The challenges that individuals with disabilities experience are challenges that are experienced by many kids of all kinds of abilities. By designing for people whose needs are the most challenging, the outcome is more accessible, inclusive, and effective than existing products, making it desirable for people with and without special needs. 

Swiv is a first-of-its-kind toothbrush designed for the needs of kids with cognitive disabilities that completely changes the motion needed to effectively brush teeth. By reducing the physical complexity of brushing, Swiv reduces all kinds of complexity: brushing becomes easier to learn and also easier to pay attention to and focus on.
