HEADMASTER PLUS (MODEL HM-3P)
--- DISCONTINUED. (Verified 02/2007) RETAINED IN DATABASE FOR REFERENCE. --- The HeadMaster Plus, model HM-3P, is a headpointing mouse emulator system designed to replace a computer mouse and keyboard for people with upper extremity disabilities who have good head control. An ultrasonic transmitting unit sits atop the monitor and sends signals to a lightweight headset that the user wears. The device translates changes in the user's head position into changes in the cursor's position on the screen. This positioning is relative; i.e., the user does not have to center his head directly in front of the screen. Lightly puffing into a tube connected to the headset is equivalent to pressing the mouse button. Mouse clicks can also be made by activating an external switch, dwelling in software such as WiViK (see separate entry), or using voice recognition programs (programs not included). The Headmaster system is compatible with the Macintosh mouse, a two- or three-button IBM serial mouse, or the IBM PS/2 mouse. COMPATIBILITY: For use on Macintosh and IBM and compatible computers. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: A 512 Kilobyte or Mac Plus for Apple systems; hard disk and printer are optional. OPTIONS: Remote adapter, laptop adapter, cable for Sun Workstation, and a set of 10 extra puff tubes. DIMENSIONS: 5.5 x 5.13 x 1.5 inches. WEIGHT: 5 pounds. WARRANTY: This product has a one-year manufacturer's warranty. Extended warranty options are available.
