The technological growth in gadgets, which are linked to medical diagnosis and therapeutics, has resulted in some mesmerizing innovation and has eased the complexities of health monitoring.
A Canada-based Komodo OpenLab introduced a new gadget that allows intensely paralyzed individuals to operate devices that are connected to the Internet and are functional on Android and iOS devices such as smartphones and tablets. Tecla-e Wireless can also help the person to control the buttons, sip and puff controllers, and switches that are mounted on the high-tech wheelchair.
The device has the efficiency to get hooked up with eight devices that can be communicated and operated with IFTTT and can be programmed and activated in various ways as per the requirement, but on the same network. The devices such as powered doors, smart TVs and remotes, and lights that are connected through a wireless medium can also be controlled with Tecla-e device.
Tecla-e device also efficiently reduces the efforts of the caretakers as it can be monitored remotely and from any location. Caretakers can readily monitor the actions of the patient and control the settings of the connected devices. The overall functioning can be done through Android and iOS-based app that is presented along with Tecla-e device.
Tecla-e is fully cloud-connected and assistive gadget that enables the limited mobility patient to control its environment and connected devices. It has been said that reliable and useful things always come in small packages. This device with loads of upgraded features is the example for the same. The device is the result of the widespread association with Tecla users.
Mauricio Meza, CEO and co-founder of Komodo OpenLab, said, “The company has always been emphasizing on improvement and enhancement, and customers’ feedback play a crucial role in our development”.
Tecla-e can be used by those who are going through limited upper-body mobility due to spinal cord injuries, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, brain injuries, stroke, or multiple sclerosis. It lets the user to independently control the devices and eases the monitoring procedure for the caretakers.
Looking at the overall functionalities of the Tecla-e, Komodo OpenLab has probably diminished the barriers for the paralyzed patients in terms of basic task accessibility and staying connected with the people around them.
