Project was fabricated for a wheelchair user who cooks but has difficulty seeing inside her pots and pans, which is crucial to know when water is boiling, or noodles are done. This angled mirror will be mounted to the wall behind the stove, containing a ball and socket joint at the neck of the two attachments, allowing the mirror to be adjusted to either side of the burners. The material used is Polyethylene terephthalate glycol (PET-G) allowing the material to withstand temperatures up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. The Mirror itself is an acrylic sheet that is fog resistant allowing for a safer solution to glass.
This project was also utilized in IATP’s Tech Kitchen to assist individuals as needed when learning to cook on the stove using assistive technology.
