Arnoldware launches a touchscreen stylus for the motion disabled on Indiegogo...

Arnoldware Applications, LLC., is proud to launch its long-awaited touchscreen stylus for motion disabilities such as Parkinson's Disease, Essential Tremor, and others, on the community-driven platform Indiegogo.

Arnoldware seeks to bring its novel hardware and software solution to enable motion disabled users to operate touchscreen devices.

The Access StylusTM is the first of its kind, using a custom hardware and software approach to solve the frustrating experience that millions of motion disabled encounter every day which hampers their ability to use a touchscreen.

About This Image: Touchscreen Access Stylus for motion disabilities such as Parkinson's Disease, Essential Tremor, and other disabilities.
"If our product succeeds," CTO Mark Arnold says, "it could help millions of people who have been cut off from the smartphone revolution."

The Access Stylus allows a motion-disabled user to select/activate apps; enter and select text; dial phone numbers; scroll, magnify and rotate the view; manipulate images and do anything that a non-disabled user can do on a touchscreen.

Arnoldware's specialized software appears as a translucent layer on top of the underlying operating system, preventing inadvertent gestures from causing unintended and unwanted actions, allowing users to harness the power and independence that touchscreen devices provide.

The Access Stylus does not require the precise and difficult timing that is common among existing accessibility products.

Other accessibility options such voice recognition exposes those with disabilities in public settings (making them potentially vulnerable to privacy loss and identity theft), the Access Stylus with its companion software does not require users to speak.

Purchasers of the Access Stylus will have the option to donate their purchase to a person with motion disabilities and 10% of sales will be donated to partnering motion disabilities organizations.

Starting today, anyone can back the Access Stylus on Indiegogo.

Arnoldware

Arnoldware is located in in Laramie, Wyoming. Arnoldware's goal is to develop and commercialize a new, innovative accessory that enables motion-disabled users to easily and accurately operate touchscreen devices such as smart phones and tablets.

Arnoldware's efforts have enabled it to successfully prove the viability of its accessibility solution and reach a point where Arnoldware's Access Stylus will shortly be ready to enter production. Visit arnoldware.com for more details.
