ComLink ST-Lite™

ST3G Lite Tab 1 Overview Plus

New for 2012!

The ComLink ST-Lite™ gives you the same great features found in the ComLink ST3G while adding the benefits of the revolutionary SoundPOD™ wearable AAC device!

Users can quickly remove the wireless SoundPOD™ from its magnetic docking cradle located on the back of the ST-Lite™ and then attached it to their neck lanyard. With built in magnets and indexing locaters you can easily convert back and forth from the neck worn in-use configuration and the easy dock configuration with minimal dexterity requirements.

Here's the revolutionary part...With the SoundPOD™ worn on your neck lanyard, your voice output originates from your upper body and the audio stream is directed toward the person your talking to. This simple idea of wearing the SoundPOD™ gives you a more natural communication experience as your listener's attention is focused on you and what your are saying rather than the hand held speech generating device. With its small size and light weight design, you can also slip the SoundPOD™ underneath your shirt for a discrete and hidden solution.

Since your using an FRS ComLink, you'll recieve the entire Life-Links™ Communication Suite complete with over 4,000 professionally developed and field proven AAC pages ranging in functionality between beginner to advanced.

With the ComLink ST-Lite™ you’ll enjoy benefits from:

  • A more natural conversation with voice originating from your upper body and directed toward your listener.
  • Rugged commercial grade design resistant to dust, moisture, and dropping onto hard surfaces
  • Lifetime Tech Support thru the FRS Remote Help Desk including 1 hr of free setup support

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 switch scanning (optional switch input module required), joysticks, optical head mouse, and voice recognition.


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 ST-Lite™ capabilities at anytime.


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!


Handwriting Recognition

For those who prefer to use their own hand writing to communicate, our powerful Handwriting Recognition feature and accompanying page integration, works seamlessly with word prediction for fast, effective speech output.


Protective Rubber Bumper Guards

The integrated Protective Rubber "Bumper" Guards not only provide an ease to handle gripping surface, the Guards also work to absorb shock during  rough handling that occurs in "real world" environments. This helps protect the device from sustaining damage to the sides, corners, and internal components.


Industrialized Construction

The industrialized construction of the ST-Lite utilizes strong magnesium-aluminum case materials together with high impact ABS to provide exceptional durability and ruggedness.


 

Language-Links™Language-Links™ Logo

At its core, Language-links is a progressive developmental language system uniquely structured to provide a content continuum from one level to the next. With page sets ranging from beginning language development through advance development, Language-Links is appropriate for persons of all ages from preschool to adults.

Powerful Processor

Hot-Swap Battery System

The easy access Hot Swap Battery can be swapped out for additional runtime without having to turn-off the system. This unique design provides a fast and easy way to add extra battery runtime without adding unwanted weight and bulk to the light weight and portable ComLink ST-Lite.


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.)


FlexABLE™ Handle & Stand- Optional

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. ComLink ST-Lite with optional FlexABLE™ Handle and 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.

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.


Automatic user files backup system

Power Accessories

Hot Swap Batteries

Hot Swap Batteries are easy to access and allow extra battery runtime on the ComLink device. Unlike traditional solutions such as over-sized batteries, Hot Swap Batteries don’t add extra bulk or weight to the system itself. Best of all, these batteries can be swapped out while the device is still running so you don't have to shut down your system, nor worry about losing any in-progress work during a battery change-out.

 

 


Single-Bay, Hot Swap Battery Charger

This single-bay battery charger allows you to charge an additional Hot Swap Battery externally, rather than charging the battery on the device itself. This is charger is recommended whenever additional Hot Swap Batteries are purchased as it allows you to charge the ComLink Device and the additional battery separately.

 


6-Bay, Multiple Battery Charger

This 6-Bay Multiple Battery Charger is the perfect solution for situations where charging multiple batteries at once is needed. Maybe you have additional batteries for a single device, or just want a single solution to charge batteries on multiple devices. In either case, this 6 Bay Multiple Battery Charger is the perfect solution.

 

 

 


Accessibility 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.

 

 


Switch Access Option

 

Provides for attachment of single and dual access switches using 1/8” jacks. Also adds capability for wireless switch access when used in conjunction with the optional wireless switch input transmitter. Call for details.

 

 

 


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.

Extended Warranty

Wireless Mouse

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.

 


Keyboard

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.

 

 


Webcam Kit

The Webcam Kit features a USB plug and play camera and the FRS FlexABLE™ mounting system. The camera can be faced toward the user (as pictured) for performing video conference calls with applications such as Skype™. It can also be facing forward to take pictures that can be later used with communication pages, cells, or picture viewers. The FlexABLE™ mount provides ample positioning flexibility and allows you to adjust the camera orientation without repositioning the device.
