Carl has a cervical spinal cord injury and has been waiting for a long time to control his environment when he is in bed. He is a very active person and on a sunny day there is no telling where you might find him! But when he was in bed, he was stuck. Carl now controls his TV, surfs the web using speech recognition and a cool new technology called Glassouse, and InvoTek provided an accessible phone and texting software. Carl is now connected while in bed. Below is a picture of his system. The wires look a little overwhelming, but Carl and his caregivers have no trouble setting things up for him each day.
