HeadMouse Extreme

Wireless Head Controlled Mouse
Item # Product Description Photo Price


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.


  • Comfortable: The HeadMouse will track the user's head with the user located in any comfortable viewing position relative to the computer display.
  • 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 (CAD).
  • 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 Orby Switch. 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 HeadMouse Extreme.
  • Onscreen keyboard options: When used with an on-screen keyboard such as SofType. HeadMouse provides head-controlled access to all of the full range of functions for both keyboard and mouse, and to thousands of standard personal computer applications including Internet access.
  • Access for Alternative and Augmentative Communication Devices: HeadMouse Extreme provides reliable head-controlled access toaugmentative communication devices that provide speech and environmental control. HeadMouse Extreme integrates conveniently with systems from a variety of suppliers.
