The iPod Based SoundPOD is a handheld direct selection communicator designed for use by individuals with speech or communication disabilities and severe physical or neurological disabilities. Available as a complete system or as a conversion kit for an existing iPod Touch (not included with the conversion kit), this device comes with TouchChat AAC software (not included with the conversion kit) and a SoundPOD wearable augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) device. Users can remove the wireless SoundPOD from its magnetic docking cradle located on the back of the iPod Touch and then attach it to a neck lanyard (included). The user can convert back and forth from the neck-worn in-use configuration and the docked configuration with minimal dexterity requirements. With the SoundPOD worn on the neck lanyard, voice output originates from the upper body and the audio stream is directed toward the person being talked to, providing a more natural communication experience. The SoundPOD's small size and lightweight design allow it to be slipped underneath a shirt for a discrete and hidden communication solution. The unit can also be worn on the included hand/wrist strap or the optional accessible belt clip. In addition to the voice-output of the SoundPOD, users can access the featues of the iPod Touch, enabling them to send and receive emails, text messages, and more. Designed for users with dexterity disabilities, the SoundPOD utilizes a touch panel with large bubble buttons. POWER: The SoundPOD uses an independent high capacity lithium ion battery and the iPod uses a built-in rechargeable battery. A charger for the SoundPOD is included. OPTIONS: Belt clip and carrying cases. WARRANTY: 90-day warranty; an optional one-year warranty is included.
