Utensil Accessibility

This project originated from an elective course I took as a senior at the University of Illinois, GE 402: Product Realization. In this project, I worked on a cross-disciplinary student team of 4 to develop personalized utensil handles for a young individual with motor disabilities named Jeremy. We partnered with a Chicago-based care facility for children with disabilities, Easter Seals, to create a personalized handle using 3-D scanned impressions of Jeremy's natural grip. My contributions involved the design of mating snap fits and features for utensil attachment.

I was asked by the college of business to give a brief interview on this project for a new University of Illinois entrepreneurship course, "3-D Printing Applications".
