Matt has used a Tellus for many years to support him through school and university to not only communicate but to be able to perform computing tasks. More recently Matt was awarded his MSc in Computing which he completed using his Tellus.
Living with Cerebral Palsy causes some physical disability for Matt but with the use of head switches, Matt is able to complete tasks on his Tellus whether they are emails, browsing the internet or using the processing power of his device to do complicated computer calculations for his research work.
