Communicate with your medical providers and family, use your favorite computing device, or control your environment with an easy-to-use, eye-safe laser pointer and specialized keyboard, now with a Bluetooth wireless interface! The video on the left demonstrates the power of safe-laser pointing for people with very minimal movement capabilities as well as the features for the new Bluetooth version.
A single word for describing the Safe-laser System is “simple.” Young children find moving the laser light easy to do. Adults who have suffered a brain injury often find moving a light easy to do. In fact, our research has demonstrated that some people diagnosed with “locked-in syndrome” actually learn to move their head using our safe-laser technology. The key is simplicity.
The Safe-laser System provides a continuum of access options. Start out just pointing the eye-safe laser* at a letter board or images and let a communication partner interpret what the point means. Then progress to a “call button” that lets someone know you want to tell them something – and you point to letters while they interpret. Then, using dwell or a secondary switch, you can write out messages to the display, or access recorded speech on a key-by-key basis. You can also control the TV. Finally, connect the Safe Laser System to an inexpensive Android tablet and use our LaserChat and LaserChat Pro apps to achieve text-to-speech output without or with word prediction. It is all possible with the new Safe-laser System – simple light pointing, spelling, Bluetooth or USB computer access, speech output, and environmental control. And it is easy to do. The Safe-laser System isn’t for everybody, but it is simple!
*The Safe-laser System is a Class 1 Laser Product, the safest FDA classification possible.
