As many of our friends know, InvoTek has been a strong supporter of a new 501c3 non-profit named Be Extraordinary™ (Be X). As part of the growing process, Be X has moved to its own website! The new site is www.be-x.org. If you are familiar with the InvoTek site, the Be X site is organized similarly and should be easy to use. If you have comments or suggestions, please let us know using the "Contact Us" page on either site.
We will continue to feature Be X client stories on this site and share blogs between the sites. That said, The new Be X site will provide more timely information on the journey of our clients and all donations will be handled there. This is just one more step in our efforts to support the people who need assistive technology to meet their life goals.
Welcome to InvoTek, where technology opens the door to independence, communication, and quality of life for people with severe disabilities.
Our expertise lies in two areas – helping people like George and Martin control computers when they can’t use their hands, and improving communication for people who find it challenging to use their natural speech.
Here's what InvoTek can do for you:
At InvoTek, our priority is to help every client obtain the tools and services needed to improve quality of life. We have innovative programs to help people access the products and the services so they can do extraordinary things, even if they seem ordinary. Please contact us -- we’ll do our best to help you.
Please be our Facebook friend (on right) or give us your email address so that we can update you once a month. We won't share your address with anyone else.
Tom was recently interviewed at the Arkansas Science and Technology Authority by Chris Snider (ASTA). The video above is a nice description of what InvoTek is all about -- in one minute!
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
Over the past couple of months I've had the opportunity to experience the power of sports for people with disabilities. An impressive ad from the 2012 London Paralympics really illustrates this. I was fortunate to experience similar excitement at the Miami Marathon in January as I watched 70 athletes with disabilities, including our own Scott Porter, race. You can read more about my experience on our blog. In any case, this is important stuff, and InvoTek is going to start working to help the severely disabled participate in sports. Wish us luck as we apply compassion driven innovation to this new field.
