Assistive technology and three-dimensional (3D) printing offer opportunities for occupational therapy practitioners to promote occupational engagement for food-growers. 3D printing began more than 40 years ago with a goal of creating a solid object from a digital model. Recently, this technology has become more accessible due to the low-cost of personal-use printers and easy-to-use programs for designing 3D models. With this technology it is now possible for occupational therapists to design, individualize, and print assistive technology to provide benefit and promote engagement for food growers.
