Grid3 Smartbox

The Grid3 Smartbox is a high-tech communication device that gives a voice to the voiceless. It utilizes eye gaze technology and a text-to-speech feature to give individuals who have lost the ability to speak the opportunity to have a voice in their life again. It can be modified in a variety of ways to best support the individual user. Although communication devices can be provided by insurance, the application process is often quite lengthy and may not always reach the user in time. For a disease which can progress quite rapidly, timing is crucial. ALS TLC hopes to be able to provide these devices more readily than the standard insurance procedure.
