Independence through technology
The world has changed around us. From video chats and conference calls, to online shopping and food delivery – technology has become essential to day-to-day living.
- What if you have limited physical mobility – due to a disability or any limiting physical condition – and you cannot use a traditional keyboard, mouse or other input device?
- How do you use a computer, cell phone or tablet?
- Can you turn on or off your lights or television without assistance?
- Would you like to learn how to do your banking or shopping online?
Inglis Assistive Tech Solutions (IATS) is able to help. For more than three decades, Inglis has been using assistive technology (AT) to help individuals with mobility impairments and other disabilities gain greater independence though technology.
