The Dipsy Switch is a motion sensitive switch designed for use by individuals with severe physical disabilities or spinal cord injury. This tilt-sensitive switch can be attached to the head, arm, finger or any appropriate object and can be activated by body movements such as tilting the head forward, tilting the head back, or lifting a finger. It can also be attached to objects such as a rocking chair. The switch is activated by a 30-degree tilt to limit false activation. It can also be adjusted for sensitivity by increasing or decreasing its mounting angle. It can be plugged into any communication aid, environmental control or battery-adapted device that has a standard 1/8-inch jack. The switch comes with a headband and two finger mounts, which can also be used to secure the cord to the headband. An idea guide is also included. DIMENSIONS: 0.25 x 0.25 x 1 inch. WEIGHT: 1 ounce.
