Mel Fuller had been working for an advertising company when she realised that her job wasn’t for her. She wanted to do something that would help people; to change the world. So, like many others who’ve had this thought, she bought a 3D printer. She didn’t know how to use it. She didn’t know how it worked. She had no choice but to teach herself. Now, Mel is using these skills to improve the lives of other people while she revolutionises the orthotics industry. AbilityMate uses the latest 3D printing technology to change lives.
