QuadStick

A game controller for quadriplegics

The QuadStick is a mouth operated game controller for Quadriplegics.

The QuadStick has a joystick, four sip & puff sensors, a lip position sensor, and a push switch connected to a 32-bit ARM processor that converts the sensor inputs into USB and Bluetooth signals for PC's & Game consoles.

The QuadStick is directly compatible with the PS3, Android, and many PC games that use a joystick, mouse or keyboard. Through the use of a 3rd party USB adapter, XBox 360, XBox One, and PS4 consoles can be used, as well as PC games that require an XBox 360 controller.

The QuadStick appears to the host device as a PS3 compatible Gamepad, Mouse, Keyboard and Flash drive.

The connections between the input sensors and the signals sent to the host are configurable by the user and can be quickly changed between pre-configured profiles, while playing a game, to match different situations in the game. Specific configuration profiles can easily be created for games that require combinations or unique control inputs.
