Smartbox uses STYLISTIC Tablets to improve the communication of people with disabilities

"Fujitsu tablets give people what they want: thin, lightweight, easy to manage and with a battery that lasts all day. Their robustness and reliability ensure that our customers will no longer be without a voice."

Dougal Hawes Business Development Director, Smartbox

Smartbox is using Fujitsu tablets to support its latest range of Grid Pad solutions, which enable disabled people without speech to communicate.

The customer

Smartbox has been designing and manufacturing assistive technology solutions for over 15 years. Its latest generation of software, Grid 3, has been designed to improve the lives of people with disabilities. The company works closely with the people who use its technology in order to respond to their needs and to make assistive technology quicker and easier than ever before.

The challenge

Smartbox needs high-performing, cost-effective tablets to act as the hardware platform underlying its Grid Pad solutions. It is constantly evaluating the market to ensure it has the best available technology.

The solution

After testing the two latest Fujitsu Stylistic tablets, Smartbox purchased several hundred units which it has specially adapted to provide additional amplification, alternative input and the ability to attach the device to a wheelchair.

The benefit

  • High performance means the Fujitsu devices can run Smartbox’s software effortlessly
  • All-day battery life so users can continue to communicate without having to recharge when outside the home
  • Multiple ports support alternative access methods
  • Global warranty support provides peace of mind
