    Question: Is it possible to use this device as a computer click? left and right for example.

    Answer:  Alone no, computer manufactures do not make accommodations for switch access. You would need something called a switch interface like our item #4044 Interactive Mouse for PC:  This can only do the LEFT Mouse click. If you need both LEFT & Right Click you would need our #1165 Computer Mouse Interface :

    No we would not recommend this. Especially with Covid-19. One switch for one person only.  No sharing.

  4. How often should the filters and straws be replaced?
  5. Q How often should the filters and straws be replaced?
    Asked by Toni on December 8, 2020 10:59 am
    A For the filters: It depends on the user. How often they are using the switch. When the switch gets harder to use or stops working it's time to change out the filter. If not between 3 to 6 months for light use. For the straws: Straws can be sanitized in a dishwasher. It all depends on how often the switch is used. The straw should be cleaned daily and changed out when the straw shows signs of wear.

    A All the special switches like this we make are for use with specially made or adapted devices to accept switches. They will not work with any off the shelf items you would buy in a dept. or music store. Mainstream manufactures make zero accommodations for the special needs population.

    A The Sip and Puff uses an industry standard 1/8 inch (3.5 mm) Mono phone plug. It looks like the end plug of a set of headphones but mono not a stereo plug.
