This thesis project was born as a result of our participation in 2017 in the workshop “Design for each one” that takes place every year in the Italian Multiple Sclerosis Association with students who are taking courses in Communication Design or developing a Master in Systemic Design as is our case. This is an enriching experience, both academic and personal, that generated in us, the interest in volunteering in this association, after the culmination of the workshop This is how in January 2018 we started the voluntary civil service. Given our constant presence in this association, we participated for the second time in the workshop of this academic year. Reinforcing our position as industrial designers in a context that starts from the individual to understand the particular difficulties they face in their daily life as a result of their condition as people with a degenerative disease. Of this last workshop, one of the projects was directed to the difficulty that Rodolfo Greppi , who has to leave his house to the center or other places when weather conditions are not optimal. This is how this thesis project arises, we seek to give Rudy the opportunity to carry out activities outside the home even when it rains, returning him a certain degree of independence that he lacks, and that is so important to him. We take as a first reference the feedback and the analysis of the workshop Design for each one, and our methodology is based on the Co - Design projection model, where the user is participant in many of the phases and design decisions.
