Andre

Andre was a client of ours for over two years. We introduced him to using an iPad with a sip and puff switch and he picked it up amazingly fast. Last fall (2017) Andre was using an iPad for most of his social media activities and a Windows Surface to place phone calls. To control both systems using a single sip and puff switch, Andre used BlueSwitch. In fact, he was the first person to use this technology outside of InvoTek. His ability to debug problems and provide user feedback was outstanding.

We were so impressed by him that we created a video of him using the system. We completed the video in December of 2017 and Andre was so proud of it. One day in January of 2018 Andre didn't feel well. He asked to go to the hospital and said goodbye to staff at his nursing home. He died shortly thereafter.

Andre was full of life. He had a contagious laugh and a great sense of humor. You'll experience both if you watch the video below. Thanks to Be X for letting us link to this video from their YouTube channel. Andre, we miss you.
