Tecla: Accessing Smartphones and Tablets Hands-Free


Since there are people who find it difficult to use a touchscreen device because of their limited upper-body mobility, Tecla might be the solution they’ve been waiting for.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) patients (and also ALS, muscular dystrophy and other spinal cord injuries patients) are now able to easily access their touchscreen smartphones to call or receive calls, text messaging, read ebooks, surf the web, and much more. All hands-free!

Tecla connects to industry-standard switches or the driving controls of a wheelchair.

Recently, researchers found a new MRI method with potential to map MS progression and guide treatment.
