We are happy to assist with your order
In dealing with Zyteq for the majority of our Speech Generating Devices you are connecting directly with the exclusive, appointed dealer for these manufacturers. This means that apart from importing the products, we have a close relationship with the developers, designers, trainers, engineers and other staff in these companies. We have direct access to technical and support information and we are in frequent contact with specialist professionals and management. For our Australian customers this provides a direct line of access to the manufacturers and a local resource, being Zyteq, with a wealth of information and answers to your questions. If we don't know the answer we know exactly who to contact. Zyteq is the exclusive dealer for Toby Churchill Ltd. (LightWRITER, TCL micro voice amplifier), Jabbla (Mobi 2, Tellus 4 and 5, Smart 2 and 3, Zingui, Mind Express), Logan Technologies (Proxalker, ProxPad), Sensory Software (Grid 2, Grid Pad family, PowerBox Motion, Powerbox 7), Alea (Intelligaze), Abilia (Control Omni, Control PROG, PROGress star etc) and Zabonne (Zavox reo). These companies are not simply suppliers; they are the manufacturers and have designed, developed and supported their products over a relatively long period. They are specialist companies devoting their work to assistive technology.
Zyteq also offers products from other companies including Ablenet, Pretorian and ZYGO-USA.
Sale or return
Some items are not available for trial. These are smaller, low cost or low support items which do not fit into our "trial program'. Please read on regarding VOICE AMPLIFIERS, which are not offered in this category. Voice amplifiers are offered in our trial program, and we prefer that they are trialled with a Speech Pathologist supervising the use and appropriateness.
Selected items are available on a 'sale or return' basis. Low cost products are not available for short-term trial through our usual 'loan/trial program'. Instead we offer them on a 'sale or return' basis. This means they can be purchased and a new complete kit or item is supplied, and if it is unsuitable it can be returned within 14 days. (Think of the trial period as 10 days to permit adequate postage time). A refund will be provided less the original freight cost and less any 're-stocking fee' applicable. A re-stocking fee applies if packaging or components require replacing. If the device and accessories are returned in resalable condition, a refund will be provided less the original freight charge. This provides the opportunity to try the device while having the option to return it if it is unsuitable (with the exception of voice amplifiers....please read on)
VOICE AMPLIFIERS are not offered in this category. While they may be purchased and returned the issues of 'used' microphones (and windsheilds) presents a hygiene issue. If voice amplifiers are purchased on a 'sale or return' basis we reserve the right to refuse return of the microphone if it is not returned in resalable condition. This aspect of the payment will not be refunded, and the microphone returned the the purchaser. Our loan equipment is disinfected between uses and it is "used' equipment. New equipment must be new.
VOICE AMPLIFIER trials. Please be assured that a voice amplifier trial is very worthwhile. A Speech Pathologist can assist first with advice about whether this is the appropriate solution to a voice disorder. An alternative treatment approach may be recommended. Although a voice amplifier may appear to be a simple piece of equipment, it does require correct positioning and adjustment and consideration of when, where and how it will be used. A Speech Pathologist can assist with these aspects of using the aid, for a more successful outcome. In our experience voice amplifiers purchased without Speech Pathologist support by private individuals and without due consideration and trial find themselves returning the equipment. We would prefer to avoid these unsuccessful experiences by re-directing interest in the voice amplifiers to a trial.
HEAD POINTERS: Head pointers are not available through our trial scheme. The headpointer can be purchased through the "sale or return" option, however as a 'worn' product hygiene issues are again a concern if the item is returned. If components are not in "new' condition, the head-pointer cannot be returned. Elements can be individually replaced such as the chin cup, or velcro straps. If elements need to be replaced the cost of these items will be deducted from the refund.
