All-Turn-It Spinner

The All-Turn-It spinner is a fun way to include students with disabilities in regular classroom activities even if they don't understand the curriculum content.

 

The switch-activated All-Turn-It Spinner, with built-in external switch jack, enables random selections for choosing groups or playing games of chance like bingo. Also a fun alternative to rolling dice.

BigKeys LX Rigid Keyguard

AbleNet rigid keyguards are made of durable clear acrylic and easily attach to the top of the keyboard. A rigid keyguard provides a barrier between the user’s hand and the keyboard enabling them to rest their hands on the keyboard without activating any keys on the keyboard. Small holes in the rigid keyguard allow the user to activate individual keys on the keyboard with a finger press.

THIS RIGID KEYGUARD IS COMPATIBLE WITH:

Tracker Pro

TrackerPro is a computer input device that takes the place of a mouse for people with little or no hand movement. Simply plug it in and it works just like a mouse (no additional software required). Anything that can be done with a regular hand mouse can be done by using TrackerPro (in conjunction with one of many clicking solutions).

It is a high-resolution intelligent camera in a solid aluminum enclosure, making it smooth, reliable, stand-alone, robust, accurate and easy to mount. TrackerPro tracks a small dot that you can place on your forehead, glasses or the rim of a hat. Tracker is not a toy meant for the gaming market and then sold to people with disabilities as a secondary thought; it is dedicated assistive technology designed exclusively for people with limited use of their hands.

TrackerPro 2

The NEW TrackerPro 2 head mouse provides reliable hands-free mouse control for individuals who are unable to use a traditional computer mouse. The smooth and pixel precise cursor control of TrackerPro 2 opens a world of possibilities for the user. An individual can use communication software, browse the internet, read a digital book, type an email, or just about anything else that can be done on a computer, tablet, or phone.

  • Updated electronics and tracking camera
  • Compact and modern design
  • Two integrated switch jacks for left and right click
  • Improved mounting hardware

TrackerPro 2 is plug-and-play and uses the standard mouse drivers already installed on your device. To get started, connect TrackerPro 2 to a computer, tablet, or phone with a USB Type A port. A small reflective dot is placed on the forehead, nose, or glasses of the user and small head movements control the mouse cursor movement. For left and right clicks, attach two switches (not included) or use a dwell selection software for automatic clicking (not included). 

TrackerPro 2 is compatible with most Windows, macOS, Google Chrome, Android, iOS 13, and iPadOS 13 devices.
