PROJECT: Modular Support Keyboard
"People with reduced mobility, e.g. through spasticity
paralysis has big problems communicating or communicating
to deal with a "normal" keyboard and mouse. In our project we
develop a modular keyboard to type the tokens
optionally with large, robust buttons, a joystick or even by eye movements. As our development turns out to be a USB keyboard, it is compatible with all computers, the one

customizable and cost effective solution that uses standard parts which are easily available in most countries. "
