In early 2020, Accessibility Services, Inc. (ASI) introduced the world’s first device offering augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and environmental control unit (ECU) tools while seamlessly incorporating all available adaptive access methods and providing a fully integrated television experience. In otherwards, the autonoME Hospital ECU can do it all!
The engineers at ASI developed the autonoME ECU in hospital solution to address the demand for an all-in-one system to serve the unique needs of individuals with severe spinal cord and brain injuries as well as those with progressive diseases such as ALS. Most environmental control units only control a user’s surroundings. The autonoME, however, is a combined custom environmental control unit / speech generating device with voice assistive technology. Our next series of articles will highlight some of the features that make the autonoME such an attractive commercial / hospital ECU.
As we mentioned earlier, the autonoME Hospital ECU has several input methods to accommodate different levels of injury and disease progression, including voice, touch, sip and puff, eye gaze, head tracking, switch scanning and more.
The autonoME Hospital ECU features a fully integrated television experience. The autonoME’s Television app allows the user to turn the television on and off, view a channel list and select channels.
The autonoME Hospital ECU is equipped with a browser so users can easily surf the Internet.
Our next article will discuss more reasons why the autonoME is the “go to” ECU in hospital, rehabilitation and long term care settings.
