Tipot rethinks mass-produced electric appliances for people with arthritis. The kettleā€™s flat forward edge serves as a fulcrum that allows for the user to simply tilt it to pour, thus requiring minimal grip strength and drastically reducing their wrist strain. When tipped at a calculated angle of 43 degrees, Tipot can pour directly from its heating element while its asymmetrical weighted base maintains stability.
