Ergonomics (Product description and Idea Trigger)

1)This product is a cleaning brush.It has a green handle connected to a sponge.The sponge is yellow and is a flower shape,it is smooth but the bottom of the sponge is rigid and rough as it is used to scrub the food from plates.The handle is looks a bit like a leaf,maybe to match the flower shaped sponge.
2)I think that the design consideration behind this brush is the handle.They could have attached the handle to the brush to make use of more force or to make it easier when scrubbing things.
3)I think that the elderly will have two problems.If the elderly uses the rough side,and wants to use the smooth side,they can`t use it well and part of the handle is covering the smooth side.Also,the handle might slip from the elderly who do not have a good grip on it.
4)This is my new design.I put a rubbery material on the handle to increase the grip.
