The utilization of 3D printing has been a game changer for many people with disabilities; this year alone we’ve seen advances made in hearing aid technology, surgical interventions, and social integration tools that have been made possible as a result of the technology. Not only has 3D printing helped to create a new level of possibilities for people living with disabilities, it has also raised awareness that this is both an exciting and rewarding area of innovation to pursue.

Launch Forth and Allianz that challenges members of their innovators’ community to develop a new mobility device that can be prototyped using 3D printing. The challenge is to design not only a functional item but also make it aesthetically pleasing.
