AbleNet, Roseville, Minn, has released the improved Impulse Bluetooth Technology Access product, which features longer battery life, a sleek design, translated instructions for international distribution, and software updates, the company says.

The device offers 24-hour battery life, nearly double that of the previous 13-hour battery. The new design includes a curvaceous shape and repositioned charge jack to accommodate the new battery.

Designed for people with significant physical limitations, Impulse lets them use any muscle surface—face, jaw, neck, arm, leg, or others—to control their computer. The device is suitable for those with degenerative conditions such as ALS, MS, and MDA, and for anyone with physical limitations or paralysis.
