Head Mouse Device

The head mouse is a hardware device that allows an individual with a physical disability the ability to access the computer using only head movements. The divice uses inferred technology to follow a metalic dot placed on the bridge of the users nose. When the user moves his or her head the mouse follows. The user can "click" the mouse button by dwelling on a target located on the screen for a designated amount of time.
