Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) May 07, 2014
Zyrobotics, a technology start up company, announces the introduction of TabAccess™, the first device of its kind delivering easier access to both Android and iOS tablet devices for children and adults who have challenges moving their hands and arms.
More than 3 million people in the U.S. have limitations in their hands and forearms making it difficult for them to use tablet computers. The breakthrough TabAccess™ technology now gives this fast growing population the ability to interact with tablet apps in a way they haven’t been able to do before.
“Unfortunately, most applications for smartphones and tablets are not designed with accessibility in mind, especially for those with limited fine-motor control,” explains Dr. Ayanna Howard, founder and Chief Technology Officer of Zyrobotics. “Our strategic launch of TabAccess™ is both a technology game changer and life changer for so many.”
TabAccess™ enables easy use of tablets with accessible switches, sip/puff devices, grasp switches, and 4-input joysticks. With TabAccess™ apps become more accessible for adults and children with limited motor skills.
Justin, a 11 year old with cerebral palsy sums it up this way, "TabAccess makes it so much easier to play computer games with my friends and do things online. This is awesome!"
As part of the TabAccess™ launch, Zyrobotics has just released ZyroSky, one of the first switch-accessible gaming Apps for Android and also available on the Apple Store.
