Persons with physical disabilities, for example as a result of stroke, rheumatoid arthritis, ... and persons with moderate, severe to profound intellectual disabilities often need aids to help them perform activities in daily living.
Currently almost all of these persons are provided with prefabricated aids. From conversations with multiple (occupational) therapists it appears that these prefab tools often do not fit well or insufficiently.
Within the Assist3D project we want to enable the (occupational) therapists and orthotists to produce truly bespoke aids for daily living by using 3D scanning, 3D design and 3D printing techniques.
Improving the quality of life of people in need for customized daily living aids
by lowering the threshold for applying advanced design and production techniques that allow innovative and truly bespoke solutions that were previously not feasible
Make new digital technologies more accessible for health care organizations
by providing them with an easy to use digital workflow (including guidelines for measurement, design, production and finishing) dedicated to the design and production of bespoke aids
Create new collaborations
