Helen is an alarm clock, created for the deaf-blind user, without compromising the small size and ease of operation that other Bones products are known for.
The credit card sized Helen will ensure the deaf-blind user gets up on time in the morning. For the heavy sleepers, an external pillow shaker that connects to Helen is included.During the day, users can always check the time and with the integrated timer one can set reminders perhaps for use in the kitchen or for public transportation.
Helen does not use fragile watch hands, but instead Helen offers the user very tactile and big buttons. Simple but efficient vibration signals announce the time and the last adjustment that was made, allowing the deaf-blind user to set the time and create alarms independently.
In addition to the vibration signals, a voice announcement can be activated, for the benefit of an instructor during training sessions.
On the upper part of the device, five buttons with different shapes can be distinguished.
In the lower third of the device is the speaker, tangible through small holes.
At the top end of the unit, there are two openings without function and one small button - the selector button.
Of the five front buttons, the top button (the smallest on the front side), the one in the middle (curved at) and the bottom one (with a tactile X) are needed to query and set the time and the two buttons on the right and left side of the center key (with tactile arrows to the left and right) are needed to turn the alarm on and off.
Request time or alarm time. The readout is done via short pushes of three buttons:
- at the top for the hours
- in the center for 10-minute blocks
- at the bottom for single minutes
The following units are used:
- Long vibration-joints for 5 units
- Short ones for single units
- With zeros, such as hour 0 and minute 0, nothing will be read out.
Helen works only in 24-hour operation.
