Feels more connected to friends and family
Neil has been using Tecla for four years ever since discovering the original Tecla Shield Uno in 2012.
"I feel safer knowing I can call for help while out on my own."
On why he was first drawn to Tecla:
After extensive searching, the Tecla Shield was the only device that allowed me to use a smartphone with limited use of hands.
On new hobbies and interests since using Tecla:
I've been able to try time-lapse photography!
On his safety and privacy:
For safety, it's a huge improvement because I am now able to call for help, whether it be text email or my phone app.
On the difference in physical stress since using Tecla:
The Tecla Shield has greatly reduced the physical stress of using a smartphone. Before the Tecla, it took a great deal of effort to do the simplest task. It literally was a full-body workout that left me exhausted and frustrated. In fact, it wasn't until I discovered Tecla that I purchased a smartphone.
On communicating with his friends and family:
Since using the Tecla I feel less isolated and more connected to friends and family.
On his overall Tecla experience so far:
The Tecla opened a whole new world for me. I would totally recommend the Tecla to anyone with dexterity issues. I wrote a blog entry as well as a gift list of assistive devices that included the Tecla Shield.
