The Tobii C15 is an augmentative and alternative communication device (AAC) that offers effective communication in all forms, from face-to-face communication to long distance communication.
Who is helped by the C15?
The Tobii C15 is especially suitable for users who are not ambulatory or who use a wheelchair. Together with the optional eye control module, the Tobii CEye. is appropriate for users who have limited or no use of hands or other body parts.
Effective communication in all its forms
With the Tobii C15, you can easily engage in daily communication via text or symbols that generate speech. You can also effortlessly:
- connect with others through e-mail, text messaging and chat
- surf the web
- play games
- and access regular computer applications
The Tobii C15 also offers environmental control (ECU) that allows you to control IR enabled equipment such as TVs, DVD players, doors and light switches (requires Tobii Communicator Premium.)
Features and Benefits
Large screen speeds up communication and is easy on your eyes
The 15” screen (40% larger than the Tobii C12) can display many symbols and a lot of text on the screen, which reduces the need to jump between different screens and speeds up communication. Alternatively, you can fit larger symbols and buttons on the screen, making selecting easier and quicker.
The Tobii C15 display uses LED backlighting, which not only uses less energy than traditional displays, but also offers you greater control over the brightness settings, providing smoother adjustments and better image quality.
Hot swappable batteries provide virtually limitless hours of communication
Hot swappable batteries make the C15 the ideal device for wheelchair users who require extensive mobility. Simply replace the depleted battery with a fully charged one, one at a time without having to shut down the device.
The input method of choice
Support for all access methods gives you the freedom of selecting the method that best suits your needs and abilities – touch screen, keyboard and mouse, switches, head tracker or eye control with the Tobii CEye.
The communication software of choice
Users are free to choose the communication package that best fits their needs.
The Tobii C15 comes pre-installed with Tobii Communicator Premium Edition, which allows users to communicate using text or the more than 15,000 included SymbolStix symbols. It comes with ready made page sets that help therapists set up an individual’s language. The Premium Edition supports e-mail, text messaging, and environmental control.
The Tobii C15 also comes with Sono Suite. These ready-made page sets suit a range of users. Sono Scribe and Sono Key are perfect for users with good literacy skills and Sono Lexis and Sono Primo provide great options for users who need symbol support to access their communication pages and the device.
Set it up the way you want
The Tobii C15 is easy to set up and adjust to your individual needs. Multiple profiles can be stored, making it easy to quickly change between a morning and an evening profile, for example, or when sharing a unit among users.
With the built-in camera it is possible to capture an image and turn it into a communication topic “on the fly”.
Built to be used
The Tobii C15 allows for an active lifestyle thanks to its shock-mounted hard disk drive, silent operation and powerful stereo speakers.
With many different mounting systems available, it is possible to mount the C15 on any wheelchair or bed frame.
Tobii C15 is based on standard Windows 7 and together with Tobii Communicator and the extensive Tobii Sono Suite, Tobii C15 becomes a complete AAC solution. Not only does it facilitate effective communication, but also the development of literacy and language.
Standard two-year warranty
A two year all inclusive warranty is offered on this Tobii AAC device.
