The TSF, previously the Todd Stablefelt foundation, was created in 2008 as a 501(c)(3) (EIN# 26-3258569) by Todd Stablefelt to educate and provide people with mobility issues access to assistive technologies that can provide them greater independence.For information on Todd’s current projects please visit his website https://toddstabelfeldt.com/. Todd was instrumental to bringing a technology called switch control which is a software on the Apple iPhone as well as the tecla device which lets the user communicate with the iPhone too many people in need of this product in the Washington area. In 2015 Todd Stablefelt and Tyler Schrenk partnered to create the TSF with the same mission but with a focus on offering a wider variety of assistive technologies and reaching out to people outside of Washington. Currently we have served 11 different states in three different countries (Mexico, Germany and Romania). We are the only nonprofit foundation in the greater Seattle area offering this service and are committed to continuing improving lives of those who are mobility impaired. Since 2013 we have funded and completed over 40 assistive technology setups ranging from controlling a cell phone hands-free to controlling a TV by voice.
My foundations objectives include funding and installing assistive technology phone systems allowing users to control their phone hands-free, voice controlled lighting systems, voice controlled television devices (such as Xbox one and Amazon fire TV), voice controlled door openers, and customized devices ranging from water bottles, spatulas and spoons to hold food and independent cough assist machines that can all be accessed without the use of one's arms and hands. These items provide recipients a higher quality of life through increasing independence. We provide these services in the Seattle area as well as focusing on educating and providing these technologies to people outside of Washington.
We believe our projects will introduce how assistive technologies can be vital in the lives of those who are mobility impaired. As a result, we anticipate that when these technologies are introduced, the quality of life will improve those who we serve by giving them an independence they have lost and hope that they can use this independence to begin leaving their comfort zones and connecting with other people who have similar interests and struggles.
