That page could do with an update. If people post here I'll add the
info to that page.
So far as I know the first commercially-released emdebian product was
TobyChurchill's SL40 lightwriter:
which has grip inside it. (earlier models used Familiar).
It's a communicator (display and speech synthesiser for people who
can't speak). As a medical device it has to pass relatively stringent
physical and electrical requirements.
