AbleNet Basic Switches

Single switches offer simple use for users who have a variety of needs. Single switches work well with systems which require one-click functionality. These switches are simple to use, and can be used as a primary or secondary input device. Most single switches offer good auditory and tactile feedback when the switch is activated which can be useful for users who have moderate to severe upper extremity issues or motor disabilities.
