Griffin MouthStick Helps the Disabled Operate Tablets and More
March 2nd, 2013
All around the world there are a huge number of people who have been injured in automotive, leisure or industrial accidents, or were born with limited control over their bodies. There are a number of medical conditions that can make people unable to control their arms well enough to work the gadgets that many take for granted, such as tablets and laptops. Griffin has announced a new product specifically designed for those with physical challenges, to allow them to use today’s technology more easily. The product is called the Griffin MouthStick Stylus, and is designed to be held in the mouth using a food-grade stainless steel mouthpiece. That mouthpiece has latex free silicone rubber sleeves to protect the teeth. The shaft of the stylus is long and curved like a gooseneck and tipped with a conductive silicone tip. The stylus will operate the capacitive screens of smartphones, tablets, or other touchscreen devices. The stylus can also be used to type on a laptop keyboard and control other devices as well including the Apple Magic trackpad. The stylus will ship in Q2 for $29.99(USD) with replacement mouthpiece sleeves and silicone rubber tips available for a small charge.
