Smartnav4, a mouse for using the computer with total independence

Fundació Miquel Valls, Lake Software

The Fundació Miquel Valls, through its Support Product Bank, offers this device that allows people to use their computer with total autonomy.

SMARTNAV4 is the fourth generation of a mouse that helps people with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other mobility-impairing diseases to use a computer. With the help of the integrated Dwell Clicking software, and a free on-screen keyboard created by Lake Software, THE SMARTNAV4 works by means of a small sticker made of reflectant material placed anywhere on the face and a sensor located on the screen. The user can control the mouse pointer on the screen with head movements in totally hands-free fashion. People with ALS can therefore write emails, answer text messages and do anything on the computer totally independently.
