Universal headset mount with stylus pointer for head controlled tablet and smartphone use.

This offering contains a full functional head pointer solution, containing a headband with a mounting plate and stylus pointer. The stylus pointer is available in four options that differ in length and bend-ability. Here are the main characteristics to help you choose what works for you.

* Head part: headband
The head part has an easy adjustable head size knob at the back and a stainless steel mounting plate for the stylus pointer. Two tube clamps on the front of the mounting plate offer a plug-and-play placement for the stylus pointer of choice.

For the head part, we're also offering a cap edition (see elsewhere in out shop). This is for people looking for a more casual look or with a headrest and want to avoid a protrusion at the back.

* Stylus pointer options: tube or flex
The stylus pointer part is available in tube and flex alternatives. The tube pointer is a straight aluminum tube, lightweight and by default available in 12" and 14" length. The flex pointer is a bendable brass strip and by default available in 13" and 15" length.

The tube pointer is the most stable one, and if you require a curve, it can be bend smoothly (once). If you prefer a heavier pointer with full bend-ability, we recommend the flex.

Package
The package contains the head part and the stylus pointer of choice. Ready to use in a minute; adjust the headband and chin strap, mount the stylus pointer and go!

Operating instructions
1) Adjust the head size with the rear knob (headband) or velcro strap (cap)
2) Tighten the top screw(s) of the mounting plate
3) Press the stylus pointer in the tube clamps of the mounting plate
*) Optional: bend the front of the mounting plate for your personal best ergonomic angle

Stylus Socks
All styli and pointers use our in-house engineered Stylus Socks concept; a tip made from highly conductive fabric that is wrapped around a plug on the stylus pointer. Compared with rubber or foam alternatives, they have no drag, there's no pressure required and they don't break. Smooth operation is guaranteed on all modern capacitive tablets and smartphones, like the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch iOS devices from Apple, the Android based Galaxy range from Samsung, the Nexus range from Google and Asus, the Xperia range from Sony, the Kindle range from Amazon, etc.

A stylus for every need
In an effort to address all special needs comfort levels when working with capacitive touch screen devices, we listen carefully to client needs and adapt them in our extensive styli portfolio. Don’t find a stylus or pointer for your needs? Contact us for a custom solution!

Cheers, Team ShapeDad


History
It all started when the wife of a quad (quadriplegic) patient ordered a regular Stylus Socks stylus from our Etsy shop. She found out about our conductive socks concept while she was visiting a local Apple store and one of the employees started Googling for a proper solution. Their first approach was to put the conductive sock around the tip of their existing plastic mouth stick. But as you may know, a capacitive touch screen requires some ground (body) contact to make it work. And with a plastic mouth stick, this means that a wire needs to be wrapped around the stick and into the mouth, which is not very convenient.

Then we made a custom solution for them based on two approaches. One with a fully conductive aluminum mouth stick gaining enough electrical ground by itself, and one that uses the iPad's body as an electrical ground so you can use it with an existing mouth stick of any material (even plastic). We shipped it and got positive feedback on both approaches. We tweeted about it and got in contact with people around the globe dealing with ALS or MS and started supporting them. A few weeks later, several of these packages got shipped to the US and AUS. And people using a head pointer got triggered as well, so that's how we started offering the conductive plugs. Just put these around your head pointer's tip and you're ready to go.
