AbilityMate is not just a supplier of assistive technology or a mob of geeks 3D printing stuff; we advocate for a sustainable and ethical future that is informed and encouraged by the principles of the next industrial revolution. AbilityMate is catalysing a new economy and blurring the lines between designer, maker and consumer with people who have disabilities!
We are creating a global commons of open-source designs and setting up localised factories where these designs will be made. Since 2015 we have been adding to and refining our collection through make-athon events where our community have co-created dozens of products specific to a person's needs.
