Our Story

Founded in 2015, PTW makes the lives of people with physical disabilities easier by creating AT solutions that improve access to technology readily available to others.

Philip Weiss, a UC Berkeley Electrical Engineering / Computer Science (EECS) graduate and his father, Richard Weiss, a Stanford graduate, and founder / CEO of successful science and engineering consulting firm, collaborate to develop solutions to make day-to-day life safer, more comfortable and more productive for those facing physical challenges.

Philip has been severely physically disabled since childhood. He successfully completed all requirements for his BS in 2010, despite losing his ability to write with his hands after his junior year.

Throughout Philip’s life, he and his father have created assistive devices useful to Philip that were not commercially available.

PTW now delivers its solutions both directly and through partner channels.
