iPad your pad

Environmental control has always been a huge issue for people with mobility disabilities; if you can’t control the TV from afar, for example, you may be stuck watching bad reruns long after your program of interest has ended. Ability to integrate environmental control for multiple devices into a single, easy-to-control unit is always good. If that unit is a widely available and affordable mainstream device such as an iPhone or iPad, so much the better.

    I am looking for an environmental control for the iPad. It seems your company has been listed on several Internet sites. Do you sell such a product and how much does it cost.

    Thanks for your note. We don’t sell any equipment. However, I did find this reference to an iPad app that does some environmental control functions:
