The purpose of this undergraduate thesis project was to design and develop a first iteration prototype fingernail trimming device. The device was designed to make nail trimming easier, especially for people with poor eyesight, limited hand coordination or problems with hand steadiness. As such the device was designed to meet several design requirements such as improved nail trimming over conventional mechanical devices, simple mechanical design, safety, ease of use and a marketable construction.
