About Assistra Technologies LLC
Assistra provides EZ Access ® expert services and design certification to kiosk manufacturers and their clients to help them meet or exceed ADA guidelines and Section 508 requirements
EZ Access ® ensures maximum accessibility for people using self-service kiosks that have sensory or mobility impairment.
Assistra is the exclusive licensee of EZ Access ® technology which was developed at the University of Wisconsin – Trace Research & Development Center (now located at the University of Maryland) and is the only comprehensive cross-disability solution set available for self-service kiosks.
Whereas, solutions may exist that are helpful to the visually impaired, they do not meet the needs of the physically or cognitively disabled. Other solutions may work for disabled people who are technically adept, but not for those who may be uncomfortable with technology or who have become disabled later in life (i.e., the elderly). EZ Access ® helps solve this problem.
By helping our clients properly execute and certify EZ Access ® implementations, we provide them with one of the safest harbors available.
