SAM is designed to provide adapted computer access for individuals with upper extremity disabilities. These modified pointing devices are designed for both "Adaptive" and "Non-Adaptive" software applications. The switch is a substitute for the track ball and can be operated with various parts of the body, such as hands, feet, knees, elbows, head, etc. It serves as a switch interface for special software "looking" for the mouse-click as single switch; and allows cooperative control of conventional software so that a friend, parent, or sibling can move the mouse, while the switch-user does all the clicking with his or her switch. It features a drag-lock function to eliminate the need to click and drag simultaneously. COMPATIBILITY: Versions are available for use with Mac or Widows compatible computers.
