Global Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) provider Smartbox Assistive Technology has launched a new communication aid designed to give disabled children and adults a voice.
Grid Pad 10s will join the range of Grid Pad devices designed and manufactured by Smartbox and has been built with user independence and durability in mind.
It is designed for anyone with complex communication or access needs and includes a range of resources, from communication tools for text users, to resources for communicating with symbols.
Grid also includes a range of accessible apps to help users get online, use social media, listen to music, change the channel on TV and much more.
Dougal Hawes, MD at Smartbox Assistive Technology said, “With an ongoing commitment to research and development and a real passion for delivering a range of AAC hardware and software solutions that make a real difference to our global customers, Grid Pad 10s is an innovative new addition to our range of devices, offering a portable, communication aid that is robust, versatile and powerful.”
The new device features an impact-resistant magnesium-alloy chassis, protecting it from everyday knocks and bumps.
The 10-inch antiglare screen is made with toughened industrial grade glass, which has been optically bonded to the display panel, protecting it against impacts and scratches.
