Computer workstation with screen-based keyboard and head mouse. The transmitter is a small self-adhesive reflector which sits on the user and the receiver sits on top of the screen. The receiver reads the movements of the reflector and moves the mouse cursor in the same way. The mouse clicks with an automatic click. Next to the screen is a document holder that can also be used to make notes by holding a pen in the mouth.
