Do First Aid Kits Need a Redesign?

by Adele Peters

April 18, 2013

DesignIt, a Danish company, created a similar kit, First Aid Within Reach, that's arranged by type of injury, color-coded, and filled with simple instructions. But none of these kits are widely available; the first two appear to only be concepts. Isn't it time to redesign the cheap, ubiquitous first aid kits sold at drugstores? Most come with instruction manuals, but aren't there better ways—like simple infographics—to quickly communicate information when it's needed most?
