Description

To provide better assistive technology services using 3D printing technology in local communities, a database, Support System for Assistive Technology (SS-AT) was created. SS-AT contains data on various types of 3D printable assistive devices along with tips from experts and users with disabilities. By implementing posting functions, SS-AT allows users to share helpful information with others.
