Ikea, Disability, and 3D Printers

Oh, I like this!

Ikea is making furniture better for people with disabilities — with the help of 3D printers

The team reviewed Ikea’s inventory and pinpointed more than 130 pieces of furniture and household items that are already suited for people with varying needs. Milbat also developed 13 add-ons that latch onto Ikea beds, shelves, shower curtains, pillows and more. They include hooks that attach to the side of a bed to hold a cane and a handle for opening drawers with a forearm instead of just a few fingers.
