Product Description: 

HeadMouse replaces the standard computer mouse for people who cannot use or have limited use of their hands. It translates natural movements of a user's head into a directly proportional mouse pointer movement. HeadMouse has a wireless optical sensor which tracks a tiny disposable target worn by the user on his/her forehead, glasses, or hat. 

Main Features: 

  • Provides hands-free access to a computer, tablet, or Speech Generating Device (SGD).
  • Tracks head movement with the user located anywhere in front of his/her computer display.
  • Works in any lighting environment – from complete darkness to full sun.
  • High tracking resolution, pixel-precise control available to perform such tasks as drawing, photo editing, graphic illustration, and Computer Aided Design (CAD).
  • Connects to a computer, tablet, or speech generating device through a USB port and operates using standard mouse drivers.
  • Integrated tilt sensor automatically adapts to any mounting orientation.
