With 1.1 Billion people living with disabilities around the world, there are an astronomical number of neglected challenges hindering independence and inclusion. Unfortunately, the market is failing and valuable solutions are never developed or do not reach users at affordable prices.

Local TOM Communities organize Makeathons and Developer Groups, bringing together Makers, engineers, designers, innovators, problem solvers and Need-Knowers (people with a deep understanding of specific disability challenge) to develop solutions for everyday challenges.

Community members then document the solutions on the Open Makers Market, making the designs available and free for users around the globe.

In Pittsburgh we live in a city on the cutting edge of technology.
