Robert Oxford ECU
autonoME Environmental Control Provides Disabled Veteran New Lease on Independence

Robert Oxford, a quadriplegic, finds independence through his autonoME environmental control unit (ECU). The autonoME allows Robert to manage and completely control his bed, lights, front door and even his satellite television box. He can also surf the Internet, send e-mail and play computer games. Robert’s wife Carol finds the autonoME offers her benefits as well. For instance, if Carol is working on a project and Robert wants to watch television, he can direct his wheelchair to the living room, turn on the television, adjust the volume and change the channels without needing her assistance.

autonoME Making A Difference At The Oklahoma Children's Center

Accessibility Services Vice President, Brice Green, consulted with the facilities manager at The Children’s Center and customized the autonoME to meet the hospital’s specifications. Heather Giordano M.S., CCC-SLP, Product Rep. and ASI’s in-house national certified speech and language pathologist provided on-site consultation on customizing the augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) specifically for their patients.

“Knowing that a child who is unable to communicate can now express their thoughts and feelings makes what we do so worthwhile,” explains Green, “And, giving children with disabilities the ability to perform tasks that most people take for granted – such as changing channels on the television or turning on the lights – makes a tremendous difference in the lives of these children and their families. We are honored to be part of the ‘miracles’ that The Children’s Center make happen every day.”

Meet a Beautiful Couple
Eric has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). He dreams of having a covered outdoor patio to enjoy what precious time he has left. Constructing a patio is quite costly, so Robert put some of his most prized possessions up for auction to raise money for Eric’s patio. Our Program Director, Lisa Swiger, was deeply touched by this story about Eric and his friend Robert. Although the money needed to build Eric’s patio was raised as a result of the news story, Lisa wanted to do more.

Lisa, along with ASI technician John Sanders, traveled to their Tampa residence to install an environmental control unit (ECU) for Eric. The ECU – equipped with eyegaze technology so he can control the device with his eyes – will not only assist him with communicating, but Eric will now be able to turn on lights, surf the Internet and even control his television on his own.

With much thanks and gratitude to both Lisa and Brice at ASI for making it possible for Eric to have a fully functional device such as the ECU.

Eighty-four year old Alfred Combee had quite an active life. The former fire investigator was also an avid wildlife photographer. He and his wife Anna loved to mountain bike together. Three years ago, Alfred found out he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. His disease progressed quickly. He has already lost his speech and his ability to write, which left him unable to communicate.

“We knew how important it was for Alfred to be able to speak to Anna,” says Maggie Thompson, President of ASI, “We sent our technical team to Alfred’s home multiple times and developed a solution which now allows him to communicate with Anna. We were determined to do whatever it took to make one of his final wishes come true.”
