What we aim to solve

For individuals unable to regularly operate a hand-held push-button remote, daily life is inhibited and a caregiver must perform these functions. Through volunteer work with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, we met families living with neuromuscular disease. Recognizing both a lack of independence for the family member impacted by disease and the constant responsibility on the caregiver, we felt called to make a difference. In 2017 when we initially began our work, there was a huge unmet need from the adjustable bed manufacturers, so we developed a solution. We continue to make individual custom solutions to allow voice control of beds; while also serving as an advocate to industry to develop a (scalable) solution.

Context notes

Metric identifies real time impact to individuals served, monitored via cloud service requests. Without voice activated controller, a caregiver would need to make these adjustments manually.

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Improve daily life for individuals with limited mobility through use of technology. Inspire manufacturers to recognize this unmet need and develop solutions.

Provide voice-activated solutions for those unable to regularly operate a hand-held push button remote. Meet annually with the adjustable bed manufacturers to share knowledge and communicate the unmet need.

The combination of strengths and knowledge of the 3 officers/directors bring technical expertise, software expertise and business acumen. These skills, coupled with the commitment to serve others makes us successful.

Use of web services through Amazon/Google show us in real time the frequency of commands on our controllers.

We have over 40 active users on a daily basis. Several individuals post videos of the life-changing impact. Google did a documentary of the impact with nearly 1 million views. Linak released a podcast in 2020. In 2020, we added offerings to include voice-activated recliner controllers and nurse call buttons. Adjustable bed manufacturers have started to offer voice activated solutions commercially, so when an individual needs a new bed, we can direct them to a solution.
