Description
In addition to the head mouse (see associated tip) the user controls the computer with an extra sip/puff control. Both sip/puff controls sit on the same headset. Using the joybox (see associated tip) and its software he can choose the two functions he wants to operate with the sip/puff control. The device can be set up to control an individual key or a string of keys.

Users comments
His brother helped him mount the extra sip/puff control on the headset of the other sip/puff control. At first he had one control on each side, but he found that it was better to have them on the same side.
