Dear ADMouse, let me tell you that after installing the mouse so my dad can start using it, he began to repeat after every 5’ of using it "this is fantastic!!!" the truth of the matter behind this is that you were right, it change the way of living and for him accessing the computer. Diego.. Hello, my name is Matthias and I am 36 years old and I have motor disabilities and I am aware about the strengths of the admouse as I was looking at your Web and your video and it is just as happens to the man who cannot handle the common mouse and I saw that it was easy for him the use of the admouse. The AdMouse is fabulous, changed my life and my sitting position. I had pain from contractures of the left shoulder and now by using this new Mouse I change my sitting position, no more pain and I don't have that much involuntary movements and now I can control my body. So I would like to congratulate the people who invented this excellent device. Matthias ….. New Adaptive Mouse: The AdMouse! Computer/tablet access can be difficult for people with Parkinson’s, Cerebral Palsy, arthritis, and other physical disabilities, so at IPAT we are always looking for new and better assistive technologies to aid in this endeavor. Recently we tried the AdMouse, a plug’n’play mouse from Branco. This adapted pointing device allows one to perform all of the same […] [More….]

Cases

Cases using AdMouse The first case a middle-aged woman with mild mental retardation/moderate and very little fine motricity in upper limbs. The second case, a woman, similar age with motricity restricted by a stroke that left her in a wheelchair, although with an intellectual capacity greater than the first (college education). Case one is working in the spatial location (screen) and the correspondence of movements of the cursor at the same time working on the intellectual stage. There were problems of travel of the screen, with and without obstacles and then association of objects. This included for drag-and-drop functions after four months of classes arrives to control the basic functions of the mouse: Draw, select, activate, drag and paint in the MSPaint program in more than satisfactory way. Case two, the main problem it due to the change of plane, from vertical to the horizontal screens AdMouse, but was introduced so that she can use your mouse while looking at the screen. With this person, in a wheelchair and with only one arm semi-skillful we realized that we had set the AdMouse fixed to the table, using Velcro. The first task was to ensure that recognize the buttons on the device and to develop the touch just to turn it on and began to recognize the times of pressure required to achieve the shift to the desired distance. Using ColorTec BigKey Keyboard G. is an 8-year-old girl diagnosed with Chronic Non-Evolutionary Encephalopathy. It presents an ataxic symptom type, requiring the assistance of an adult to perform the different activities of here daily life. Evidence of muscle instability and weakness at the level of the shoulder, elbow and hands. It manages to dissociate the index finger. She attends 4th grade, in a public school, with an integrative teacher. Performs kinesiology therapies, occupational therapy and speech therapy. She enjoys the interaction with others and her verbal comprehension allows her to participate her daily life and carry out the different oral slogans proposed during playful-communicative situations. Her oral expression is severely compromised due to the presence of the neuromuscular involvement of her basic motor picture and the presence of concomitant verbal dyspraxia is suspected. One of the fundamental objectives of its treatment is that the girl manages to communicate in the most functional way possible with her environment: when she wants, with whomever she wants and wherever she wants. For this, one of the goals is to find tools that facilitate access to reading and writing and accompany it in its acquisition process, considering that literacy provides the greatest freedom of expression to people with important challenges in oral communication. Given its difficulties in accessing manual typing, as well as the use of a conventional keyboard or mouse, we proceed to evaluate and implement the use of: This keyboard connects via USB (plug and play) to your Windows notebook in which you have downloaded a software with Voice/Sound output. This Software enables G. to have Voice/Sound feedback from her written documents, allowing her to strengthen self-monitoring and self-correction. After 2 months of treatment in an interdisciplinary way with Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy and its integrative teacher it is observed that the girl manages to locate and satisfactorily press the vowels, the M and the P, being able to form syllables with these graphemes as well as bisyllabic words with the combination of them. She could also type her name on the keyboard.  It is observed that in this process were of great help: -The keys classified by colors (one color for the vowels, another for the consonants, for the numbers, etc.) of the Colortec/Bigkey keyboard that favored the identification and the faster location of the letters; -The use of the finger channeler, which allowed G. to support his hand to obtain greater stability and then with his finger press the desired key, increasing the accuracy in his selections and decreasing typos due to his tremors (*). This led to a decrease in situations of frustration that occurred previously when she inadvertently pressed unwanted or several keys at the same time and encouraged motivation in the use of this method of access by the girl; (*) We also used Windows' own Accessibility Settings for the keyboard, which makes it possible to ignore repeated keystrokes and change the repetition speed of the keyboard. -Add the use of the communication software with output-output of voice mentioned, which allows to have the feedback or auditory feedback of your written documents. These support resources have given G. greater autonomy both for access to the computer and in the process of learning literacy, giving her in turn the opportunity to achieve a more functional communication with his environment.
