Winners 2021

The winners of the sixth edition of Make to Care, the Sanofi contest that encourages, rewards and supports innovative solutions that challenge disability were Camera Libera Tutti from the FabLab of Parma, in collaboration with Hackability, and SwimAble from E-nable Italia (the Italian association for children and families with agenesis, amputation and limb malformations) and Energy Family Project.

  • Camera Libera Tutti is a project that stems from the need to overcome the lack of sufficiently inclusive tourist facilities. For this reason, a design team worked on the development of furniture solutions, devices and systems to make the accommodation facilities more accessible for people with disabilities yet at the same time have an attractive design that also improves the facilities aesthetically. The result was the design of a Welcome Kit made up of ten indispensable items which, although apparently simple, significantly increase the quality of the stay, breaking down the differences between accommodation reserved for disabled people and that for tourists without a disability.
  • SwimAble is an upper limb aid for children who are starting out in water sports and have an upper limb amputation below the elbow (transradial amputation). Its main objective is to encourage motor activities in water aimed at preserving residual muscle functions. The designed aid meets the physical and engineering characteristics necessary for buoyancy, but is fully integrated into the user’s outfit. In fact, it looks like a one-shoulder piece that fits perfectly into the costume, also thanks to the choice of colours and material. SwimAble is in fact made of Lycra, a fibre usually used in the manufacture of common swimming costumes. Easily worn by the child itself, this aid becomes part of normal swimming pool clothing.

COSA È MAKER FAIRE

Maker Faire Rome è un evento che facilita e racconta l’innovazione tecnologica connettendo le persone e le idee. Una piattaforma in grado di coinvolgere gli appassionati di innovazione in percorsi di co-progettazione, apprendimento, formazione e matchmaking. La manifestazione vuole diffondere la cultura dell’Open Innovation consentendo al sistema produttivo di ricorrere a idee, soluzioni, strumenti e competenze tecnologiche che arrivano dall’esterno e dal basso, attraverso una connessione virtuosa tra innovatori, creativi, startup, aziende, studenti, università e istituti di ricerca. Maker Faire Rome è il luogo in cui i protagonisti dell’innovazione europea si incontrano, si confrontano, scoprono le novità e fanno affari.
