GEWA Connect

Most people want to be independent, be in control of their lives and live a fulfilling life. GEWA Connect helps you control the appliances in your home and let you use the built in and downloaded apps in your smartphone or tablet.

The remote control app is easy to use and lets you operate your TV, turn on and off the lights, open windows and doors or z-wave units such as Andromeda Socket. You can use both IR and GEWA Radio as transmit method. It makes you become more independent and feel safe both in your home and at work.

Stay in contact with family and friends by making phone calls, send text messages or using Facebook and other social media or by reading the latest news online. Watch YouTube or play music by controlling your smartphone with GEWA Connect.

Lightwriter SL50

The new Lightwriter SL50 has been designed to be the best dedicated text-to-speech device for literate users who are unable to communicate effectively through speech.

With a Lightwriter you can participate in social interactions while at work or during leisure time, even in noisy, sunny outdoor or poorly lit environments.

Every part of the Lightwriter SL50 has been designed specifically for purpose. From the dual screens and loud clear speakers, to the user interface and word prediction - everything is focused on delivering your speech as effectively as possible. So, no more compromises, no more distractions, just clear, fast effective communication at the press of a button. Just start typing and off you go.

About us

Company details

Abilia gives people with special needs the power to become independent and take control of their daily lives.Based on our more than 40 years’ experience and supported by research evidence, we know that our assistive technology helps people to get structure over their day, to communicate with people, to control appliances in their home and call for attention. We believe that everyone should have the same opportunities to participate in society on their terms, and are passionate about enabling people access to a more fulfilling life.

Needs can differ depending on the person's situation and age. The individual may have Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy, ADHD/ADD, or autism spectrum disorder. Or they may have suffered a spinal cord or brain injury in an accident, suffered a stroke, or begun showing signs of dementia. Whatever the background to their needs, everyone has the right to live an independent life while interacting with others. The focus may be on making it easier for a young person to handle their school day or on giving an elderly person the ability to live at home longer. Our company name itself highlights how important this is to us. The name Abilia stems from the word 'ability'.

Many of our approximately 100 employees have personal experience with disability, either professionally or in relation to a loved one. This not only makes us more committed, but also gives us broad expertise in assistive technology. We know how important access to our products is to our users and therefore put great focus on providing quality service and support. Abilia develops, manufactures and sells aids for individuals with disabilities in the areas of communication, cognition and environment control & alarm.

We have offices in Sweden, Norway, and the UK, and export our products to another 20 countries. Abilia is a merger of the four companies Gewa, Falck Igel, Handitek and Toby Churchill. Our turnover currently amounts to about SEK 200 million. Abilia is owned by MedCap, a Nordic investor that focuses on established Life Science companies with significant development potential. MedCap has been part-owner in the former GEWA AB since 2007.
