Towards 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games, our 3D fab project is focusing on the engineering support through the equipment design and development for the para-athletes. Through this project, we are encouraging them to gain 3D fabrication technology by themselves for their own equipment/tools development. This can be a new social contact for the para athletes and also the potential for the disabled person’s employment opportunity.
