Key-X Multifunctional Smart Keyboard

Communication – Autonomy – Education – RehabilitationKey-X is the world's first keypad that gives people with cerebral palsy, tremors, Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's, Down Syndrome, autism, and other motor, physical and intellectual disabilities autonomy to use and control any computer, smartphone or tablet.

Empowering Assistive Technology: Instant access to any computer. Control computers with the slightest movement, without installing any program.

Key-X Multifunctional Smart Keyboard: gives you every keyboard and mouse functions in eleven large, touch-sensitive keys that can be triggered even by the blink of the eye. 

Immediate communication for those that cannot speak: Earn your voice with the TelepatiX app for Android devices. Write and vocalize sentences by choosing letters of the alphabet by scanning, with light touches on the screen, in the blink of the eyes, or with minimal movements. Created to help people that can’t speak and have very limited movements, like patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and those afflicted with Cerebral Palsy or sequels from a Cerebrovascular Accident (stroke). TelepatiX makes it possible to easily write and vocalize short sentences. A smart predictor completes the most common words and phrases, speeding up the communication.

Main Functionalities

  • The application offers an alphabet, which can be scanned by a sequential scan of lines and columns. To choose the line or column that is selected by the scan, just touch any point on the screen, even with the smallest and most imprecise of movements.
  • The selection can be made without touching the screen, using external accessories, such as the blinking detector a-blinX.
  • The user himself can easily choose the scan. He just needs to touch four times in a row on the screen, with any delay he wishes. If he is using an activator like a-blinX, for example, he just needs to blink four times, in whatever rhythm is more comfortable for him.
  • To speed up the writing, TelepatiX keeps trying to “guess” the words with every letter chosen.
  • The application learns the user’s most frequent vocabulary as well, e completes his most used sentences.
  • After writing, the person can tell the application to vocalize the sentence loud and clear.
  • TelepatiX app provides, as well, another mode of writing, where non-speaking people with uncoordinated hand movements may type touching the letters directly: the application filters the involuntary touches and writes each letter only after the person holds it for a time that he himself chooses.  See below.

Key-X – Multifunctional Smart Keyboard

The device that redefines the inclusion of people with disabilities. By itself, Key-X is an innovative resource, which gives autonomy to people with any motor limitation to control any computer. However, offering every function of keyboard and mouse with total accessibility is just a detail. With just eleven touch-sensitive keys, which can be triggered even by the blink of an eye, Key-X does much further. In conjunction with the Simplix software and its accessories, Key-X makes up an amazing platform of school inclusion and rehabilitation, capable of developing the motor and cognitive skills of students and patients with physical and intellectual disabilities.

  • It provides an alternative mode of operation for games and special software, such as Simplix, that allows interaction without the need to combine keys
  • Large, well-spaced and touch-sensitive keys allow the use of the panel without needing much force, but robust enough to resist rough touches, and can even be used with the feet
  • It can be controlled through any type of external switch (not included) by means of sequential scanning of the keys, thus enabling the use of the computer by people with more severe limitations, such as quadriplegics. Using the a-blinX switch (optional accessory), Key-X can be totally controlled with the blinking of the eyes

  • Plug and play USB interface that needs no configuration.

Key-X Benefits

Multi-use: one device allows complete typing and full control of the mouse pointer, obviating the need to occupy the screen with virtual keyboards and other accessibility resources for typing and navigation
Multi-platform: the same equipment can be used in different types of devices, such as computers, notebooks, tablets, and smartphones
Multi-user: Key-X Smart Mouse-Keyboard is designed to address many types of physical and motor disabilities, even the most severe cases of paralysis. Using external triggers as accessories (not included), Key-X allows the computer to be used even with the blink of an eye

  • Through games and specialized software such as Simplix, Key-X allows individualized pedagogical activities aimed at students and patients with intellectual disabilities or non-literate;
  • Does not require the purchase and installation of any specific software to operate;
  • It gives people with disabilities the ability to communicate autonomously and perform activities such as drawing, surfing the internet and even playing games;
  • Key-X is easy to use and intuitive, allowing its use even by children in literacy;

Create interactive boards on the spot

Dragging pictures and sounds to a virtual board on the computer screen, the professional creates unique psychomotor activities in a few minutes. 
The student or patient then interacts by associating the images and sounds of the virtual board with the colored symbols on Key-X Smart Keyboard. 

   

Typing assistant FluentiX app

Write much faster with Key-X, with less effort
FluentiX is a typing assistant with integrated text prediction, created to increase typing speed and decrease the effort spent in typing for who uses the Key-X keyboard.
This software facilitates the writing of texts, suggesting frequent word used by the person. When typing a word, if FluentiX’s suggestion is desired, you can quickly complete the word by simply playing in sequence the two keystrokes indicated next to the suggestion.
Moreover, FluentiX learns frequently used words, making the writing even more fluent with time.
FluentiX works with the Windows operating system since Windows XP and can be downloaded here.

How it works

The application receives an alphabet, where the user may choose the letters in two different ways: 

Indirectly, through a sequential scan of lines and columns. To select, just touch any part of the phone or tablet screen. It is also possible to select without touching the screen, using the blinking of the eyes (through the a-blinX accessory) or other voluntary movements (other switches). 

Touching the letters directly, in this case, the application filter the involuntary activations from people that have no fine motor control.

TelepatiX Writing by Direct Touch

TelepatiX Writing by Scanning

TelepatiX app for immediate communication

Communicate with just a few movements: rite and vocalize sentences with the smallest possible movement, choosing the letters of the alphabet by scanning, on the screen of any Android phone or tablet.

Free the Mind: People with severe movement limitations can communicate with people around using TelepatiX. The application is smart, autocompletes words and sentences, and learns by itself your most frequent vocabulary.

Any voluntary movement is enough: In order to be able to communicate using TelepatiX all that is needed is just a light touch at any point on the screen of your smartphone or tablet.
If that is not possible, no problem. Instead of touching the screen, just use a trigger like the blinking detector a-blinX.

Testimonies

Daniel Antônio da Conceição Silva

Despite having speech and body movements compromised by Cerebral Palsy, Daniel always enjoyed interacting.
Daniel Antônio da Conceição Silva
Born in 1997 in Salgueiro-PE and currently studying Computing at the Federal Institute of Sertão Pernambucano, Daniel uses the computer to perform research, write texts and learn how to use graphic applications such as Photoshop: all of that with the help of Key-X, controlled with the blink of his eyes captured through the a-blinX switch.

Moreover, in order to communicate, answer questions and manifest his characteristic sense of humor, Daniel uses the TelepatiX app on an Android tablet connected to his a-blinX =)


Gabriel Vinícius de Lima de Oliveira

Admitted at the entrance exam in 2018, student Gabriel Vinícius spent 18 years with no autonomy due to Cerebral Palsy. ...

Since the end of 2017, however, he can communicate using words with the TelepatiX app, which translates into words and voice the commands given by the blink of his eyes, captured with the eye blink switch a-blinX.

Young Marina lives in Tatuí-SP. In April 2015, she received from her father the recently released key-X, in fact, the very first of all! 🙂

Two years later, Marina presented her undergraduate thesis at FATEC, where she spoke about the importance of Assistive Technology for the autonomy of people who, like her, have Cerebral Palsy or other motor disorders.
