Enable Chris to use a tablet himself

My name is Christopher Layo I'm 28 years and I have a severe disability known as Duchenne muscular dystrophy. I basically have no use of my arms, and little use of my hands, just enough to drive a power chair, with a mini joystick and operate a mouse. I always wanted to have a touch screen android phone tablet to attach to my wheelchair, and bed but without proper hand movement I am unable to use any touchscreen device. I have to have my attendents answer my phone, giving me no privacy. With this tablet and device I will be able to communicate with friends and family on my own, via texting, video, and phone calls. The device is called Housemate ECU and it connnects to any android phone. I can use the whole device just by clicking a tiny switch, which I could do with my left hand. It gets quite complicated so here is a link that explains more. http://www.broadenedhorizons.com/housemate It will give me a greater sense of safety, because I can get help at any time I need it, especially if I am in bed and can't move. It will also make my life more productive and easier, those who have smart phones know how handy can be. Also it will allow me to operate anything in my environment, such as DVD players, television, anything that comes with a remote, this Housemate ECU can operate. You can also buy switches and other devices so that the tablet can turn on lights, control thermostats and almost everything in my environment, giving me a kind of freedom and independence that I have not had in 18 years.

 I am trying to get 4 things Housemate ecu, with hid mouse, the core companion,  Android Tablet Phone - Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 - Unlocked GSM Voice Calls & 3G Mobile Data  Power2Go iPad, Android Tablet, or Aug Comm Charger
