DMD Pathfinder Trustee Mithun Soul has been progressing the work of DMD Pathfinders by researching the world of assistive technology design.
On Sunday 5th June 2016, Mithun met up with Mauricio the CEO of Komodo, the inventor of Tecla Shield, at The Cube in Birmingham and had a great afternoon and a wonderful conversation about the history and the making of Tecla Shield.
Here is what DMD Pathfinder Trustee Mithun Soul had to say:
“it was a pleasure to meet the man himself we had a great conversation, he gave me a few troubleshoot tips and advice and a sneak peak of the new 3rd generation Tecla Shield, which is yet to be launched”
The Tecla Shield gives those with limited upper body mobility access to their touchscreen devices. Tecla makes it possible to use iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, as well as computers. All are accessible via assistive buttons, switches or wheelchair driving controls. See: http://gettecla.com
It is also featured in our DMD Pathfinders assistive technology guide below
