Head Master Plus

I’m a C3-C5 Quadriplegic with very little movement. If your able to move your head there are a few products to choose from…

Here is what I use…

I use a “Headmaster” to move my mouse. It has a sip/puff switch that I use to click. I wear the headmaster just like headphones, see picture. To type I use a Onscreen Keyboard. More Information below. This is what I’ve used for four years now. I’m a graphic designer and use the computer a lot.

There are a few products to choose from, here is a few of my favs.
