InvoTek does a lot of work with Be Extraordinary, a non-profit that helps people with disabilities achieve their life goals. Our technical team modified some cool bicycling gloves so our youngest client could hold a pencil (left picture) in each glove and two-finger type his name. We also modified a table frame so that he could take his shirt off (middle pics) and then dive into the shirt to put it back on (right)! Simple solutions that make a big difference!
We're testing a new Android app! LaserChat Pro will have some new features that turn LaserChat into a very nice talking word prediction system. Both apps will be available in the Google Play store. They are free and they work great with our Bluetooth laser-controlled keyboard.

InvoTek is very pleased to announce that we have received a $175,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health to create a handcycle that is accessible to people who do not have grip control. Physical activity may improve the health and quality of life of people with spinal cord injury and disease (SCI/D) by providing a fun way to exercise. Lack of access to fun recreational equipment is one of the primary barriers to participating in health-enhancing fitness activities for people with SCI/D. Our news release is available here.
