Unique blink to click access

Control your device with simple blinks, nous combines a unique headset and smart software package that can be used alongside Grid to communicate.


Everything you need to get started

The nous™ comes in two parts: the BrainLink headset, and the nous software.

The BrainLink headset is made of a soft, breathable fabric which allows the user to wear it comfortably for long periods.

The headset detects intentional blinks, while the nous™ software uses them ‘click’ on a computer.

Easy to set up software

The Nous software is easy to use and configure out of the box. Following on screen instructions the Nous is connected to your device via Bluetooth with over a 15 metre range.

Compatible with Grid 3

Once connected, nous™ is easy to configure in Grid 3. Use Grid’s settings to adjust the nous to respond exactly how you need.

For more information on using nous with Grid, you can find out more at the nous™ website.

Using nous™ with Grid

Using Switches

Grid 3 supports many different switch interactions, each designed to help make selections in a way that suits you.

Scan cells, columns or blocks to focus in on the grid to activate, choose letters, commands and more.

Frequency keyboards

Inside Text Talker and Alpha Core, literate users can switch to frequency based keyboards. These keyboard layouts arrange the keys by those that appear most frequently in the first 1-2 letters of a word, as well as overall in the English language. Combined with Grid’s Chat History and prediction features, sentences can be written faster and more effectively with fewer switch activations.
