HeadMouse® Nano

Wireless Head Controlled Mouse

HeadMouse Nano

HeadMouse replaces the standard computer mouse for people who cannot use or have limited use of their hands. The HeadMouse translates natural movements of a user's head into directly proportional mouse pointer movement – move your head and the mouse pointer moves as well. The HeadMouse has a wireless optical sensor which tracks a tiny disposable target worn by the user on his/her forehead, glasses, or even a hat. It works just like a computer mouse, with the mouse pointer being controlled by head movement.

HeadMouse® Nano provides hands-free access to a computer, tablet or Speech Generating Device (SGD).

The HeadMouse will track head movement with the user comfortably located anywhere in front of his/her computer display. With HeadMouse Nano's high tracking resolution, pixel precise control is available to everyone. This precision allows a user to perform such tasks as drawing, photo editing, graphic illustration, and Computer Aided Design (CAD).

With HeadMouse Nano and an on-screen keyboard a person with disabilities can use any application – everything begins with access.

HeadMouse Nano connects to the computer, tablet or speech generating 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 tilt sensor automatically adapts to even the most unusual mounting orientations.

Selections and mouse button operations can be performed using a variety of adaptive switches, including Origin Instruments Sip/Puff Switch,  Orby,™ and mouse button software, such as Dragger.™ Using Dragger, mouse clicks are performed by positioning the pointer and dwelling for a selectable period of time. HeadMouse Nano has an integrated infrared receiver for wireless adaptive switches, using our available Beam.

When used with an on-screen keyboard such as SofType™ or KeyStrokes,™ HeadMouse provides access to the full range of keyboard and mouse functions.

Access to your internet connected device is access to the world.

  • Works in any lighting environment – from complete darkness to full sun.

Access for Speech Generating Devices

HeadMouse Nano provides reliable head-controlled access to speech genrating devices, (also known as alternative and augmentative communication devices) that provide speech and environmental control. HeadMouse Nano integrates conveniently with dedicated systems from a variety of suppliers – Prentke Romich, Tobii DynaVox, Jabbla, and others.

If an augmentative communication device can be accessed with a standard USB mouse then it should be accessible with a HeadMouse.
