Which barrier-free hörbert is suitable for whom?
Accessible model: 3-buttons
Your family member’s motoric skills are limited, e.g. due to rheumatism or spastic paralysis? The ability to see is reduced due to a visual impairment or cataracts? We have developed this model for mild motoric disabilities. 3 large buttons control 3 playlists. Each time the button is pressed, hörbert moves forward one track in the corresponding playlist. As with the standard hörbert, the 3 playlists can be played individually as desired. Either assign a single title to each button or play many titles on each button. Just as it is best for you and your needs.
Accessible model: 1-button
Your family member can’t cope with several buttons and is quickly confused by too many buttons? Due to a more pronounced degree of disability, the operation must be reduced to the simplest? Then this model is just right for you. 1 button controls a playlist. With each press of the button, hörbert plays the next track in the playlist.
hörbert - Accessible model for external push-buttons
An impaired person can only operate devices with the help of an even larger push-button or a control unit? All our hörbert variants – the model with 9 buttons and the models with one or three buttons can be equipped with one or two jack connections. With an external button or a control unit hörbert can be switched on and off, with a second button titles or playlists can be advanced. The functions of the buttons are widely configurable. hörbert can thus also be integrated into existing systems for supporting people with disabilities.
