DESCRIPTION OF THE DESIGN Our design is a side couch storage for elder people. Itâ€™s a storage made of drawers , trash, wheels and a height adjustment stick. Its used to help old people have everything they need by their side. Its light and easy to move. It also has a height adjustment stick so they could press on it with their legs and the storage will be higher so they wouldn'tâ€™t have to bend or get up to reach any of the drawers and its cover is a rotating table so it would cover the storage but at the same time its rotated to be a table on the couch. Our idea is a way to help old people with their daily life and make it easier.
