Product Description: 

A joystick switch is a type of adaptive switch device used in place of a mouse on switch-enabled technology, such as smartphones, computers, toys, and video games. Instead of dragging a mouse or finger across a trackpad to click and navigate, users push/pull the joystick to select any element on a screen with a focus cursor. A joystick-based switch design is easy to grasp and eliminates the need for fine motor precision while operating a mouse.
