To develop and improve the traditional gimbal stabilizer for smartphone or camera-based acquisition device, the handle part is the main point to be considered. Product Design and Development (PDD), Ergonomic Design, and Rapid Prototyping (RP) have been applied for creating the guideline of the conceptual model of this developed gimbal stabilizer. Dimensions and physical characteristics of the gimbal’s handle have been created by applying the concept of ergonomics to fit the people who use it. Using this proposed design can help the users to minimize fatigue during prolonged imaging activities.
