3D Printed tool for helping people write
According to Mr.Tatsuo Ishibashi,”This is a 3D printed tool for helping people write with a ballpoint pen. Writing is a ordinary action. But it is difficult for people with a loss in functioning like a muscle weakness. It has a light weight and is easy to don and doff. It is recommended to use together with “Zebra New Hard BN-5200” ballpoint pen. (For the sake of the simplification of the pen chucking method, we limited the kinds of pens.) Put a suitable pen into the chuck of the device by pushing. Mount it on 2D (Index) and 3D (Middle) finger as shown in the video. This pen can operate by means of translation and minute rotation of a wrist”.
“from exclusion to inclusion”, will become an important key as one of those solutions.
The 3D printing technology with the recent remarkable advances can respond to a variety of user needs. They will be supplying services and products that can respond to a variety of customer needs based on the inclusive design and the 3D printing technology.
