3D Printing Industry- Wheelchairs
Two innovative students, Kate Reed (of NuVu Studio) and Nathaniel Tong (of RIT), joined together to create the Hand Drive after being challenged to “hack” and improve the structure of the wheelchair. What research led them to discover was that the best physical motion for propelling the chair was achieved with a level-powered approach, one that generally costs $2,000 – $10,000 dollars just to utilize. That is until Reed and Tong sought to solve this expensive problem with 3D printing by designing and creating a lever-powered attachment for the wheelchair.
