Susan Crouch. 1950-2011.

Susan Crouch passed away on October 27, 2011 after suffering a stroke. Susan was the inspiration for the Magic Wand Keyboard and its first user. She was the heart and soul of In Touch Systems, most often the voice to telephone callers and email correspondents, and one of the faces to visitors to this web page. She was a multitalented person who maintained web pages, designed flyers and postcards, kept business books, did correspondence, wrote two winning grant applications, and still found time to write a book, lavish attention on her many nieces and nephews, and be a loving wife.

I miss her so much.


A Miniature Computer Keyboard and Mouse for
People with Disabilities

Full Computer Access
With Just the Slightest Hand or Head Movement

Needs No Strength—No Reach—No Dexterity

The Magic Wand Keyboard is a miniature computer keyboard, with a built-in mouse, that allows anyone with a disability to fully and easily access any computer. It is designed to be used with little or no hand movement and is the only computer keyboard and mouse that requires no strength.

This mini computer keyboard works with the lightest touch of a wand (either hand-held or a mouthstick). It requires absolutely no force. To offer people with disabilities equality in school and on the job, we designed the Magic Wand Keyboard to work easily and instantly, with no training or installation required.

Designed for Students

Students can do homework independently and up to 3 times faster than before. They can work longer without tiring, take standardized tests exactly like their classmates, do research on the Internet using our built-in, zero-force mouse, and use early-learning educational programs exactly like their friends. Older students will make PowerPoint presentations, complete projects side-by-side with their classmates, and create spreadsheets and CADD drawings without assistance.

The Magic Wand Keyboard is used in public schools and universities throughout the U.S., Canada, and the EU, for students from kindergarten to 12th grade, from college to graduate school and medical school.

The keyboard gives full computer access to children and adults with disabilities that include muscular dystrophy, spinal cord injury, SMA and other neuromuscular disorders, arthrogryposis, autism, MS, dwarfism, and severe repetitive strain injury.

Miniature Size and Special Features

This miniature keyboard measures just 8.5" x 6.5" x 0.5", with a typing area only 6.5" x 3" (the Mac keyboard is an inch smaller). This enables adults and children with very limited reach to type easily. Designed for simplicity and speed, the keyboard has a full QWERTY layout plus dedicated mouse keys, four programmable keys, keys to speed up one-handed typing, a bell key (for audio feedback), and a special wand key for advanced functions.

Full Mouse Capability

The built-in mouse requires no strength and very little movement yet it can perform every mouse function just like with any standard mouse or trackball. It works through the keys on the keyboard and has 11 speed settings, left and right click, drag, and double click.
