HeadMouse Extreme replaces a standard computer mouse for people who cannot use their hands. It operates from the top of a computer monitor, laptop or AAC Device and measures the user's head movements. The wireless sensing technology employs near- infrared light to track a small disposable target that is placed on the user's forehead or glasses. HeadMouse Extreme provides a wide field of view and superior precision, supporting even graphics-intensive applications like drawing and computer-aided design.
When this capability is combined with an on-screen keyboard, such as SofType, the HeadMouse can completely replace the functions of a conventional keyboard providing head-controlled access to a range of computer applications including internet access.

SofType is a software utility, which replaces the functionality of a standard keyboard with a full featured on-screen keyboard. SofType can be accessed using a mouse emulator such as the HeadMouse®.
SofType is compatible with Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP. SofType works by generating an image of a keyboard on the screen. When a key is selected, the character represented by that key is sent to the active Windows application.
Predictive Word Completion
Variety of Keyboard Layouts
Auto-click (dwell selector)

Dragger™ is a utility for manipulating the left and right mouse buttons of a standard mouse or mouse emulator like the HeadMouse®.
Four sizes are available for the toolbar and they are selected using the configuration menu.
Single click control of most mouse functions
Can be performed in any windows environment
Time selection/activation adjustment
Jitter Box adjustment to compensate for user instability
HotZones™ allow Dragger™ buttons to be hidden by full windows applications (eg. games).
Dragger for Kids is just Dragger using the simplified toolbar. This reduced functionality toolbar is designed for young children or people with limited cognitive ability.
The configuration menu is still accessible by clicking the Dragger icon in the Windows System Tray. The Dragger for Kids toolbar and buttons can be displayed in four different sizes just like the regular Dragger toolbar.
