Software such as Dragon Professional Individual or Dragon Professional Group gives people the ability to work on a computer using their voice to type and perform mouse clicks, resulting in hands-free use and increased efficiency. Dragon is beneficial for individuals with injuries such as; Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI), Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) and those with catastrophic injuries like quadriplegia and more.

Workplace pains and strains can be prevented by using Dragon Professional Individual for everyone using a computer. Being able to use your voice to type and click the mouse is a simple and easy way to keep everyone healthy and productive.

Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries are any injuries that have serious, long-term effects on the victim. They can often put serious stress on the victim’s family because they may need constant supervision or assistance for the rest of their lives, as well as a lifetime of rehabilitation and medical bills. Dragon can be a “lifesaver” in these types of cases. It gives them back a sense of independence and allows an individual to use a computer. With proper training and equipment, an individual can become productive again.

It is designed to assist persons who have physical, mental, emotional and learning disabilities. We work with state, federal or private rehabilitation to provide guidance and evaluations to identify the specific needs of the client in order to assist them with computer access and knowledge through one-on-one training.
