WARNING
A very small percentage of the public, due to an existing condition, may
experience epileptic seizures or momentary loss of consciousness
when viewing certain types of flashing colours or patterns, especially on
television. While the InnoTab® 2 Learning App Tablet does not contribute
to any additional risks, we do recommend that parents supervise their
children while they play video games. If your child experiences dizziness,
altered vision, disorientation, or convulsions, discontinue use immediately
and consult your doctor. Please note that focusing on an LCD screen
at close range for a prolonged period of time may cause fatigue or
discomfort. We recommend that children take a 15-minute break for
every hour of play.
