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
Visit GetTecla.com to learn more about tecla-e. The device will begin shipping next month!
