AccuPoint

InvoTek, Inc.

price to be announced

due for release in fall 2007

http://www.
invotek.org/

AccuPoint head tracker is the first head tracking technology that actually knows where your head is pointing and keeps the computer cursor aligned with your head. We call this "absolute" head tracking. No more bouncing the cursor off of the side of the display to realign it to your head! If you look off of the computer screen and then return, the cursor is still perfectly aligned. If you leave the computer and return minutes later the cursor is still perfectly aligned with your head!

InvoTek designed AccuPoint with the needs of people with disabilities in mind. It automatically recognizes tremor movements and ignores them. The amount of head movement required for moving the cursor across the entire computer display is adjustable from lots of movement to very tiny movement. And InvoTek is working with leading assistive technology manufacturers to ensure that AccuPoint works seamlessly with augmentative communication systems.

AccuPoint comes with an easy-to-use integrated on-screen keyboard. It also works with other onscreen keyboards like Click-n-Type. It has two programmable switch ports for inputting left and right mouse clicks via your favorite switch type (such as a sip-and-puff pneumatic switch), or you can use your favorite dwell clicking software. The user wears a small cluster of dots that AccuPoint uses to determine head position. While we anticipate that most people will use the AccuPoint system for head tracking, we can track anything that the cluster is attached to.

HeadMouse Extreme

Origin Instuments
$995
http://www.orin.com/
access/headmouse/

The HeadMouse® sensor replaces the standard desktop computer mouse for people who cannot use their hands. The HeadMouse is a device that translates the movements of a user's head into directly proportional movements of the computer mouse pointer. The HeadMouse is a wireless optical sensor which tracks a tiny and disposable target that is placed on the user's forehead or glasses. When this capability is combined with an on-screen keyboard, such as SofType, or KeyStrokes the HeadMouse can completely replace the functions of a conventional keyboard. On-screen keyboards provide an image of the keys on the computer display, with key selection made by positioning the mouse pointer over a key. The actual key press is implemented by dwelling over that key for a set period of time or by using an adaptive switch. A Remote Switch Transmitter is available for wireless transfer of adaptive switch inputs from a wheelchair to a desktop computer.The HeadMouse will track the user's head with the user located in any comfortable viewing position relative to the computer display. Resolution of the HeadMouse is sufficient to allow a user to control the mouse pointer down to the minimum resolution of the computer display, the picture element (pixel). This precision allows a user to perform tasks such as drawing or Computer Aided Design (CAD). When the HeadMouse is used with an on-screen keyboard, all the standard personal computer applications are available to the user who has a disability.
