The new I-Series is developed for people with disabilities such as cerebral palsy and ALS. It provides them with a voice to communicate and become more independent. The smaller I-13 and the larger I-16 are packed with groundbreaking innovations such as a partner window and industry-leading eye tracking performance using Tobii’s latest eye tracking sensor IS5. The partner window is a second screen, located on the back of the device, which mirrors the phrases being typed and enables true face-to-face communication.
“The I-Series has made it possible for me to continue to do what ALS otherwise would have taken away from me. I can keep in touch with friends on Facebook, enjoy the latest shows on Netflix and go to live concerts. But most importantly, I can continue to coach the kids in basketball, football and deliver my pre and post-game speeches to them”, said Jeff Fogel, youth sports coach diagnosed with ALS.
“Eye tracking unlocks a world of possibilities and with this new device, built on years of research and customer feedback, we have pushed the limits of what a communication device can do”, said Fredrik Ruben, CEO of Tobii Dynavox. “Our goal with the new I-Series is to create the best possible experience and empower our users in their daily lives for increased independence.
