Row-Ro is a is a custom made brace designed for Rosina, a girl suffering from incomplete tetraplegia, which makes it difficult to grip objects, limiting access to rowing. The object consists of a partially open structure in neoprene and rigid PLA plaques, 3D printed, which offer support for the hand and wrist. The closure system includes two orthogonal velcro strips: the first, which turns around the wrist, allows the closure of the brace, while the second offers the possibility of closing the fingers around an object. Row-Ro is a project of the Health&Care Summer School, organized by the Fab Lab OpenDot within the "Distributed Design Market Platform".
