TOM Melbourne: Regional Makeathon

The TOM: Melbourne Makeathon is traditionally a weekend marathon of making, with some preparatory online sessions in advance.We work with people with disability who have a specific need (‘Need-Knowers’) and connect them with a diverse group of professionals and tertiary students in areas relating to healthcare, engineering, design, as well as hobbyists and problem solvers (‘Makers’).

Together, teams co-design and build custom prototypes that solve a complex problem and improve the everyday life of the Need-Knower. Recent prototypes include robotic arms, powered crutches, wheelchair wheel cleaners, and bespoke exercise machines. The intellectual property for every product is then shared through open-source digital files on the TOM Global website, so others can replicate or iterate it.
