Ability Make-a-Thon #4

  • Micheal Crouch Innovation Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

We are once again bringing together people with disabilities and makers to innovate Assistive devices. All projects are things used by people with disabilities all over the world, so if we can create an open-source design for these you have the opportunity to have a big, worldwide positive impact. 

Time: 9am - 4pm

Address: Micheal Crouch Innovation Centre @ University of New South Wales Kensington, NSW. Enter via gate 2 on High Street, Kensington. The location is on ground floor of Building E10

RSVP is essential! - RSVP here

 

This month we are following on with the problems we uncovered at previous events See below for description of projects. 

The Boccia Ramp  

We are working on a design that would let people who can't lean forward, play. Solving this won't only help Kylie who attended our event, the director of Boccia Australia has confirmed this is a big issue for a lot of good players not only Kylie.  Kylie's key issues are:

1. She's unable to release the ball from a lower position, so need a way to be able to slow the ball down.

2. She needs a way to line-up the ramp to aim the ball in the right direction. The $4000 ramp has a swivel which works well, but Kylie's wooden ramp does not.

3. She needs a way to ensure the ball runs as straight as possible after leaving the end of the ramp

The Switch/PC Interface

Per input from experts Kylie and Marusha, the draft requirements for a useful ability switch are: 

1. Shall be small so that it can be positioned in the hand. 

2. Shall be attachable to the hand, for example by a velcro strap, so that it does not fall off or misalign at any time. 

3. Shall activate when squeezed by the hand. 4. Shall activate when pressed or banged onto a surface. 

5. Should be usable as a hand attached or foot attached switch. 

6. Shall have Bluetooth capability in order to communicate with an iPad. 

7. Shall be wireless (no wires for communication or power) from the wheelchair to the iPad or PC. 

8. Shall be battery powered. 

9. Shall not need to be recharged more than once per day with normal usage, if powered by a rechargeable battery. 

10. Shall have a programmable / changeable function for the switch, for example a keyboard keypress, mouse click or media button. 

11. Shall have electronics and software that is reusable in alternative multi-switch ability switch designs. 

12. Shall be an open source design that can be constructed by makers using purchasable components or modules. 

3D Scanned/Printed Ankle Foot Orthotics

There are around 3000 people in NSW alone who need Ankle Foot Orthotics (AFOs). It can take 10 months just to get an appointment with a hospital, cost starting from $700 per foot, and take 2-3 more months to make the AFO!

We want to see if we can do better. On the day we want to see if we can 3D Scan and then 3D Print an AFO. We are very fortunate to be joined by a Physio Therapist specialising in Orthotics and a professional Orthotist who will guide us.

Ability Maker events are a great way to learn about design and technology. The events are really fun, we eat pancakes make long lasting friendships and help people have a more normal life.

      Upcycled Aquaponics Workshop with The Bio Foundry
      Apr
      11
      to Apr 12

      Upcycled Aquaponics Workshop with The Bio Foundry

      Join us for a day of building up-cycled aquaponics, as we convert pallets & drums into beautiful high-producing urban gardens! We'll run through the principles of aquaponics, how to safely up-cycle wood for outside use, and how to maintain a system. There's a free option for the course if you just want to attend and participate without taking the system home at the end of the day. We've happily prepare the collect and prepare the wood if you don't have the equipment to restore wood!

      This workshop is a collaboration between BioFoundry, Sydney's first open access molecular biology lab and Biohack Space, ThreeFarm and Makers Place. The workshop is part of an initiative to get Makers and Hobbiest sharing their passions with their communities! 

      BOOK TICKETS VIA EVENTBRITE

      What is Aquaponics?

      Aquaponics is a food production system that combines hydroponics and aquaculture. By replicating how nutrients are recycled in the environment, plants grow in a substrate which is being cycled with water from a fish tank. Not only do the plants grow several times quicker, but the fish waste is being taken up by the plants in a closed loop system.

      Aquaponics is an extremely sustainable way of producing large amount of plants. Because the plant roots are bathed in nutrierts and water with little energy needed for root growth, plants grow several times faster than standard soil growth. Unlike normal hydroponics, the nutrients coming from fish waste reduce the need to use expensive and environmentally unsustainable fertilisers. 

      Why Up-Cycled?

       There is a global movement of sustainability which rejects our reliance on landfill and wastage for more environmentally sustainable methods of production. While wood is the most convenient and versatile method for building, the detrimental effects of deforestation are obvious. To many people, wooden pallets are the epitome of the problem, as you can't look anywhere without seeing decaying pallets destined for the tip. However, using pallets as building materials can be quite difficult given the wide variety of types, issues of contamination, and turning the wood into something that you'd like to have around the house.

      In the course we're using European Standard hardwood pallets which are heat treated and not treated with chemicals. Each piece of wood is cut to size, sanded a few times, cleaned, disinfected and varnished with a few layers of linseed oil to keep the moisture out & bring out the colour of the wood.

      The System

      We recognise that many people don't have all the tools or time to prepare the wood into the parts of the Aquaponic system, so we've done it for you. Here's a quick list of what's included:

      • All the wood, cut, sanded & varnished! (upcycled)
      • Growbed & Fishtank (upcycled)
      • Pump
      • Plumbing
      • Screws
      • An afternoon of help putting them together

      The only things not included is the grow media, fish, and plants as different people will have different preferences.

      If you just want to come along and learn, then jump in now and secure one of the limited "by donation" tickets. The paid ticket options provides everything from the "by donation" ticket AND you can keep this amazing upcycled, DIY home aquaponics system!
