Key2Enable – Accessibility and (r)evolution, Key-X – Multifunctional Smart Keyboard

 

Multifunctional Smart Keyboard Key-X

The device that redefines the inclusion of people with disabilities.

Key-X allows people with any motor impairment to use any computer, smartphone or tablet with just eleven touch-sensitive keys, which can be activated even by the blink of an eye.

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.
