Here’s a roundup of exciting devices that have been recently added to our Assistive Device library:

Single Row Playing Cards Holder

Green 3D printed device holding various playing cards

The Single Row Playing Cards Holder is an assistive device for holding playing cards. This fully 3D-printed device aims to assist those with limited hand dexterity by giving them an alternate means of holding their playing cards. Users can place their cards into the tabletop holder which will discreetly display their cards during gameplay.

Costing less than a dollar in filament, this device is intended to be used with standard sized playing cards. Larger cards can be used but will decrease the maximum number of cards that can be held. Approximately 20 cards can be placed in the holding slot to be displayed.

There is also a Multi Row Playing Cards Holder version available.
