Introducing the new tecla-e™!

Introducing the new tecla-e™!

tecla-e is the newest version of tecla. The cloud-connected assistive device provides users with control of their smart-devices and environment. 

tecla-e is for anyone who cannot easily use a smartphone, tablet computer or household technology independently. This includes those with limited upper-body mobility resulting from spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, ALS, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, brain injuries, or stroke.

Whether you want to send and receive emails or text messages, browse the web, watch videos, launch and use your favourite apps, read a book, change the TV channel, adjust the room's temperature or make a phone call -- tecla-e provides you with hands-free access to do it.

  • Compatibility with industry standard switches and wheelchair outputs 
  • Companion apps for iOS and Android (for set-up, on-screen remote and device monitoring)

tecla-e connects with Bluetooth-enabled smartphones, tablets, and computers as well as smart home devices. Caregivers and family members can even monitor the user with sensors built into tecla-e which record and track room temperature, movement and location.

tecla-e users can control their phone, tablet or computer with assistive devices such as:

  • adaptive switches (light touch buttons, sip-and-puff or blinking switches, etc)
  • driving controls of power wheelchairs (via an Environmental Control Unit or Input Output Module)

tecla-e is compatible with:

  • iOS devices with Switch Control (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch)
  • Android devices with Switch Access
  • Samsung devices with Universal Switch
