Tens of millions of people worldwide are living with SCI, stroke, neurological disorders & a wide variety of other conditions which result in limited control over their fingers & hands, making it difficult to perform everyday actions, and locking them out of the digital world. Tongo can change their lives.
Before coming out of stealth mode, Tongo was funded by the Israeli Innovation Authority, supported by Microsoft, IBM, ALYN & Hadassah Hospital, won awards from Prize 4 Life ALS Foundation & the MedTech Raanana Accelerator - then finally unveiled at the Google HQ in both NYC & Mountain View.
Pilots, user tests & fundraising are currently underway, as we work toward bringing this new way of interaction to those who need it.
