Re: Head-mouse for Mac

Hi Sven:
AssistiveWare makes a powerful and flexible onscreen keyboard for the Mac called KeyStrokes; see http://www.assistiveware.com/keystrokes.php.
EnableMart sells KeyStrokes bundled with the HeadMouse Extreme, which is a very good wireless headpointing mouse; see http://www.enablemart.com/Headmouse-Extreme-Deluxe-Bundle. (They do handle international orders; the system would be about 1638 CHF plus shipping/handling).
If your friend would prefer an eyegaze system, and if price is not a concern, the Eyegaze Edge is available for about 9500 CHF; see http://www.assistivetechnologies.com/detail.asp?product=54868. I haven't worked with this, though, so I can't vouch for its usability.

Has anyone experiences or recommendations for a Head-Mouse-Interface for
Mac OS?

I'm asked by a man having ALS/MND, he would prefer continuing using his Mac.
ALS/MND is fast evolving and he can do every day less.

about ALS/MND:

thnx and regards
