ULTRA Tab 2 Features

What Features Make the ComLink ULTRA™ “Better By Design”?


ComLink Communication Suite™-Full Version

The ComLink Software Suite™ contains over 4,000 pre-programmed pages categorized by type and suited to meet the needs of augmented communicators of all ages and proficiency. The ComLink software allows for message formulation by letters, words, phrases, symbols and pictures. 


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, 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 ULTRA™ 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.


Optional Environmental Control ECU Control

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

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 ULTRA.


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.)

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 3-D 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.


Industrialized Construction

The industrialized construction of the ULTRA utilizes ABS+PC polymer case materials to provide exceptional durability and ruggedness.


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.

ComLink ULTRA Hot Swap

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.

 

 


3-Bay, Multiple Battery Charger

This 3-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 3 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.

 

 


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.

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.

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.

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.
