The Quha Zona
This product is a gyroscopic air mouse used for computer access. The device uses a 3-D gyroscope to detect movement in the user and then move the mouse on the screen. The Quha Zona can be attached using a universal clip that comes with the device or a mount and used on the head, foot, hand or even glasses.
The Quha Zono works with computers and Android tablets. Individualized movements can be calibrated and stored within the device, so it is easy to move from one computer to another. The device transmits a wireless radio link to a USB receiver plugged into the computer/device. This mouse is also switch adapted for up to two switches if needed.
The model available in our inventory includes the Eyewear kit and the Zono Neckband. The Eyewear kit is an eyeglass frame (no lens) to allow the user to move the mouse with their head. The Zono Neckband is lightweight and allows the user to wear the device around their neck. This product is available for demonstration and equipment loan. Please call 602-728-9534 or email AskAzTAP@nau.edu for an appointment.
