Liam Dwyer was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in 2005.
Previously employed as a building manager -- as well as being an avid motorcyclist, scuba diver and gym user - the limitations Liam faced were great. In addition, his ability to communicate using his own voice had begun to fade.
A self-confessed practitioner of thorough research -- not one to 'do things by halves', Liam set to acquiring an AAC [Augmentative and Alternative Communication] solution to help deal with his speech problems. Having explored several available options, Liam had yet to find a device that worked for him -- meeting his needs in terms of suitability and ease of access.
Then, Liam discovered Predictable.
Using Predictable on his Android tablet, Liam is now able to communicate with family and friends in the manner he wants to; being able to express his thoughts and feelings clearly and effectively. As founder of disabled4disabled.co.uk, and a keen advocate for raising awareness for impairments such as MND, Liam often has the chance to give speeches concerning his own experiences and his fundraising contributions. For these, Liam will use Predictable for both the construction and the delivery of his message.
The potential of apps like Predictable are so empowering for users like Liam -- whose belief is that people with MND should be treated with respect and dignity just like any other individual. Liam also affirms that users should do all they can to maximise their quality of life, which is also a large intent behind Predictable.
Liam claims that Therapy Box "have a good product", and reflects this with his regular use of the app.
Everything from email checking and sending, to journey planning and assisting can be carried out with Predictable. The benefits of using the Android device are far from understated: as Liam's wife Anna attests, "If you have got your SIM card in there as well, it's everything... you've got it all in just one device."
Fortunately, Liam's condition allows for direct touch access to Predictable, meaning he can simply tap the screen to operate. With the capacity to communicate his ideas and his words, and to make social situations easier to handle, Predictable has made a highly positive impact on Liam's routine.
At Therapy Box, that makes everything we do worthwhile.
