CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual with cerebral palsy to use a headwand to operate a computer without interfering with her hearing aid. Her existing commercially-available headpointer was made of rigid plastic and could not be modified. A metal headpointer was attached to a soft leather flyer's helmet which protected the hearing aid. Perforated inserts were added to the helmet over the ears, enabling the user to use the headpointer and the hearing aid simultaneously. TITLE: Customised Headpointer. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Vol 23 no 1, Autumn 2003: p. 10. PAGES (including cover): 2 2003.
