Have Questions about Upgrading?

When Do I Ship My Polaris to HIMS?

After you make your purchase, HIMS will contact you with instructions on when and where to ship your Polaris. 

How Long Will I Be Without My Polaris?

From the time we receive your Polaris until the time you receive your upgraded BrailleSense 6 is approximately one month. This does not factor in holidays which may affect wait times.

Will I Be Given A Shipping Label?

You are responsible for shipping your Polaris to HIMS. We prefer that you ship with UPS, however you can use your carrier of choice.

What Happens If My Braille Cells Are Weak?

HIMS will evaluate your braille cells to ensure that moving them to a BrailleSense 6 makes sense. If we find issues we will inform you, and if the braille cells are badly damaged we may issue a refund.

The BrailleSense 6 is the most powerful braille notetaker in the world. Designed with the fastest hardware and powered by Android 10, it is the ultimate notetaker.
