A Swedish SME, active in the industrial design field, has, in cooperation with medical expertise, designed a series of anatomical foot files for removing calluses and dry skin from all parts of the foot.
One model is of the traditional hand-held type, although equipped with rounded abrasive surfaces, as well as an extra long easy-grip handle, for comfortable use.
The other one is an anatomically designed handsfree model, which is placed on the floor, and the user may either stand up or sit down while taking care of his/her feet. Also this model has rounded abrasive surfaces, designed for maximum access of all parts of the sole. A rubber ring at the bottom makes sure the device stands firmly on the floor.
The company is now ready for the Asian markets, and is at this stage, as a first step, looking for distributors in Japan. Hence, the collaboration sought is a distribution services agreement.
