Adaptive Switches for PageBotTM

Options and Resource List

Please be aware that the PageBot has been discontinued.

The Kindle app running on an Amazon tablet or regular computer can be used with a variety of access methods.

Adaptive switches are available that can be operated by almost any muscle that a particular user can conveniently and reliably use. These can include muscles of the fingers, hands, arms, feet, head, mouth, or tongue. Advanced styles of adaptive switches can include sip-and-puff, voice recognition, eye blink, eye-movement, and even brain waves. Adaptive switches employ a wide range of technologies and they are available in variety of colors, shapes and sizes.

For some users, selecting the best switch can be challenging. Before deciding on a particular type of switch, consider that:

  • Switch actuation should be reliable, repeatable and comfortable for the user.
  • The mounting and positioning of the device being accessed can influence the choice of a switch. For example, the best switch for use in bed might be different than the best switch for use from a wheelchair.

Origin Instruments currently offers Sip/Puff switches and our Orby button switches.
