High spec computer

Grid Pad has the latest generation Intel core i5 processor, with 8GB RAM and a solid-state hard drive. This fast processor enables seamless communication, so you can keep up with conversation.

All-day battery

Grid Pad is designed to help you communicate all day long. The large battery provides up to 15 hours continuous use, or 10 hours with eye gaze.

Remote power button

Grid Pad comes with our remote power button, to give you more independence. If you are not physically able to press this power button, you can plug any switch into the button and use it to turn the Grid Pad on.

Powered by Grid 3

Grid Pad is designed for Grid 3, our flagship software for communication, Environment Control and more. Grid 3 includes a wide range of AAC resources, designed for people of all ages with different levels of literacy.

Designed for all access

Tough HD touchscreen display

Grid Pad has a 12.5” HD touchscreen, with a hardened glass display. The anti-glare finish makes it easier to see the screen when you are out and about.

Keyguards

Robust keyguards with secure fastening are available to order for any grid set in Grid 3 (available soon).

USB access devices

Grid Pad has two USB ports on the back of the device that enable you to use any other type of alternative access device, such as a joystick, trackball, SmartNAV or Quha Zono head mouse.

Eye gaze access

Grid Pad works with all major eye gaze technology.

A purpose-built eye gaze module is available with the EyeTech TM5 or Irisbond Duo camera. This module turns the Grid Pad into an integrated eye gaze communication aid.

Bespoke mounting plates are also available for Alea, LC Edge, myGaze and Tobii PC Eye Mini cameras.

Switch input

There are two built-in ports for switches. These specially reinforced ports are also recessed for added protection.

Auditory feedback

The headphone socket can be used for auditory feedback, useful for people with visual impairment. In Grid 3, this enables you to hear what a cell will say before you choose to select it.

Built to be heard

Grid Pad’s integrated speakers have been engineered to produce high quality sound and volume – to help get your message across effectively, wherever you are.

Mounting and positioning options

Rehadapt and Daessy mounting options give you choice and flexibility in every environment. Use Grid Pad anywhere with the variable angle desk stand.

Environment control

Grid Pad comes with built-in infrared and radio environment control. There is a front-facing infrared learning window to make inputting commands easier.
