Tilt Switch

The Tip Switch is a mercury switch that is activated by tilting 5 degrees from a horizontal position. The Dipsy tilt-sensitive switch can be attached to the head, arm, finger, or any other object. By having a 30 degree tilt activation, this switch is less prone to false activations. Use this assistive technology device with students who have limited range of motion and control head or hand movements.
