Alternate Devices LLC was founded with the goal of researching and developing solutions that enable, assist, and restore function, empowering individuals to surpass limitations and reach their goals more easily.
Alternate Devices was founded following the successful development of a computer input device geared towards individuals who have difficulty using a keyboard, mouse, or touchscreen.
Many of the solutions being developed stem from the founder's own experience as a bilateral upper extremity amputee. Having gained an improvement in function through developing adaptations, he has founded Alternate Devices LLC in an effort to make these solutions available to others.
Accessible technology should be enabling: free of the complexities of computer software installation, drivers, configuration, and lengthy manuals. Setting up and getting going with AT should not be a chore.
Usability should not be sacrificed for ease of use. The answer to simplifying the user experience should not be to restrict what the tool can do.
Alternate Devices uses modern design including apps, responsive web, and machine learning to create assistive technology that has minimal barriers to use, mating convenience with accessibility through inclusive technology.
