結合起來而成的室內健身器材,並得到永生膠木電器贊助製成樣品。PetFit的單車機部分選用了坐姿式,讓主人和寵物的高度距離拉近;主人能夠一邊健身一邊和寵物聊天,毛小孩能夠在水平視線看到主人自然倍感安心。

有了PetFit,寵物主人就能和毛小孩全天候為完美身形、健康體魄一起努力。《設計列陣》團隊希望藉着展覽向大眾宣揚這個寵物主人共同運動的構思。
