Kilenc Pont

for Makers with 3D printing for disabled people

An interdisciplinary social project connecting disabled people, makers and healthcare experts to develop new ways of communications. It uses local materials and open-source research to create physical performances of disabled people through a moving puppet. Body movements are tracked with various sensors to control a simple robotic arm. It's an easy to use and intuitive way of self-expression.

Movingmood

for Makers with 3D printing for disabled people

People with disabilities have the highest unemployment rate, at 65% in the European Union alone, with a cost of over 400 million to governments. The main cause is he lack of adaptation to jobs, often a barrier to entry. New technologies are an essential tool for improving the lives of people with diversity. Our solution is to convert the adaptations of the sewing machines for wheelchair users, through 3D printed technology.

Draken Technology Transfer Association

Submitted to Makers with 3D printing for disabled people

Our proposal is robotic glove which translates sign language to audiable speech for the friction of the price of the nowadays sytems. We already have a working prototype, which can translate using microcontrollers, and we need funds to make it a finished products which can be created by fellow makers and enthusiasts.

3D ZINGS

Submitted to Makers with 3D printing for disabled people

We present a proposal for an evolution in children's hand prosthesis field. Our design lets customize the prosthesis with any Disney character but it's more important the fact that we've decided to make a scaled prosthesis to fit the Childs dimensiones since current solutions in the market are too big. Then we can offer to every child with this kind of problem a smart and customized prosthesis.
