Body parts Overview


OnScreenBoard is a software for Windows by which you may create communication board for augmented communication completely hasslefree

Communication boards enable non-speaking people communication by symbols. They point at symbols, or teachers or parents point at symbols, allowing the patient to express what they mean.


Furthermore, communication boards can be used for practicing emerging speech and may support stroke patients re-learning language.

Communication Boards are most often printed on paper and then used as posters, but may also be saved as PDF files and be used on a computer screen.

OnScreenBoard contains around 10.000 wonderfully designed symbols which are motivating and clearly recognizable as they're designed like perspective photos.

To support patients who don't or barely speak YOURLANGUAGENAME, OnScreenBoard includes automatic translations. This way, e. g. the Russian, Turkish or Arabic translation will be shown next to the YOURLANGUAGENAME text.

Motivating Symbols

More and more patients discover beautiful symbols for themselves, and ergotherapists and teachers support them doing so. In OnScreenBoard, the icons of the icon library "twSymbols" are used. These were developed in co-operation with families of children with disabilities and grown-up ALS and brain stroke patients as well. Those symbols were tested in hospitals and were gladly adapted by patients.

Creating Surfaces

Ergotherapists and parents of handicapped children asked us so often for a solution on how to quickly combine "twSymbols" to create posters and to add text and colors, that we decided to create a software for this purpose. That's OnScreenBoard. We tried our very best to create an effective and still easy to operate program for you. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
