'TOM' Magic

We’re a global movement of communities connecting makers, designers, developers and engineers with people with disabilities (aka – ‘Need-Knowers’) to develop technological solutions for everyday challenges. Designs are free and available for any user to adapt for their needs!

TEAM GRABBER

Born without arms, Kim struggles to grab objects outside of her reach. This simple and elegant mouth-controlled mechanical grabber extends her mobility and independence.
