UUU is a sexual aid for people with reduced mobility and spinal cord injury.
UUU is a sexual aid primarily for people with reduced mobility and spinal cord injury. It serves as a stool with a rubber bridge that helps to carry the weight of a person. It lifts the man and makes movement easier.
For people with spinal cord injury is very important that the other person would not sit with all his weight on their body. That could cause serious trouble and this product is helping with this problem. The aim was also to detabuize the topic of sexuality of disabled people.
UUU is made of beech roundwood, a typical material for wood-bending. The construction was made by the company TON from their prefabricated elements of 002 chair. Textile elastic is stretched over the construction.
