6Degrees create value through human motion. Their technology provides equal opportunities for people with disabilities to reclaim control over smartphones, tablets and other smart devices. Their venture is rooted in empathy, their Co-Founder Aryeh Katz himself was seriously injured on duty with the Israeli Defence Forces in 2002. He was diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) which is a chronic condition caused by nerve damage to a limb.
The founders know only too well the debilitating impact of non-inclusive technology. With ‘MyMove’ – a wrist wearable that enables intuitive control over any smart device while providing real-time insights – 6Degrees aims to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities by empowering them with digital access and its advantages: connection, engagement, independence, integration into society, and employability.
