Peace of mind and inclusion: assistive smartphone accessory

The EziSmart solution is about peace of mind for users and carers. It brings inclusion without stigmatisation. Loneliness, isolation and anxiety of living alone create stress with many consequential negative effects. To combat that face to face interaction is best. In its absence, the smartphone is a good inclusive surrogate. In addition, smartphones bring huge benefits with the many social and welfare apps. The EziSmart App is for people who are daunted by smartphone complexities. It simplifies the smartphone, provides safety and security. It gives a much needed freedom of choice. It is a tool to ease migration from feature phones to smartphones. The Ezi-PAD is for people who have lost the ability to use the ubiquitous screen keyboard. It is an assistive tool for people with large fingers, poor motor function and people with vision impairment. Innovative and unique. There is much more, come see how we do it.
