Device Details

Overview

The Drum Stick Holder is an assistive device designed to allow persons with physical disabilities to access percussion instruments that require a drum stick. To overcome the barrier to accessibility, the drumstick holder attaches to the wrist and is tightened via a velcro strap. The drum stick then fits securely into the slot on the cuff.

Usage

To attach the device, the end user places the cuff over their wrist and tightens the velcro strap. With the device attached, the end-user places a drum stick into the slot on the device.

Build Instructions

Building the Drum Stick Holder is easy. The cuff can be 3D printed from the downloadable file above. Then attach a length of velcro to the cuff as shown in the images to allow to fix the cuff to the user.
