Here at GRiP, the recipients are at the center of what we do. Every year, we attend Hand Camp, a weekend-long gathering of kids and teens with upper-limb differences, and provide activities for everyone attending. We also use it as an opportunity to deliver devices to people who ordered them. In addition to this, we take online orders from all over the country and send them out on a rolling basis. We also participate in community outreach events such as Adaptathon and the ATIA conference. Every one of our 3D-printed devices is delivered free of charge and our adaptive video game controllers are offered at retail price or lower, which is why donations are so important to our ongoing operations.
Every device that we build is designed, fitted, and printed specifically for each individual recipient by a team of University of Florida students who spend a semester preparing the devices.
Our recipients live all across the world and have interests ranging from playing the Cello, to playing Basketball, Gaming, and everything in between. It is our goal to help these children and teens to pursue their goals and become more confident in their own lives.
