Here at 3D Rapid Print, one of the fastest growing 3D Printing companies in the Thames Valley, we like to keep abreast of the latest innovations in 3D printing.
The design of the coffee mug has remained mostly the same for circa the last 5000 years. Nonetheless, in January 2019, Allen Arseneau and his wife Diana Arseneau of Massachusetts, unveiled the bioengineering-influenced and 3D printable Jamber Mug, which they had developed over the last 2 and a half years. By trade, Allen is a biochemical engineer and Diana is a scientist.
Via extensive data analysis and assistance from a team of industry experts, the Arseneaus, analyzed the anatomy of the human hand and the geometry of archetypal coffee mug handles. The result is a coffee mug that is less strenuous on the joints, ergo it is more comfortable to hold. The handle puts a person’s hand in a more anatomically neutral position, lowering stress on the joints; it also enables the person to maintain a proper grip. A nub at the base of the mug’s handle adds extra stability, reducing the risk of spillage.
The advantages of the design of the Jamber Mug relative to conventional coffee mugs are even more significant for people with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, Parkinson’s disease, and thumb and/or hand injuries, since it’s significantly easier to hold. Each one is made of industrial-grade ceramic; they are also microwave and dishwasher safe. The mug exists in both a 12 oz. and 16 oz. size. Available designs include Lemon Zest Solid, Ruby Red, Admiral, and Moroccan Blue Sweep and Incline and Dove White.
