iPad May Be Helpful Tool for People Struggling with Brain Injuries

Brain Injury attorney LawyerWhile heralded as the Next Big Thing in portable entertainment and computing devices, the recently released Apple iPad could have unintended, but very important value in helping people who have suffered a brain injury.”Say you have somebody who’s had a stroke, for example, and they wake up and they can’t communicate,” said Gregg Vanderheiden, director of the Trace Research and Development Center at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. “Instead of buying a 5,000-dollar communications aid you take out your iPad and download an app and — bam! — they can communicate.”

One staffer at California-based Alliance for Technology Access, a group that expands the use of technology to help people with disabilities agreed with Vanderheiden’s assessment saying, “There’s a lot of interest in the iPad.” California brain injury lawyers such as Samer Habbas agree that recent technological advances could have a very positive impact on the lives of their clients who have suffered brain injuries caused by the following:

  • Auto accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Slips and falls
  • Gunshots
