Adaptive Hardware

Optelec ClearView C
The Optelec ClearView C is a desktop video magnifier that is designed to improve your reading experience. With the Optelec ClearView C, patrons naturally start to read at the top of a page and continue all the way down till they reach the bottom of the page. This magnifier makes it easier to navigate any document.

TrackerPro 2
The TrackerPro 2 head mouse provides reliable hands-free mouse control for people who are unable to use a regular mouse. The system uses a smooth and pixel precise cursor to provide an accurate hands free mouse. An individual can use video call, browse the internet, read a digital boosk, type an email, or just about anything else that can be done on a computer, tablet, or phone.
