Communication Tool for Nonverbal Users Invented by Two InventHelp® Clients (RDC-2033)

Share Article

Two Carolina-based InventHelp clients have invented the Simple Touch, which is being submitted to companies for review.

Ordering lunch may seem like a simple exchange for most of us, but it can be a real challenge for those with disabilities affecting their communication skills. However, now thanks to two inventors, one from Winterville, N.C., and the other from Greenville, S.C., there is communication help available for people who cannot speak.

They developed Simple Touch to allow those with speech limitations to communicate effectively. It, therefore, provides them with independence they would not otherwise have. At the same time, it eliminates the frustration associated with not being understood. Another advantage is that it is adaptable for multi-lingual content and translation capabilities. Besides that, it is compact, lightweight and portable. It is particularly ideal for hospital patients and school students. In addition, it is convenient, easy to use and affordably priced.

The inventors’ personal observation inspired the idea. “We have watched individuals with communication disabilities experience the frustration of not being understood when they try to order food at restaurants or express their needs in other situations,” one of them said.

The original design was submitted to the Durham office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
