An amazing technological triumph, this switch can be activated by a movement as subtle as the wrinkling of a forehead. Users can increase or decrease the amount of muscle movement needed to activate the switch and can choose from three operation modes — on-off, momentary and timed. Use the on-off mode when operating a device that needs to remain on until the user wants to turn it off; the momentary mode when operating a toy or communication device; and the timed mode when operating a device that you want to stay on for a preset period of time (adjustable from 1 to 120 seconds). Extra sensors sold separately.

Questions and answers of the customers
Q Does it work with the blue 2 deviceAsked by February 25, 2020 1:56 amonA It should.
Q How long does a “Twitch Switch Sensor” usually last before it needs to be replaced?Asked by October 18, 2019 1:02 pmonA That is not a simple answer. If care is taken with taping them and removing them from the user as to not pull or jerk the wires coming out of the sensor or to crease the sensor in any way they should last a long time. The weakest part of the sensors are the wires as they can get pulled or jerked which can cause a break in the wiring.
Q Can I attach it to my thumb with tape and activate the switch by moving (or twitching or shaking) my thumb? Or the plump part of the palm connected to the thumb.Asked by October 18, 2019 1:01 pmonA The sensors activate when they are flexed. You can tape them on the ends of the sensor as shown how the sensor is taped in the product page here: https://enablingdevices.com/product/twitch-switch The center of the sensor needs to be able to flex and bow. You can not tape across the whole sensor, if you do it will not work.

Q Would this work with our call system?Asked by July 5, 2018 3:04 pmonA If your call system uses a 1/4 inch mono input jack you would need to buy an adapter to make it work as all our switches use the standard 1/8 inch size plugs. The adapter must be a mono adapter, stereo adapters will not work. Our # 1160 adapter will work: https://enablingdevices.com/product/adapters or our 1/8 inch to 1/4 cord 2548: https://enablingdevices.com/product/replacement-cords.
