More than five million people in the United States, over eleven million in the European Economic Community, and many more worldwide, are visually impaired to the point where eyeglasses are not sufficient to enable them to meet a large portion of their visual needs. Many are seniors whose eyesight has begun to diminish due to macular degeneration. The number of seniors -people over 65- increased by 22 percent between 1980 and 1990, to about 13 percent of the population in North America. The number of people who could potentially benefit from Telesensory's low vision products is expected to continue to increase as the world's population ages.
was born out of the desire to help a blind girl read. In 1970, four members of the prestigious American Stanford University electrical engineering department led by Professor John Linvill developed the technology that was to become the Optacon, a portable electronic print-reading device, the company's first product, in an effort to assist Professor Linvill's vision impaired daughter.
is the legacy of a number of pioneers in the adaptive devices industry, starting with Telesensory
itself, Visualtek and Apollo Lasers in the early 1970s, and Kurzweil Computer Products in 1975. In the 1980s, Telesensory
began to focus on providing devices for the low vision population to meet the needs of the aging American population. Continuous research and development has created the industry’s 1st transportable unit, the Vertex
in 2007, as well as other product improvements such as Apex Pro
and Vertex Pro
