Throughout the world the availability of Assistive Technology and Disability Resources is mixed

In many parts of the world both the costs of the technology and the difficulty in importing devices makes options very limited 

This part of the website acts as repository of ideas for aids and resources that you can build for yourself, or where access to a 3D printer is possible links to designs and specifications you can use
