3D Printed Assistive Devices
Wilmette Public Library offers a selection of 3D printed assistive devices for daily living, suitable for all ages.
They can be borrowed as a kit in our Library of Things collection, and also purchased through our 3D printing services.
The designs for the Assistive Devices were created by Makers Making Change. Makers Making Change is an initiative of Neil Squire, a Canadian non-profit that uses technology, knowledge, and passion to empower people with disabilities.
Detailed documentation can be found at Makers Making Change's GitHub repository, 3D Printed Low Tech Assistive Devices Kit.
