(Tetra's database of assistive devices*)
Over the years our amazing Tetra volunteers have created thousands of assistive devices and gadgets that have helped with overcoming barriers in physical or environmental spaces. We want to share this work and make it easier for anyone anywhere in the world to be able to adopt one of the many solutions that have already made a difference in someone’s life.

* This database lists something around 10 per cent of Tetra projects from over the years, so is not complete in any way. However, we hope it gives an overview of what we do, and can help people gain information about what might be possible for them.
