More AAC Options
Prox Talker: The LOGAN® PROXTALKER® communication device is an
exciting mid-tech device which uses RFID technology to retrieve vocabulary
stored on sound tags to produce REAL words. Ideal for any picture
exchange system user, of any age and is being used for communication or
as a classroom tool.
Sound Pod: The Patent Pending SoundPOD™ for ProSlate is a full featured,
affordable, hand-held AAC system. It is a simple, yet innovative solution that
meets the “real world” needs of those who cannot speak on their own. With its
sleek, lightweight design, the wireless SoundPOD™ can be worn around your
neck and if you choose, easily concealed under your shirt for discretion. By
generating voice output in a more natural location, the concealable SoundPOD™
speaker, combined with any size ProSlate, eliminates the negative attention
associated with using an AAC device. This revolutionary concept, focuses the
listener’s attention on what you are saying, instead of the device.
Mounts and Stands: Through partnerships with Rehadapt, Daedalus and
Mountain Mover the Monroe Speech Designs team will make sure your
device is always within reach. Wheelchair mounts, floor stands, desktop
and table displays can all be customized to meet the unique communication
needs of each individual.
