Who is Tecla For?

Tecla is for anyone who can’t easily use a smartphone, tablet or computer. This includes those with limited upper-body mobility resulting from spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, ALS, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, brain injuries, or stroke.

How does Tecla work?

Tecla allows an individual to interact with their iOS and Android devices or computers -- hands-free. This includes the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android smartphones and tablets. It works with all assistive switches on the market including buttons, sip-and-puff controllers, head arrays, joysticks and the driving controls of a wheelchair.

What does this mean for me?

This means you can use Tecla and your smart device literally anywhere you are. Use it from your wheelchair during the day, or from your bed at night. Tecla moves with you. Unlike other assistive devices that aren't portable, Tecla adapts to where you are.

Wheelchair or switch control

Using an Environmental Control Unit, wheelchair users can switch anytime between driving their chair to controlling their smart device. Or, switch users can connect up to six switches to control their device. Tecla comes with multiple modes to best optimize the switch experience, depending on preference or physical hand mobility. And Tecla is compatible with single or dual switches ranging from light touch buttons to sip-and-puff switches.
