SAM (SWITCH-ADAPTED MOUSE) TRACKBALL & SAM (SWITCH-ADAPTED MOUSE) JOYSTICK
SAM Joystick and SAM track ball are designed to provide adapted computer access for individuals with upper extremity disabilities. These modified pointing devices are designed for both "Adaptive" and "Non-Adaptive" software applications under Windows. The switch is a substitute for the track ball or joystick and can be operated with various parts of the body , such as hands, feet, knees, elbows, head, etc. These SAM devices serve three purposes: First, they function as switch interfaces for special software "looking" for the mouse-click as single switch. Second, they allow cooperative control of conventional software so that a friend, parent, or sibling can move the mouse, while the switch-user does all the clicking with his or her switch. Finally, they allow connection of a switch to operate the CrossScanner software (see separate entry). Both models feature a drag-lock function to eliminate the need to click and drag simultaneously. COMPATIBILITY: Versions are available for use with Macintosh or IBM and compatible computers. OPTIONS: A USB/imac adapter is available for the SAM Trackball.
