Access Switches by Saltillo
For any device using one or more single input switches to operate a communication aid, toy or environmental control

Suitable for any device that uses one or more single input switches (standard 3.5mm plug), Saltillo Access Switches can be used to operate a communication aid, toy or environmental control.

Measuring 2.5 inches in diameter, and emitting an audible "click" when activated, these switches require only a light touch. Constructed out of a high impact plastic, they are available in bright eye-catching colors and carry a limited lifetime warranty.

To provide a visible cue, images or symbols may be placed under the clear plastic cover which easily attaches to the top of the switch. Favorite photos can also be placed under the cover for a personal touch.

PC-53280 Access Wobble Switch
Easily actuated, but easily moves with sweeping erratic movements

The Access Wobble Switch can be easily adapted for a variety of uses in one's environment.

Use Velcro or dual-lock to mount the Access Wobble Switch to one of the mounting plates found in this catalogue or on many other surfaces.

Evoluent Mouse-Friendly & Left-Handed Keyboard
The full function keyboard that makes room for your mouse
Evoluent Mouse-Friendly & Left-Handed Keyboard
• The general layout of the standard keyboard was designed before the introduction of the mouse.
• Since number entry was one of the primary functions of the keyboard at that time, having the numeric keypad on the right side made sense.
• Nowadays, most users use the mouse far more than the numeric keypad, so the keypad now occupies the space where the mouse should be.
• The Evoluent Mouse-Friendly Keyboard has a more sensible layout with the numeric keypad on the left so your mouse may be much closer on the right.
