SAM Joystick and SAM track ball are designed to provide adapted computer access for individuals with upper extremity disabilities. These modified pointing devices are designed for both "Adaptive" and "Non-Adaptive" software applications under Windows. The switch is a substitute for the track ball or joystick and can be operated with various parts of the body , such as hands, feet, knees, elbows, head, etc. These SAM devices serve three purposes: First, they function as switch interfaces for special software "looking" for the mouse-click as single switch. Second, they allow cooperative control of conventional software so that a friend, parent, or sibling can move the mouse, while the switch-user does all the clicking with his or her switch. Finally, they allow connection of a switch to operate the CrossScanner software (see separate entry). Both models feature a drag-lock function to eliminate the need to click and drag simultaneously. COMPATIBILITY: Versions are available for use with Macintosh or IBM and compatible computers. OPTIONS: A USB/imac adapter is available for the SAM Trackball.
