Almost on a daily basis, we are introduced to amazing new technology products. Some fill someone unique or specialized needs while others can change the world, such as the iPhone or iPad.
Unfortunately though, many of these devices were not designed to be used and enjoyed by those with disabilities. Consider smart devices like tablets and phones: They typically need to be held and touched to access their power and capabilities.
Fortunately, our FLOTE tablet stands can help by ergonomically positioning a tablet within reach of those unable to hold a tablet for even a short period of time. In fact many FLOTE users are indeed people with disabilities.
But what if the person is unable to touch their phone or tablet?
Luckily, there are brilliant inventors out there who have introduced a device specifically designed for this need. Called Tecla, it is described as being "for anyone who can’t easily use a smartphone, tablet or computer. This includes those with limited upper-body mobility resulting from spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, ALS, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, brain injuries, or stroke."
We think Tecla is amazing, and proof that when creative minds think outside the box, the box they create can truly change lives.
