MASON, Ohio (PRWEB) May 21, 2020 — Smyle Mouse, the next generation head mouse that allows people with disabilities or difficulties of hands to control their computers and/or tablets, is now being offered as a subscription-based service. The monthly subscription price is $24.99/month, which is being further discounted to $19.99/month in light of the COVID-19 crisis. Smyle Mouse can also be purchased for a one-time payment of $499. In comparison, competitor products cost more than $1000.
Smyle Mouse is downloadable software that enables users to control their computers without using their hands. It uses the computer’s web camera to sense the user’s head motions to move the mouse pointer and the user’s smile to cause a click. This is tremendously beneficial for people with conditions such as ALS, Carpal Tunnel, Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal Cord Injuries, and others. They can use Smyle Mouse to communicate with others by email, text messages or social media, do school or office work, pay bills, play games, and more without the use of hands or voice. Users can also use it as an adaptive switch to operate their SGDs (Speech Generation Devices) or AAC (Augmentative & Alternative Communication) software.
Smyle Mouse is developed by Perceptive Devices LLC. Company founder Uday Parshionikar recognized that the economic challenges resulting from the COVID-19 virus crisis could hamper acquisition and use of a much-needed product. “We already had plans to have a Smyle Mouse subscription model eventually, however, the COVID-19 crisis gave us an extra sense of urgency. Our goal has been to allow people to use Smyle Mouse for an entire month for the price of one simple dinner. No one should have to wait to build up savings or to wait on the long insurance approval processes to start using this life-changing technology!” says Parshionikar.
The monthly subscription price for Smyle Mouse is $24.99/month. The company is offering a 20% discount on new subscriptions until August 31, 2020, for a discounted price of $19.99/month. The company offers free evaluation licenses to Speech Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists and Assistive Technology professionals on request.
