Applying deodorant is such a routine gesture that most people do it without thinking. Not the case for people with upper limb disabilities. Try opening a deodorant bottle with one hand, and you'll immediately run into issues: how to get the cap off and back on, for starters. For people without hands or limited grip, precise application can be tricky, too.
Degree — marketed as Rexona in many countries, and Sure and Shield in a few others — teamed up with design experts, occupational therapists, engineers, consultants and people living with disabilities to remedy that problem, and has now created the world's first adaptive deodorant.
