The Palm-PC Gateway

Project Overview

The Technology Accessibility Group Group proposes to develop an accessible Palm PC prototype to demonstrate the viability of using this new computer technology for assistive applications.

Palm PCs provide most of the sophisticated computing and communications features of larger desktop PCs. By tailoring these features to meet the needs of people with SCI, Palm devices can be configured as basic wheelchair mounted task-specific controllers or scaled up accordingly to serve as mobile “gateways” for more advanced home networked systems incorporating a wide range of telecom and environmental control functions.
