APPLYING AN ADAPTATION OF TELEPHONE INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY IN USE BY THIS FIRM FOR SMALL BUSINESSES UNDER THE TRADE NAME OF QUIK-TELL, WE PROPOSE TO ESTABLISH THE TECHNICAL MERIT AND FEASIBILITY OF MAKING AVAILABLE TO THE ELDERLY AND DISABLED, MEDICAL AND GERIATRIC INSTITUTIONS, FAMILY MEMBERS AND OTHER INTERESTED INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS, A WIDE RANGE OF INFORMATION CONCERNING INNOVATIVE SELF-HELP DEVICES. WE WILL DEMONSTRATE HOW A BANK OF INFORMATION CAN BE ASSEMBLED, ESSENTIAL INFORMATION CONCERNING SPECIFIC CATEGORIES OF DEVICES PUT ON A SERIES OF TELEPHONE TAPES, AND MADE AVAILABLE AT NO COST TO INDIVIDUALS (ELDERLY, HANDICAPPED, PROFESSIONAL PERSONS, FAMILY, FRIENDS, ETC.) AND TO INSTITUTIONS FOR A MODEST FEE. THE SERVICE WILL BE THE "PRODUCT" AND WE WILL DESCRIBE ITS POTENTIAL COMMERCIAL APPEAL TO PROVIDER ORGANIZATIONS WHO WILL BE PRIVILIGED TO INCLUDE A SPONSOR'S MESSAGE WITH EACH TAPE. AN IMPORTANT BY-PRODUCT OF THE DATA GATHERING WILL BE TO UNCOVER PREVIOUSLY UNEXPLORED DEVICES THAT SHOULD BE CANDIDATES FOR COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT. A FURTHER COMMERCIALIZATION DEVELOPMENT OF THE SERVICE WOULD BE THE PROVISION OF HARD COPY ILLUSTRATIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR INNOVATIVE APPLICATIONS.
