Camera Mouse | Broward Children's Center

Camera Mouse

Through the funding of the Gore Foundation, Boston College partnered with Broward Children’s Center to
introduce the Camera Mouse program to the facility in 2012.

Camera Mouse, developed at Boston College, is a computer mouse replacement software used to assist individuals
with special needs in operating a computer. Typically, users of this software do not have reliable control of their
hands, but are able to move their heads. Used on Windows computers and tablets, Camera Mouse replaces the
need of a computer mouse, giving the user full control of a cursor through head movements.

Individuals with Cerebral Palsy, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, ALS, Multiple Sclerosis, Traumatic Brain Injuries, and
other various neurological disorders are perfect candidates for this software.

Our team of experts have been specially trained by Boston College developers to teach operators and clinicians
how to properly use the Camera Mouse software. Our team will provide in-depth training both on-site at Broward
Children’s Center, or in the comfort of your own office.

Our Camera Mouse trainings include:

  • Case Studies
  • Demonstrations
  • Support Services
  • 1-2 day comprehensive training sessions
  • Free software downloads for games and educational programs

Additionally, the Camera Mouse technology was presented at the Pediatric Complex Care Association’s National
Conference in 2013, and the Guardian Ad Litem Disabilities Training Conference in 2014.
