Empowering people with limited ability

KISA has been designed with input from organisations like Vision Australia, Guide Dogs Australia and Dementia Australia. The purpose of the design was to help individuals with various limitations, illnesses or injuries to reach out in the case of emergency and be able to be reached in case of the emergency. For many of our customers using ordinary communication devices that are available on the market is simply not practical.

KISA Team constantly strives to find a better way to give our clients an increase in their independence and give loved one’s peace of mind.

With input from specialists in the field; KISA has developed a unique device that includes large mechanical buttons, large easy to read print, dedicated emergency services button and the ability to reach out for help with the press of just one mechanical button.

Having the ability to get reliable GPS tracking information 24/7 provides a sense of security knowing that your loved one is safe.

With twelve designs to choose from, KISA can accommodate most individual tastes and needs like struggle to read or use ordinary device with screen and digital menus. The large sized font used on the device also helps many users navigate the contact buttons easily and effectively so they can confidently reach out to the right contact when needed.

Having the ability to display images as contacts give our clients confidence in knowing who they’re contacting without having to necessarily read the contacts on the buttons, remembering a face or an image is all it takes for the customer to be able to reach out to the right contact and at times it makes all the difference in case of emergency.

What people says about KISA

REVIEWS

Ben's Experience

Ben love's to chat . Often, it’s difficult to pick that he was born with an intellectual disability that gives him the perspective of an 8 year old.

For years, Ben struggled to feel like an adult, living at home with his parents, without a job, a car, a licence, or even his own mobile phone. The KISA phone has changed all that, opening Ben’s world up to newfound freedom, experience, and social contact.

He now lives independently in a flat in Preston. He has carers who help steer him through everyday life. He swims, he goes on group outings, he has his own computer and television, and he stays in regular contact with his family.

Tony, Ben's father says KISA has been life changing in a way that simply wasn’t possible with other devices...

“This invention has had a huge impact on Ben’s life. He now has a routine of weekly activities out in the community, swimming, walking, and over the weekend he is between his family or on events run by St John of God.”

KISA has given Ben his freedom, and normalised his place in the world, which is perhaps one of the most empowering achievements for those battling a disability.

Sharon's Mum

Winner! Bought one for Mum. She is sight impaired and was having lots of dramas with her landline courtesy of the NBN! She can see her contacts easily on the front of the phone, can charge it easily each night and takes it to the pokies with her so she can contact us if need be.

Kim's Mother

My fit 89 year old mother was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's & Dementia following a fall which she fractured her tibia. Mum was waiting for an hour down the street till she saw someone she knew!

Following her recovery the Kisa phone has given mum the confidence & comfort of continuing her passion for a walk safely. It has also provided our family with a great reassurance as it travels with her wherever she goes & is there at home if she needs.

Kisa has given mum a priceless source of freedom for which we are eternally grateful. A special thank you to LEON, who went out of his way to assist with the connection

RMA

Our daughter has down syndrome, and we chose the KISA phone for her because all models of "normal" mobile phones we were able to look at were far to complex for her to understand or operate.

We had some reservation about the look of the phone, fearing that she might find it too different from phones she had seen others using, or even that she might consider it babyish. In the event none of this happened, she took to it immediately and continues to use it a great deal. She is proud of it, shows it to all who visit our home, and takes it everywhere with her.

We chose a prepaid SIM from another provider to obtain an unlimited call duration, and this has proved essential as she talks at length. The phone has been a timely boost to her self esteem, and is a tool that allows her more freedom. She is now able to walk to the park on her own, as long as she takes her phone, and this is a major step forward into a more independent life.

Ray's Experience

Ray has an intellectual disability. KISA empowered him to become independent. Ray would put KISA around his neck and just became part of him.

He had photo tiles of all 8 siblings & a best friend on his KISA device, all he had to do was press the photo tile to call and keep in touch. This made for all us to know Ray was happy, sad, what was going on in his life, he always rung everyday - sometimes a few times in the day.
