The LCD design used by Improv Electronics in creating the Boogie Board has won the company an award for its accessibility for disabled people.

An Accessible Design gong has been given to firm's parent Kent Displays by Japanese organisation King Jim due to its ease of usage for those who are deaf or partially sighted.

In the latter case, the clarity of the black and white writing on the tablet screen has been praised as being useful for those with eyesight problems.

The award stated that in "many cases" products ignore the needs of people with disabilities, something the electronic whiteboard technology used in the Boogie Board has addressed.

It comes after the launch of four updated Boogie Boards on May 31st, with the devices featuring a range of new accessories.

These were the Boogie Board 10.5 LCD Writing Tablet, the Boogie Board 8.5 LCD Writing Tablet for Binders, the Boogie Board Message Center and the Boogie Board 8.5 LCD Writing Tablet (custom Brookstone design).

In the case of the 10.5, it has a larger writing surface, something that may aid visibility for the partially sighted.
