The Sip/Puff solutions are ideal for people who have limited or no motor capability to operate switch activated devices, including computers, augmentative communication devices, adapted toys, environmental control systems and devices accessed or controlled by scanning. Sip/Puff technology is also popular for wheel chair navigation.
For people effected with severe motor disabilities, manipulating a standard switch can be difficult, tiring and in some cases impossible. With Origin Instruments Sip/Puff offerings users can easily activate and have control over devices through a simple "sip" and/or "puff" into a mouth tube
The Sip/Puff Switch has two 3.5mm ports for connecting two standard mono cables or a single stereo cable and has integrated test buttons to assist in application testing. The two pressure switches have normally open contacts that close when the user sips or puffs on an attached mouthpiece. These low voltage and low current signaling switches are designed for connection to an electronic device (they are not designed to switch power loads).
Sip and puff pressure thresholds are approximately 3-inches water column below and above ambient pressure. Switches carry 40-milliamps at AC/DC-30 volts or less with a resistive load, for millions of cycles. Dual pressure switch has two 3.5-mm (1/8-inch headphone) connectors. One connector provides both sip and puff events with a stereo cable. Simple slide switch can be used to change the sense of Sip and Puff signals on the stereo connector. Passive pressure switches do not require batteries or external power.
Headset is a comfortable, adjustable head frame. The padded headset slips over the ears and behind the head. A replaceable mouth tube is held in position with an integral stainless steel forming wire. The tube and wire can be bent and cut to adapt to individual needs.
