The user controls the computer with an external keyboard (see associated tip) and a head mouse. The head mouse sits on top of the computer screen (see Photo 4) and is controlled with an IR transmitter that sits on a headset. A sip/puff control that also sits on the headset provides the click function.
The headset is suspended from the ceiling by a cord.
At first the headset was always lying on the desk and was in the way for the user. It was difficult for him to grip it and put it on. Occasionally he dropped the headset on the floor, causing a loose contact. Since suspending it from the ceiling it has been much easier to put it on and the headset has not broken a single time.
The user likes plain old assistive devices and takes very good care of them.
