+TUO ⋅ F. OSTUZZI, S. OSTUZZI, F. PACELLI ⋅ +LAB ⋅ 2014
+TUO is the starting project of my PhD research, in collaboration with +LAB of Politecnico di Milano.
+TUO is a co-creation project of assistive devices for people with Rheumatic Diseases. All devices, mainly bottle openers, zip aids and other small kitchen devices, are co-designed and personalised in terms of dimensions, shape, colours, etc. After the co-design process a co-production stage followed, where all the devices are 3D Printed using FDM (Fusion Deposition Modelling). The projects are also shared online on thingiverse.com
Details about the whole process can be found here.
