Mac World, San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 14, 2008
FrogPad, Inc. announces the expansion of the Coalition Veterans Challenge. We asked the question, "What can we the people do for those who have been sent to the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and have returned disabled".
We must stand in this question and recognize that there are no politics in a disabled soldier. As the weaponry becomes more sophisticated, the injury becomes more frightful and devastating. These are injuries that will affect the rest of the life of the young soldier. The estimates are that there are over 10,000 Vets returning from these wars without the use of a hand or arm.
FrogPad can do something that the big industrial and military complexes have not offered. FrogPad, Inc. begins the IOOO FrogPad Program . FrogPad products and services that make a difference to each US and Coalition veteran that requires one because of loss of a hand. FrogPad is a simple one-handed keyboard, which can have significant impact on a veteran staying integrated in the IT workplace. This is our effort to demonstrate that even a small Hispanic Woman Enterprise can bridge the gap in International relations.
Linda Marroquin, CEO of FrogPad, boldly challenged all US and International companies that have profited from these wars, "Contribute the same percentage of your company that FrogPad has contributed and make a difference to the disabled vet". We wait to see who steps up to this challenge.
To further support FrogPad's involvement with the Veterans population, globally many of FrogPad's current customers have offered to train the Vets.
Pricing and Global Availability
The FrogPad, priced at $129 US. The FrogPad is available today in both left handed and right handed versions via overnight shipping. To order from anywhere in the world, go to http://www.frogpad.com or call (US) 1.713.529.4474.
FrogPad has been overwhelmed with the interest in its one-handed keyboard. Customers are learning to use their left hand to type so they can multi-task and solely use their right hand to move the mouse or draw on a drawing tablet.
The FrogPad keyboard is the only one-handed, ergonomic keyboard that is 1/5th the size of a traditional keyboard, yet easier to use because it is designed around the 15 most-frequently-used letters in the Roman alphabet. Unlike a traditional QWERTY layout, whose design was derived from the limitations of 19th Century typewriter technology, the FrogPad offers a logical key layout and design that encourages correct ergonomic posture. After an average of eight hours of training and practice, most FrogPad users can achieve input rates of the standard 40 words per minute, as compared to the average of 10-20 words per minute by the fastest thumb typists. Additionally, the FrogPad can be ordered with Bluetooth compatibility for the mobile professional on the go.
