Project Location: Montreal, Canada

My initiative will connect people with physical disabilities to existing local Makerspaces, so they can create their own assistive devices according to their individual requirements. Makerspaces have emerged in most Canadian cities, and contain shared tools ranging from 3D printers to woodworking equipment. These tools hold huge, largely untapped potential to create assistive devices that would otherwise be very expensive and potentially inaccessible.
