Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look
at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to
help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or
other special needs!
For individuals with limited upper-body mobility,
independently operating a smartphone, tablet, or other household
technology can be hard if not impossible. There is a new
version of the Tecla shield called "tecla-e" that is a
cloud-connected assistive product that allows users to
independently control their smart devices.
Tecla-e itself is a light-touch button switch that can be used
to control up to 8 Bluetooth devices.
Features of tecla-e include:
- Multiple device control
- Built-in light touch button switch
- Internet-enabled appliance control
- The ability for users to share their location, activity and
surrounding environment conditions around them with family and
caregivers via the Tecla app for iOS or Android
- And much more
more about tecla-e. The device will begin shipping next
