LT3G Tab 2 Features 550

What Features Make the ComLink LT3G “Better By Design”?

 


Life-Links™ Communication Suite

Life-Links Logo with Communication pages

The Life-links suite of communication packages offer solutions for individuals at all levels of language development from beginning language development to those with highly developed language skills. 


Designed for Accessibility

The ComLink is specifically designed to overcome access challenges. The device supports all forms of access including: touch screen (press, hold time-out), visual and auditory scanning (up to 8 switches), joysticks, sip & puff switches, optical head mouse, voice recognition, and eye tracking.


Product Tour

The intuitive easy-to-navigate Product Tour lets you take a “test drive” of the extensive array of pre-built page sets and ComLink LT3G capabilities at anytime.


FlexABLE™ Handle

The FlexABLE Handle is exceptionally easy to grip even for those with very limited hand dexterity. It provides a new level of independence for many users. 

 

FlexABLE Stand™

The FlexABLE Stand™ allows you to optimize visibility and reduce screen glare induced by overhead lighting. Unlike competitive fixed-position designs, our system provides infinite adjustment for precise, glare-free positioning. Competitive designs using fixed prop legs create rigid obstructions that can be harmful for spastic users who unintentionally contact the device. Our revolutionary Flex-ABLE™ Stand eliminates this danger by allowing the device to deflect upon impact, making it a soft and safe, positioning solution.

Dual Amplified Speakers

We have engineered the Dual Amplified Speakers to provide exceptionally loud and clear voice output with a rich high quality tone that will not break up at high volume levels like many others do.


 Integrated Environmental Control 

With the ComLink's integrated environmental controls, users can turn their devices into a home automation control center that turns on and off lamps, sounds a chime, controls the television, CD players, and more!


 

Large 12.1” Daylight Viewable Touch Display

The Large 12.1” Daylight Viewable Touch Display offers vivid color and maximum view-ability in all lighting conditions, including outdoors.


Powerful Processor Options

The ComLink LT3G features a 2.13GHz Intel® i7 processor, the most powerful processor available in an AAC device today. The i7 processor represents the ultimate choice for maximizing battery runtime while providing plenty of power for even high processor intensive applications.


FRS Remote Help Desk

The built-in FRS Remote Help Desk feature allows our skilled technical support team members to take control of your device remotely to solve technical issues, upload and download files or page sets or just show you how to perform a programming function right on your device. (The user must grant permission and provide the ID number to permit access to the Remote Help Desk feature.)


High Quality Acapela Voices

Each ComLink device ships standard with eight of the highest quality adult and child synthesized voices available today. Choose from Ryan, Heather, Jane, John, Laura, Nelly, Kenny, or Rosa.


Mounting Options

The ComLink can easily be mounted in a variety of different ways. Using the FRS 3D mount systems, the ComLink can be mounted to wheelchairs, tablet tops, and more.


Automatic user files backup system

The ComLink's Automatic User Files Backup system protects critical files from accidental deletion or changes. Best of all, it is performed automatically.


Dedicated Speech Generating Device (SGD)

LT3G Tab 5 Accessories 550

Accessiblity Solutions

Keyguards

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

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.

 

 


Head Pointer

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.

X-Base Table Top Mount                                           Video | Assembly Instructions

The X-Base Table Top Mount is a great way to mount your device on a table top. Each leg of the X-base is easily adjustable to accommodate for uneven surfaces by simply loosening the center knob. The device attachment can provide 360 degree rotation and tilt control as well. This base works great with our Enable Eyes™ systems as it is provides vertical adjustments as well.

 

 


Clamp-On Table Top Mount                                                    Assembly Instructions

The Clamp-On Table Top Mount is a great solution for when you need to attach a device securely to a table top surface. The system is lightweight and can easily be taken from class to class in settings such as a school environment. The system works best with hand held ComLink devices.

 

 

 

 


Overbed Table Mount

The Overbed Table Mount provides a great solution for positioning devices so that it can be from a bed, wheelchair, or GERI chair. The mount can be easily adjusted vertically by depressing a small hand actuator and allowing the spring assisted mechanism to lift the entire table surface to the desired location. The ComLink attaches to the table using a u-tube that is sized with a diameter identical to our other mount systems (so you can interchange components if need be). The u-tube can provide both vertical and forward or backward adjustment. In addition, we also offer an extended u-tube that allows the device to be positioned just beyond the front of the table which is great for users laying in the near flat position.

 

 


Rolling Floor Mount                                                    Video | Assembly Instructions

The Rolling Floor Mount is a great solution for positioning ComLink Enable Eyes™ systems. This mount is extremely versatile and uses ratcheting hand knobs for adjustment of the joints. It features four rubberized casters that are lockable so you can maintain a position without having the unit move in an unwanted direction. For vertical adjustment, it features a telescoping gas-assist column that allows positioning anywhere from 1.5 ft to 6.5 ft while maintaining a safety and stability. The Floor Stand works great for Enable Eyes™ Systems that need to be positioned high for users who are laying on an elevated bed. In addition the Floor Mount features a base wide enough to straddle most chairs for those using a wheelchair or recliner.

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.
