Cerebral Palsy Tool Assistant
This project was in the list of HackadayPrize2020 entries, but it stood out to me. For starters, it is a tool for helping children express themselves. Secondly, it was developed by teachers, probably on their personal budget. Thirdly, they proved it worked because they're working with kids who need this sort of tool.

The tool is a strap across the wrist that lets people with cerebral palsy manipulate an instrument, like a pen, pencil, and even paintbrushes. Their hackaday.io page showed some artwork from a student, which I used as borders around the top image. My editor added a close-up of someone wearing a copy.
