Phones For All

Earlier this year I read about a company who had created a phone for children.  OWNFONE is the little personalised phone that connects you directly to the most important people in your life - that's it! Just press the name of the person you want to talk to.

Immediately seeing the benefits of a simplified custom phone, I contacted them suggesting their phone design could be adapted for other vulnerable groups such as the elderly, those with dementia or visual impairment.

Following up recently I am glad to see that phones for "Seniors" are now available.  The design can be customised to include:

  • Phones in a variety of colours
  • Name buttons instead or numbers 
  • Pictures instead of names or numbers
  • A simplified layout

Soon to Come

The other suggestion of phones for those with visual impairment can also be created.  This development is being extended further with phones preprinted with BRAILLE to come soon.

So if you think you or someone close to you may benefit from a simple, personal phone this company are worth considering.

We will keep you up to date with other useful developments soon.
