Helping those with limited mobility go mobile

Komodo OpenLab has released a new device that lets severely paralysed people operate Android and iOS tablets and smartphones, as well as other devices, using standard accessibility tools such as sip and puff controllers, buttons, and switches. The new Tecla-e provides wireless connectivity with the devices it controls, which can also include lights, powered doors, and smart television remotes.

Up to eight devices can be connected to a single Tecla-e and anything that can interact with IFTTT can be programmed and activated in smart ways whenever they’re on the same WiFi network.

The device can be monitored remotely, including providing its location, movement, and the ambient air temperature, so that while a person goes out independently, caretakers can still keep a vigilant eye. This is done via iOS and Android apps provided with the Tecla-e that are used to setup the device, connect it to other devices, and link it to caretakers.
