Abstract

This research subject is focused on the development of Low-Cost Assistive Technology, in Additive Manufacturing, for people with physical disabilities, aiming to improve the safety and health conditions at work. The objective of the study was to analyze assistive material for work activities and orthoses developed by the Group of Addictive and Tooling Manufacturing - NUFER. The possibility of implanting an Additive Manufacturing Laboratory is also evaluated, establishing a partnership between the Federal Technological University of Paraná and civil society, aiming to include people with disabilities in the work environment. This study is performed in the applied research field and it has as product creation methodology the proposal of NUFER of UTFPR - Brazil. The data indicates the social relevance of such a project, since it helps to promote inclusion in the work environment, providing more safety, health and productivity.
