We Connect Oklahomans with Disabilities to Assistive Technology (AT)
September AT Inventory Highlights
Assistive Technology (AT) can be used in a variety of ways, and for a variety of purposes. It can support people in carrying out everyday tasks and activities, enhance their safety, support their social participation, monitor their health, and more. This month, we're featuring AT that might be helpful for people who are deaf or hard of hearing!
The UbiDuo 3 Text to Speech (TTS-1) is a text-based speech-generating device. The UbiDuo assists with face-to-face communication and is designed for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing and for individuals who have difficulty speaking.
The UbiDuo 3 TTS-1 includes a built-in speaker, voice technology, a real-time split-screen interface, a full keyboard, and customizable font and background.
The Lifetone Bedside Fire Alarm and Clock provides a solution to at-risk groups that include children, seniors, hard of hearing or hearing impaired individuals, and people who just sleep well and soundly.
The Lifetone syncs with a smoke alarm, and if the smoke alarm sounds, the Lifetone will flash, give a lower audible pitch alerting “Fire” on a large display, and activate the bed shaker in an attempt to wake the person.
The smpl Technology SOS Help Pendant Alert Kit provides a simple, low-tech solution when someone needs help in an emergency or needs something from another at a distant location. Press the button on the help pendant and the device will transmit a signal to the portable alert system, which will notify a relative/caregiver with vibration, an audible alarm, and a flashing indicator light.
The transmission is capable of traveling up to 250 ft. indoors or 500 ft. outdoors. The portable alert can be clipped to a belt, in our pocket, wall mounted, or placed on a table. This device does not require Wi-Fi or a monthly fee.
The Midland Weather Alert Radio with Silent Call Light and Bed Shaker is a Public Alert certified weather radio. This alert system includes a silent call strobe light and bed shaker. Audible vibration and strobe flashing (using the included light and bed shaker) alert you to hazardous conditions for around-the-clock, up-to-the-minute weather information.
