Grid Pad 13

Our mid-sized Grid Pad Eye features an extra-long battery life. It is built around a ruggedised 13” tablet that runs Windows 10. Grid 3 runs quickly thanks to the powerful Intel Celeron 1.4 GHz processor and 8GB of memory. The hard disk is a fast 256GB solid state drive.

The Grid Pad 13 includes a spare hot-swappable battery so you can continue using the device even when you are low on power.

Grid Pad 18

Our largest Grid Pad is often used in classrooms or mounted at the home or office. It is not suitable for wheelchair mounting. The large screen provides bigger targets that help people with some access difficulties or visual impairment.

The device is built around an 18” tablet with an Intel Quad Core processor and 8GB of RAM. The hard disk is 500GB.

Multiple eye gaze options

Both the Grid Pad 13 and 18 support many eye gaze cameras. The following eye gaze cameras are available:

  • EyeTech TM5 Mini (13 only)
  • Alea Intelligaze
  • MyGaze Assistive 2

Choose the camera that works best for you and we will setup the Grid Pad with the necessary mounting plate. The two USB and switch ports provide the option for supplementary access devices to work alongside the eye gaze camera.

Powered by Grid 3

Grid 3 is included with every Grid Pad. It provides a complete AAC solution for people communicating with symbols, text or a combination of both. Other features include Computer Control, a complete suite of Accessible Apps, Interactive Learning resources and access to our Online Grid portal.

Flexible mounting

The Grid Pad 13 includes an integrated stand to make positioning the device at the best angle for table top use. For wheelchair users, or those who prefer a floor stand, both the Grid Pad 13 and 18 has a  mounting plate that is compatible with REHAdapt and Daessy systems.

Easy editing

Resources are simple to update and edit on the go. Whether you need to add a cell to your grid or download a whole new grid set – you can do it all through your device.

Innovative sound

The Grid Pad comes with integrated high quality amplified sound, so there is no need for additional speakers.

Servus Environment control

Inbuilt infra-red technology replaces the remote controls that normally operate TV, music centres and other similar systems. Also included is radio control that can operate sockets, alarms and relays.

Dedicated or standard setup

For people that only want to use the Grid Pad as an AAC device, we can supply it in dedicated mode. At no additional cost we restrict the device so that only our Grid software can be used.
