INTRODUCING THE EARSWITCH
Communication and Control
Welcome to Earswitch Ltd, the advanced Technology Company paving the way to the future.
Find out how control is in your ear.
Unlocking communication for all.
Your ear is not just for listening.... it will control your environment.
The Earswitch places control in your ear; a sensor that detects intentional movement of your eardrum by one of the smallest muscles in your body.
Squeeze or tense the muscle and a sensor in your earphone or hearing aid, powered by Earswitch, will control your device:
change tracks/ volume; operate your headcam; answer your phone; read your text; control your game; call for help or select the icon you are looking at with eyetracking.
The Earclick is the new invisible mouse-click.
WHAT WE DO
By “Unlocking” Communication for People with Severe Disability we have developed the next Human-Computer Interface
The Earswitch was developed by a UK GP (Primary care doctor) to help people with severe communication problems to activate virtual keyboards to allow them to communicate.
The Earswitch can help everyone control their own technology.....so developing this for all will benefit those most in need.
Unlocking the Voice of the Few….with the New Interface for All
Investigating the Earswitch for safer non-touch communication and IT control
The Earswitch provides the potential for controlling handsfree communication via earphones for health care workers in PPE (preventing the need to touch a phone or earphone).
In the general population using a smart earphone with Earswitch control rather than a mobile phone may prevent transmission from hand to phone to face.
Eyetracking control may be more efficient using the Earswitch as a rapid “Ear-click to select” - enabling Eyetracking to be a realistic handsfree interface for medical staff to control IT (such as electronic medical records & devices etc) without risk of virus transmission.
Many interfaces will gain from being “non-touch” to reduce transmission of COVID.
