BJOY Ring Joystick Mouse

Wouldn’t it be awesome to transform your wheelchair’s joystick into a mouse?  By installing the BJOY Ring you can!  The BJOY Ring Kit connects directly to your joystick so you can operate your cursor-controlled computer, tablet, or smartphone.

According to EnableMart, “The wireless ring is connected to a transmitter paired to the receiver, which is plugged into the device you’d like to control.”  The transmitter is able to pair with up to 4 receivers.

The kit includes free downloadable software to customize and set key functions.  The software allows users to:

  • Adjust the speed, sensitivity, acceleration, and audio feedback of the joystick to user’s needs
  • Orientate the device easily so it can adjust to the user’s position
    • Works with up to 45º inclination
  • Change the function assigned to each button:
    • Left click, right click, drag & drop, double click, or nothing
  • Activate the dwell click function for the left click (AutoClick)
  • And more!
