The first purpose of this research is to lift the potential users with different knowledge and experience to a level which enables them to evaluate a product appropriately by an on-line questionnaire research method. The second purpose of this research is to explicate the elements of a burial cradle that may heal a grief for stillborn. With two purposes in mind, the authors conducted an on-line questionnaire and analyzed the results. As the results, an on-line questionnaire method has increased user's understanding of the product and its benefits.
