UNIVERSAL PROBLEM HAVE TO BE SOLVED INVENTIVELY

UNIVERSAL PROBLEM HAVE TO BE SOLVED INVENTIVLY

Dear members
This is my first contribution ,I have a problem and I hope all members share me for generating solutions using triz tools.
The problem is ” Olders get double fracture due to Sudden fall”
Older need to move freely and at the time of fall ,he/she should be protected from any Fracture or pain
wating for your ideas ………

NOTE : I posted this problem in TRIZ for problem solving group and I post the problem here as per mr.Prakasan Krecommendation

Hi Mohammad,
This is truly interesting…

– This is how I will go about solving this..

I have used CRT of TOC…. to help solve the problem. Looking at it and breaking the underlying assumptions and contradictions the following could be few potential solutions…..
Solution 1:
– Have the special clothes designed for older with damping capability. At first place, what comes to my mind is to have the similar
the similar damping material used for packing electronics items. They are very light weight (with only air pockets) and can be integrated in to the
clothes.
– The contradiction for not making it complex but still able to be wearedr can be resolved, by putting the dampners only on those portions of the body
where bones are most vulnerable to fail.

Solution 2:
For TRIZ practitioners this is just another IFR. We can have a virtual reality simulator. Where olders can perform and get the feel of all the activites
seating at one place. This is like playing a Video Game providing you all the desirable effects and suppressing undersirable effects like Falling and tiring.

Solution 3:
Make the bone structure with more sturdy (may be using special intakes into body).The bones can be anyway improved and made stronger with healthy diet and excercise. The physical activities can be cateogorized using High efforts required Vs relative body movement. If the task requires high relative movement of body parts then be proactive for selecting the place of performing activites .. ex. Working place, playground, terrrains etc. The activities with low relative motion and high efforts sometime can be the objective and may not really need any special attention.
….Hope at least this serve as a good starting point for arriving at solutions.

Really a challenging problem and more important to solve, as more older people are living now than ever in the recorded history. To begin with, may be a light metal (ex titanium, Li alloys) based braces on most commonly known fractured parts to prevent future fractures, can can be thought of.

Thank you Prakasan , for opening this chance to discuss solving problem using triz tools

i will uploade the file of 9 – window after modification that ouer present system will be the older NINE WINDOW FOR OLDER PROBLEM.docx

Dear Mohammad,

Very interesting problem, and obviously a classic TRIZ case. Good to see you have already started applying 9-Windows. I look forward our members to apply their TRIZ thinking and come out with approaches and finally solutions. I would request all members to start “applying” TRIZ techniques/innovation techniques before jumping on to solutions.

Let me start with my analysis:

Using Ideal Final Result:
– What is the IFR in this case?

Applying IFR can start from what we would like to see from “wish” or “dream” perspective, and can start from as ideal as
– People never get old, their bones never grow even if they grow etc.. while these are probably against the law of almighty, or a medical research papers, thinking at these lines would be really interesting.

Coming to some of the near-term IFR could be as follows
– perhaps we need all our elder generation move as free as a kid, “without sudden fall of any sort”.

Is it possible to achieve that they never fall yet play like a kid? What can we do to make them never fall?

If we notice, we are actually getting to the “super-system” problems now than looking at the sub-system related. Here system-present is an old man who would like to play like a kid and I’m considering the sub-system present from the original problem domain as his internal system including nerve system, bones etc, and super-system is the place around me, like my home, park, office, etc…

Just wanted to bring this aspect of changing paradigm of problem solving using TRIZ thinking.

I’m not jumping to the solutions yet, but would like to leave another thought of solution space: Assume the problem we would like to solve is the “How can we make older people never fall in various condition, one which includes moving swiftly or playing as a small kid”, what are the various elements associated with this?

– What causes older people fall?
– What situations do they fall?
– How might we make them never fall?
– What are the resources around us to make them never fall?

Resources are another technique in the systematic-innovation space to identify anything around us we can use to solve the problem. One can find more article and writings about Resources here.

I look forward to see more TRIZ analysis for this problem, and my sincere thanks to Mohammad Surrati for submitting very interesting, universal problem. I look forward to learn more TRIZ way of identifying the real problem here and come out with innovative solution.

Request our TRIZ experts to apply some ARIZ technique for this problem.Please use contradiction only in the END 🙂

Best,
Prakash

Best Regards
