DPT Student Prints A 3D Adaptive Gaming Device

"You've got a friend in me."  - Toy Story

Leah Grinvalsky, a DPT student, knew her friend, Katrina Simons, has always had an interest in gaming. Due to Cerebral Palsy, Katrina has limited control of her left hand making it difficult for gaming and video games inaccessible. Leah searched through forums and explored solutions to help Katrina participate in gaming. After conducting her research and finding a printable 3D adapter that would allow Katrina to use the controllers in one hand, Leah visited the University of Minnesota Libraries Makerspace to print the prototype.
