Tecla's mission is to empower individuals with disabilities by providing equal access to technology. Our assistive technologies help individuals with mobility impairments access off-the-shelf smart devices that was previously inaccessible due to the barriers of using touch-based interfaces.
tecla-e is the latest generation of devices that provides hands-free access to multiple smart devices for individuals with severe upper-body impairments. Users can send and receive emails and text messages, browse the web, watch videos, launch and use apps, read books, change the TV channel or turn the heat up, make phone calls at any time using accessibility switches or the driving control of their wheelchairs they are familiar with. This device includes the ability to connect with smart home technology to provide users with more independence at home and access to the potential of the Internet of Things (IoT).
