Tobii Dynavox in brief
We are a team of enthusiasts who are passionate about helping people with special needs. Our drive and passion is to really make a difference. Every day, we work diligently and are focused on creating solutions that help people communicate with their environment, thereby living a richer and more independent life.
For us, it is all about improving people's lives through strengthening their personal integrity.
Power to be You
Our solutions do not only benefit users, but also the people around them – parents, siblings, grandparents as well as caregivers and others that are encountered during daily life and spare time.
Our motto is "Power to Be You", which can be said to mean that we want to help our users to unleash their inner strength and potential. Our goal is that our solutions will give users a sense that they can decide what to say and do on their own terms. Ultimately, we want to enhance the users' ability to be part of society and live a freer life.
Solutions for a better life
Our custom-designed solutions are easy to use and built to stand up to the rigours of day-to-day life. Even though our products are technically complex, especially our eye-controlled computers that are almost "magical", we place a lot of energy on ensuring that they are easy to use – for the user as well as caregivers and relatives. Technology should serve only as a means to reach a goal.
We do not make "simple apps”. From experience, we know that they often lead to users being static in their communication. Instead, unlike other providers, we offer communication solutions that every individual can have for life – to grow and develop with.
Whether you need a speech generating device, computer control or solutions for special education, we strive to develop products that really work and are actually used.
Part of a bigger family
Tobii Dynavox, part of the Tobii Group [STO: TOBII], is the leading provider of touch and eye tracking based assistive technology hardware and software for those with communication and mobility challenges. We have helped thousands of individuals with disabilities such as aphasia, autism, cerebral palsy, ALS, muscular dystrophy, Rett syndrome and spinal cord injury lead fuller and richer lives. Tobii Dynavox stands at the forefront of assistive technology and special education, delivering the most advanced, effective and empowering communication and computer access tools available.
Mayer-Johnson and special education
Also a member of the Tobii Dynavox family is Mayer-Johnson. Mayer-Johnson is best known for Boardmaker and Boardmaker Online, a special education software and web-based subscription used as a publishing and editing tool to create interactive, symbol-based educational activities and materials for special education students. Our proprietary Picture Communication Symbols (PCS®) are used in both our Boardmaker software line and our Tobii Dynavox line of speech generating devices.
Tobii Pro and Tobii Tech
Part of the Tobii Group are also Tobii Pro and Tobii Tech. Tobii Pro work with researchers and scientists to study human behavior with eye tracking. Tobii Pro work together with OEMs to integrate eye tracking into their own products.
Even though Tobii Pro, Tech and Tobii Dynavox have slightly different focus areas we share a lot of resources. We all share our extensive knowledge and experience in eye tracking and gaze interaction, which we like to call “the Tobii advantage”. Hand in hand with our knowledge and experience of eye tracking is our extensive patent portfolio.
