UroMed is publishing the e-book series for Kindle and iPad users because of the accessibility advancements that these technology devices offer. “Kindles and iPads have become some of the most popular assistive technology products available to people with disabilities. As a growing number of our customers are relying on Kindle and iPad for everyday tasks, online access and entertainment, we wanted to offer more resources and content that is designed specifically for the people we serve,” says UroMed Director of Marketing Lisa Wells.
