dc.descriptionEboon is a product to mentally and physically relieve Chinese females’ serious dysmenorrhea symptoms. Dysmenorrhea is a complication that accompanies women around the time of menstruation and it causes great distress both psychologically and physically, such as emotional breakdowns and physical pain. It can be severe enough to send a woman into an emotional spiral of self-doubt or so painful that bed rest hinders her daily life. This project was designed to provide mental and physical relief to Chinese women suffering from menstrual pain through product design. Eboon is a product to relieve women’s dysmenorrhea symptoms. Its body is a hand-held, self-heating product. When some women have dysmenorrhea, their hand temperature decreases to cold, making it difficult for them to focus on work and study. To solve this problem, Eboon houses disposable, replaceable, heat activated charcoal packs that relieve women of the cold in their hands caused by dysmenorrhea. That’s not the only thing Eboon does. Another feature is that it can help relieve the negative emotions that women experience during their periods due to rising hormones. Eboon is designed to provide an outlet for women’s emotions by smelling, pressing on soft surfaces and rubbing the hard particles against the touch. It also has a built-in sensor that records the user’s mood with each press, providing a quantified digital report digital report of the user’s emotions, turning unquantifiable mood swings into a visible emotional journey. In addition, due to the private nature of the topic, dysmenorrhea is rarely discussed openly, not only in China but also in the world. As a result, there is a lot of opposition to women being unable to participate in social activities, such as work, meetings, and studies due to dysmenorrhea, and they cannot even use it as an excuse to take time off work. Because of this lack of understanding, women remain silent even when they are in pain, and are reluctant to share or ask for help. I want to break this silence and make dysmenorrhea more accessible and understandable to the public. For this, Eboon’s big part is a pedestal that carries the smaller part. It is designed to be prepared so that people can hang it on the walls of their homes. The aim is that when women use the Eboon small part to relieve dysmenorrhea symptoms, their parents, partner, or roommates can tell whether she is experiencing dysmenorrhea or not by looking to see if the pedestal is empty. It creates a communication bridge between women and their closed ones, allowing them to proactively provide emotional support to women.en_US
