3D Printing for People with Disabilities

People with disabilities are often confined to using assistive equipment that is ugly and badly designed for their needs. Wheelchairs, crutches, handrails, vehicles, cutlery - most things in life - are given no aesthetic value and are usually utilitarian.
Still a relatively new idea for the average consumer, 3D printing and additive manufacture has huge potential to disrupt in the same way as the web. This session will look at what it means for people with disabilities to have the power to revolutionise the products they use and make them highly personalised.
With products that attendees can touch and play with, this session will cover what the possibilities are, what some of the risks might be and how to overcome them, plus what happened when we got a room full of disabled people to hack their own stuff.
