Keyguards are a great solution for users who have trouble making finger-touch selections to their ComLink. For example, if a user gets fatigued and has difficulty holding their palms off of the screen when making selections, they can use a keyguard as a platform to rest their hands on and then make selections (only to the desired targets) using the keyguard's cut-out regions. Our premium keyguards are constructed from high strength acrylic and all edges are rounded and are soft-to-touch. In addition, they mount easily and securely using rubber straps and pin locators that make sure they always maintain perfect alignment.
Switches allow a user to access their device through the scanning mode in the software. Our communication software can scan both user defined or preset groups of cells. If the user's selection is in the desired group, the user then presses the scanning switch, and the selection is made. We offer a wide variety of switches in various shapes, sizes, and colors. In addition, our software can support multiple switches and joysticks as well. Switches can be positioned merely anywhere, using one of our switch mounting solutions.
The Head Pointer provides accessibly for a wide range of applications. For example, the Head Pointer allows users to access their ComLink device by making selections to the touch screen via that Head Pointing Stick. In addition, users can access personal computers, appliances, light controls, elevator buttons, and more. The Head Pointer is light weight (approximately 7.5 ounces) and features a durable plastic frame lined with high density foam padding. The adjustable neck strap and head band accommodate users of all ages and assure a comfortable and custom fit. The Head Pointer comes standard with an 18" straight rod however; custom formed and alternate rod lengths are available as well.
Optical Head Mouse Kit
The Optical Head Mouse Kit is a fast way for users to access their device whenever finger touch access is not an option. A small reflective dot is placed somewhere on the user's head and the Optical Head Mouse tracks the dot and transforms any movement that it sees, into mouse cursor movement. Essentially, head movement is used to drive the mouse cursor. Selections or "mouse clicks" are made by simply holding the cursor on the desired target. In addition, our software offers the capability to make other mouse simulations such as left double-click, right clicks, etc. Finally, using the FlexABLE™ mount (included in kit), the head mouse can be tilted infinitely within its range of adjustment. This gives the user far more positioning flexibility than conventional fixed or integrated solutions.
Enable Eyes II™ Access Module
The Enable Eyes II™ Access Module is a state-of-the-art eye tracking device that can easily be added to the ComLink ST3G or ComLink LT3G at any time. The ability to add eye tracking to a ComLink is paramount to meeting the needs of progressive disorders such as ALS. For example, if a user can currently use finger touch as their access method but may someday require eye tracking, you can purchase a portable device now and add the Enable Eyes II™ Access Module if and when it is needed.
Environment Control Accessories
FRS IR Phone
The FRS IR Phone can be used with existing land lines as a speaker phone to send and receive phone calls using the ComLink device. The IR Phone communicates wirelessly with the ComLink, which has pre-built pages to control the IR phone. The pages are fully programmed but can be customized to send speed dials right from the device. In addition, the ComLink can be programmed to perform multiple tasks from a single cell. For example, answer the phone and read recorded messages such as "hello, I am using a communication device, please bear with me". Because the ComLink is designed for accessibility, people using scanning, eye tracking, or optical head mice, can now make and receive telephone calls using the IR and voice output capabilities of the ComLink.
Home Automation Modules
ComLink devices configured with Environment Control Units (ECU) can communicate with our home automation modules to control items in the user's home. For example, appliance modules can be used to turn on or off fans or other appliances. Lamp modules can not only control the on and off functionality of a lamp but also provide dimming controls. In addition, more involved implementations are also available such as automatic door openers and more. All of these devices can be controlled by the ComLink regardless of what the user's access method is. The ComLink not only includes all of the required pre-programmed pages, our devices are also pre-loaded with the necessary IR signals to communicate with the modules.
Need extra warranty? We offer both limited warranties and all-inclusive warranties for our ComLink devices. Please contact us for more details.
Our wireless mouse can be used as an access device for speech output and is also a handy accessory to have when programming your ComLink. The mouse uses a small USB powered radio transmitter that plugs into one of the ComLink's USB ports and then communicates wirelessly with the mouse. The wireless communication totally eliminates cords that get tangled or are just in the way.
Our keyboard perfectly sized for our ComLink devices. It is small enough to be portable but large enough to be productive. For typists, the keyboard can be used to enter text which is then converted to speech output. In addition the keyboard is a great tool to use when programming a device as well. The keyboard plugs into one of the ComLink's USB ports.
Soft Carry Case
Our soft carry cases provide a level of protection for a ComLink. The cases help to minimize scratching and scuffing that occurs during transport. In addition, the cases have both internal and external compartments for storage of accessories such as the wireless mouse, keyboard, charger, and more. The Soft Carry Case features a shoulder strap and handle to make your device easy to transport.
