Assistive device  
“Within Reach” contest entry, 2016

The brief for the competition was to design a 3D printed device that would help people with limited hand dexterity. In response, I designed a tap adapter for people with dupuytren’s contracture  - a condition that causes their hands to close into fists.

As shown, the simple adapter can be fitted onto most taps and allows for operation via a closed fist. This forms a low cost solution compared to refitting all the taps in the home.

The design received an honourable mention in the contest.
