 Quick Glance

  • Compatibility:   Windows
  • Estimated Price:  $2495 (5% discount for cash/prepay)
    Shipping is $25 for UPS standard delivery (2-3 weeks).
  • Availability:  Purchasing Information

Quick Glance is a new assistive technology device which provides an efficient alternative to the mouse. It moves the cursor according to the user's eye movements.  The system requires that a person be able to hold their head still while using it, and that they be able to control their eye movements. "Clicks" can be performed with a switch or a slow eye blink. The system works with most eyeglasses, but can occasionally require an adjustment.

Quick Glance runs under Windows 95 and can be used in conjunction with any Windows software.  When combined with an on-screen keyboard, the user has complete accessibility to all Windows features--without lifting a finger!  Voice dictation software can also be used with the Quick Glance System resulting in efficient, hands-free operation for both text entry and pointing operations.

We offer a 30 day money back guarantee. We want each system we sell to be a success story, so if it does not work out for you, you may return it postage paid, and we will refund your money (minus shipping charge of $25-$50).

HeadMouse for Desktops & Portables

  • PC and Mac Compatible
  • Estimated Prices:  
    • HeadMouse Sensor: $1795.00
    • HeadMouse Bundle: $1995.00
    • HeadMouse for Portables: $1695.00
  • Available Direct

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, 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 Interface is available for wireless transfer of adaptive switch inputs from a wheelchair to the computer.
