The Jouse+ is an advanced joystick-operated plug-and-play solution. Just move the precision joystick with your mouth, cheek, chin or tongue to control your computer, mobile device*, switch-controlled device or AAC system. The further you move the joystick, the faster the cursor travels. You can perform right-click, left-click and double-click
actions with the sip and puff switches built into the Jouse+.
The Jouse+ requires minimal action. The cursor movement is fast, smooth and very accurate, which is great for drawing and playing games.
The Jouse+ will mount to almost any desktop, wheelchair or bedframe. It also includes mounting options for ancillary equipment such as
microphones, switches and Web-cams.
The Jouse+ comes with two types of mouth pieces; a disposable type
for multiple users and a rigid, more comfortable type in two different
lengths for full-time users. The Jouse+ comes with 20 disposable
mouthpieces, as well as two long and five medium-length permanent
The Jouse+ comes with built-in support for two external switches. If the user cannot perform a sip or puff function (e.g., if they're on a respirator), they can use a switch as an alternative. A saliva filter for enhanced hygiene in additional to the replaceable and washable sip and puff tubes and tube holder. A spare filter unit is also included.
Included with your Jouse+ is JoyWrite. JoyWrite is a software technology that emulates a computer keyboard. With JoyWrite, the Jouse+ becomes an even more efficient and effective keyboard/mouse alternative.
JoyWrite lets you quickly enter text and control the text cursor. You can also combine JoyWrite with word prediction/completion software or other writing assistants for even faster and easier text input.
JoyWrite allows you to enter characters using combinations of sips and puffs, similar to the Jouse+'s built-in Morse code capability. However, JoyWrite is a total keyboard alternative that offers a simpler way to enter characters and gives you full control over the text cursor. It does this by using consistent sip-puff inputs at nine different joystick positions.
