Uniden has developed a 3-in-1 phone system for the visual and hearing impaired. An optional splashproof pendant that can be activated in an emergency is available to add to the phone set.

The SSE37+1 includes a digital corded telephone and cordless handset that are compatible with the wireless pendant.

To simplify the calling process for users, the cordless phone features large buttons and extra loud audio controls in addition to a big display screen and called ID display. It also comes with a text-to-speech function that announces the dialled number and can read and announce the name of the caller. The system is hearing-aid compatible.  As an added convenience, there is an integrated digital answering machine with remote access and slow playback for easier listening to messages.

The phone can be bundled with the emergency SOS pendant that has been pre-programmed with five numbers that automatically moves onto the next number until it is picked up.
