The innovator who explores the unexplored

Peter Barr from London is developing Enayball: a new visual arts tool that enables anyone with a physical disability, even the most highly paralysed, to draw, paint or create independently. Enayball can be attached to a wheelchair or used on a tabletop. The wheelchair application is at floor level and paints a line in synchronicity with users’ remote controlled movements. The tabletop application is for people with limited grip or who experience involuntary movements, such as Cerebral Palsy, and struggle to hold a pen or paintbrush.

“The global disabled assistive devices market was valued at $14 billion in 2015 and is expected to surpass $26 billion by 2024,” says the 25-year-old. “I have identified a gap in the market for tools designed for people with disabilities that are easy-to-use at home. Enayball gives users a sense of freedom from the challenges of everyday life.”

I strongly believe that art is a human right and should be accessible to everyone.
