HeadMouse Extreme replaces the standard computer mouse for
people who cannot use or have limited use of their hands when
controlling a computer or
alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) device. The
HeadMouse translates natural movements of a user's head into
directly proportional movements of the computer mouse pointer,
so as the user moves their head the mouse pointer on the screen
also moves. The HeadMouse has a wireless optical sensor which
tracks a tiny disposable target that is worn by the user in a
convenient location on their forehead, glasses, hat, etc. It
works just like a computer mouse, with the mouse pointer being
moved by the motion of the user's head.
The HeadMouse will track the user's head with the user
located in any comfortable viewing position relative to the
Precision: Resolution of the HeadMouse is precise to
allow a user to control the mouse pointer down to the
minimum, pixel perfect, resolution of the computer display.
This precision allows a user to perform such tasks as
drawing, gaming, graphics work and Computer Aided Design
Easy plug-and-play and USB compatible:
HeadMouse Extreme connects to the computer or
augmentative communication device through a USB port and
operates using standard mouse drivers. No special
software is required. The HeadMouse is powered by
the host device, over the USB connection. The integrated
electronic tilt sensor automatically adapts to even the most
unusual mounting requirements.
The HeadMouse Extreme emulates a USB computer mouse so no
special software is required for operations.
Use with adaptive switches, switch software and switch transmitters:
Mouse button click operations can be performed via an
adaptive switch connected directly to the HeadMouse Extreme
via 3.5mm plug connector; or by independent mouse click
software that performs the click operation when the user
"dwells" on a specific screen location. Compatible
adaptive switches include
In mouse dwell-to-click software, such as
Dragger, mouse clicks are performed by positioning the
pointer and dwelling for a selectable period of time.
HeadMouse Extreme also comes with a built-in infrared
receiver that provides optional wireless connection for
adaptive switches using the
Beam Wireless Switch Transmitter. The Beam Wireless
Switch Transmitter lets users, for example, connect
adaptive switches wirelessly from a wheelchair to the
Onscreen keyboard options:
