Live up to your potential
Hippo Ability is proud to partner with the Tyler Schrenk Foundation to improve access to the latest wearable technology and enhance the quality of life for people of all abilities.
Our Hippo Ability™ platform includes hands-free, voice-activated, wearable computers and Smart Glasses allowing people with disabilities and their caregivers to communicate and videoconference in real time with caregivers, healthcare providers and specialists, providing a unique “through the eyes of the user” perspective.
Hippo’s voice activated, hands-free headsets give caregivers a ”through the eyes of the user” experience for multiple use cases.
Enables healthcare providers to direct caregivers and orient the patient for remote examinations and therapy with an “as if you were there” experience.
Real-time or recorded tutorials give people with disability a first-hand view for practical skills learning and equipment troubleshooting.
February 12, 2012 will be a day that I will never forget. Yes, I sustained a spinal cord injury leaving me paralyzed from the neck down and ventilator dependent, but the biggest change in my life going forward was not my ability to move.
Before my spinal cord injury, all my time and energy went into my physical appearance or athletic achievement. My identity – or at least the way I viewed myself – was entirely physical. My story is not about my spinal cord injury – it is about the opportunity I have been given to use that time and energy I thought I had lost and re-channel it into my mind. From living in my dad’s living room, technology has enabled me to live and work independently. In addition to launching my nonprofit foundation, the Tyler Schrenk Foundation, I am now sharing my knowledge about the emerging technology and support available to others in my situation to them become independent like myself. That was the genesis of Hippo Ability.
