Lingraphica has introduced the iPad app component of TalkPath Therapy, its integrated cloud-based speech therapy solution for the millions of adults with aphasia, a speech disorder that affects the ability to speak, write or comprehend language, and the clinicians who work with them to improve language skills. The company, which has researched and produced rehabilitative speech-generating devices and assistive technology for adults with aphasia since 1990, is offering the subscription-based solution, available on the iPad and the Web, for free during its extended trial period.
TalkPath Therapy for the iPad has been named best mobile commerce app in the 2014 New Jersey Technology Council’s Mobile Apps Forum competition, which fielded entries from companies based in multiple states and several countries.
With one account users can access more than 4,600 scientifically designed speech therapy exercises online or offline from the iPad and online from a Web browser.
TalkPath Therapy was designed under the guidance of a team of speech-language pathologists and the company conducted significant usability testing with members of its Lingraphica Aphasia Users’ Group – each of whom is working to rebuild speech lost because of stroke. The company’s own research shows that with continued practice using TalkPath Therapy’s proprietary icons and content, users can recover language lost to due to a stroke or other brain injury.
“TalkPath Therapy is a truly mobile speech therapy solution that meets the needs of individuals with aphasia and their clinicians,” says Andrew Gomory, chief executive officer of Lingraphica. “We used our three decades of experience to transform our offerings into an even more meaningful and effective rehabilitative solution.”
Clinicians using TalkPath Therapy have access to extensive reporting features including task-based reports and detailed activity reports. These features make it easy to show improvement and adjust plans in real time. No other solution on the market allows for this functionality on multiple platforms.
