Tapio™ is a direct connect, dual switch interface designed for use by individuals with severe physical, neurological, or upper extremity disabilities or spinal cord injury. It is a native USB switch interface that can be connected to an Apple iOS Device using an Apple USB adapter. And because it is a direct connect interface, the user does not have to be concerned with Bluetooth pairing issues, drop-outs, and sluggish connections. Tapio accepts industry standard 3.5-millimeter stereo or mono plugs, and directly interfaces up to two adaptive switches to an Apple iOS Device or computer. The Switch Control will provide users with single switch access to Apple's iOS touch interface. In addition to Apple iOS Devices, Tapio will also work with Android, Windows, macOS and Linux computers, and many Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) devices. Tapio uses standard, USB Human Interface Device (HID) drivers and is powered from the device, so it does not require any external power.
