From their website:
Spectronics was founded in Brisbane in 1985 by Michael O’Leary, Managing Director of Spectronics. At the time, Michael was working as an occupational therapist, applying technology options to assist people with cerebral palsy and spinal cord injury to achieve their goals. He was frustrated by the limited availability in Australia of the many new technologies emerging overseas. He saw establishment of a company such as Spectronics as a means of improving the situation.
From humble beginnings, Spectronics has grown significantly, and now requires 20 staff to meet the demand of the Australasian public for special needs technologies developed within Australia, New Zealand and around the globe. Because of this demand, Spectronics now supplies over 1500 different products.
Spectronics is proud to have been appointed as exclusive importer for a growing number of technology companies from around the globe, or for specific assistive technologies from within their range.
