Quote: "TabAccess makes it so much easier to play computer games with my friends and do things online. This is awesome!"

Zyrobotics, a technology start up company, announces the introduction of TabAccess, the first device of its kind delivering easier access to both Android and iOS tablet devices for children and adults who have challenges moving their hands and arms.

More than 3 million people in the U.S. have limitations in their hands and forearms making it difficult for them to use tablet computers.

The breakthrough TabAccess technology now gives this fast growing population the ability to interact with tablet apps in a way they haven't been able to do before.

"Unfortunately, most applications for smartphones and tablets are not designed with accessibility in mind, especially for people with motor disabilities," explains Dr. Ayanna Howard, founder and Chief Technology Officer of Zyrobotics. "Our strategic launch of TabAccess is both a technology game changer and life changer for so many."
