Lightweight mouth stick stylus for tablet and smartphone.

We offer this product in 4 options:
- Regular: 12" fixed size aluminum stick with (mini) ergonomic mouthpiece
- Pro: Adjustable stainless steel stick (9" - 17") with ergonomic mouthpiece
- Lite: 14" fixed size aluminum stick with straight tubular mouthpiece
- Kinetic: modular and flexible based on the Loc-Line hose system, 12" by default

The regular and kinetic can also be ordered with a mini version of the ergonomic mouthpiece. This mini mouthpiece is mainly targeted at kids (3-12yr old), but works great for adults as well who prefer a smaller size mouthpiece. If you want a custom kinetic, just specify your specs in the comments during out. The make the conductive chain work, the minimum length is 10".

If you want full flexibility in terms of mounting options for your mouthstick, check our Maker Pointer Mouthstick in a separate listing in our shop.

All options contain three parts: the mouthpiece, the stick and a conductive plug (tip). The Regular and Pro have an ergonomic mouthpiece made from a durable food safe plastic (FDA approved) and come with a set of silicone caps for a snap fit connection with the stick. The Lite has a tubular mouthpiece made from a durable food safe hose (FDA approved). For the tip, all options use the same conductive plugs based on the conductive fabric stylus sock concept as all our other styli. All parts are also sold separately (e.g. mouthpieces, plugs; see elsewhere in our shop).

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 stick. 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

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.
