The Dash project means a lot to me. I had a family member go through a traumatic event and temporarily lose the control of his hands and mouth. Attempting to communicate with him in the hospital was near impossible not just for the family, but for the health care providers as well – even though he was mentally sharp the entire time.

We’re working on an iPad app to help people in similar conditions communicate much more effectively. We are pre-launch and rapidly prototyping and validating with health care providers and their patients.
