TWISTR is a parametric walking stick generated through a scan performed by a Kinect Cam, designed and made by Polifactory in collaboration with Angelo De Iesi, Andrea Ascani, Ewoud Westerduin, Aurélie Marie Glaser. This project developed a digital design and manufacturing method to materialize personal parametric sticks - with kinect and grasshopper - with a 3D printed structure. Superforma participated in the prototyping of TWISTR, printing the different parts of the stick.

Twistr is part of the Polifactory project NEXT STEPS, an experimental initiative that stimulates designers, makers and patients as innovative users to co-design and prototype a collection of open source walking aids that can be distributed through digital platforms and materialized in Fab Labs.
