Device Details


The LipSync Macro is a mouth operated input device that allows a person with minimal head and neck movement to control a computer or smartphone. All the electronics are housed in the ‘head’ of the device so there are no additional control boxes, making the LipSync a good candidate for portable, wheelchair-mounted applications. The mouthpiece is attached to a precision miniature joystick sensor that requires very slight pressure in order to generate keystrokes. The mouthpiece is also hollow, allowing sips and puffs to be translated into additional keystrokes.

The LipSync Macro contains a Bluetooth module for connecting to a Bluetooth compatible computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Device Compatibility

LipSync Variants

There are several different versions of the LipSync:

The original LipSync emulates a USB mouse.

The LipSync Wireless emulates a wireless Bluetooth® mouse.

The LipSync Gaming emulates a USB joystick or USB gamepad. It is compatible with the Xbox Adaptive controller and any desktop or laptop.

The LipSync Macro emulates a USB keyboard. It can be used with older iOS devices to provide switch access through the accessibility features.

The LipSync Switch Input Module can be used to modify one of the above versions so that a user can use switches instead of sip and puff. This can be a useful option for those unable to form their lips around mouthpiece or apply the positive / negative pressure to generate sips and puffs.


The LipSync Macro should be mounted in a stable position near the user’s face, close enough to their mouth so they can move the mouthpiece. The LipSync Macro needs to be powered through the attached USB cable by a USB power pack, USB power adapter or by connecting to a suitable USB port. Once the LipSync Macro is paired to the device, moving the mouthpiece and applying sips and puffs to the mouthpiece will generate keystrokes. These keystrokes can be mapped to accessibility switches to provide switch access in older iOS devices that do not support a mouse cursor.
