Sam Farber founded OXO to create kitchen tools for people of diverse ages and abilities. His wife, Betsey, suffers from arthritis, and it was painful for her to peel vegetables. OXO partnered with Smart Design to create the Good Grips brand. The designers explored dozens of prototypes, including a rubber bicycle handle. Improving access for disabled users can improve the experience for those of ordinary ability.
