Lifetool gemeinnützige GmbH
LIFEtool is a non-profit company offering, as the name suggests, “tools for life” to people with special needs and seniors. The tools in question are computer-aided tools that enable them to access communication technologies and the world of computers including the internet and give them effective help with games, learning, work and in their everyday lives. The consultants at LIFEtool constantly monitor the large range of assistive technologies on the market, looking for the latest developments which they then test with the target groups at the counselling centres and pass on their expertise in workshops and at events. Counselling is free and not geared towards any particular brands or manufacturers. Besides their counselling, the interdisciplinary LIFEtool team work with teachers, psychologists, therapists and engineers on developing their own software applications and alternative computer accessibility tools such as the IntegraMouse Plus, a winner of several international awards. In addition, LIFEtool cooperates with research partners from universities on current projects to enable people with special needs or advanced in years to have access to the latest assistive technologies.
