HelpCamps: A project plattform for more innovative assistant technology


Dear Sir or Madam,

Think tank HelpCamps: Companies from the aid industry, the care and assistance sector not only network with the so-called maker scene, but also bring researchers and especially people with disabilities together to develop and implement ideas. The aim of the project is to "produce assistive technology faster, more affordable and personalized". We asked project assistant Cinderella Glücklich.

Have a nice week,
