Ergodex Introduces the DX1 for the Assistive Technology Market.
Mountain View, CA. Ergodex, a pioneering Silicon Valley company, brings a powerful new technology to the assistive technology market that enables better accessibility to computers. The DX1 Input System recognizes the shortcomings of the keyboard and mouse in dealing with the special needs of individuals with impaired motor skills, blind/low vision conditions, cognitive impairments and/or communication disabilities.
The breakthrough technology gives people a powerful new tool to control their computers. Users can place individual keys anywhere on an 8x10 pad and assign to those keys any functions they wish. This allows them to configure the DX1 to conform to the particular size and shape of their fingers. Keys can also be placed separately or grouped in functional clusters creating a more intuitive interface for the user.
The DX1 system lets people reassign keys on the fly as their needs change. Keys contain no wires or batteries. And because they have an adhesive surface, keys can be repositioned whenever desired. The ability to reassign and reposition keys at will means the DX1 offers the ultimate in flexibility. As people's needs change, they can change their input systems.
The DX1 pad connects tp PC's via a USB cable and supports Windows 2000 and XP operating systems, with support for Vista to follow. The cost of the DX1 Input System is $149.95 and consists of a pad, 25 keys, a removable clear tray, and key labels. Accessories include 25 additional keys, additional trays and key labels.
Ergodex is building a team of AT specialists and resellers to introduce the benefits of the DX1 to the assistive technology community.
