Sip and Puff Switch Solutions

Sip/Puff solutions are ideal for people who have limited or no motor capability to operate switch activated devices, including computers, augmentative communication devices, adapted toys, environmental control systems and devices accessed or controlled by scanning. Sip/Puff technology is also popular for wheel chair navigation.
Sip/Puff in use
For people effected with severe motor disabilities, manipulating a standard switch can be difficult, tiring and in some cases impossible. With Origin Instruments Sip/Puff offerings users can easily activate and have control over devices through a simple "sip" and/or "puff" into a mouth tube.
Use the second generation Breeze to access iPad, iPhone and the iPod touch with Apple's Switch Control feature.
There are several ways to configure a sip and puff switch solution. The first consideration is the user interface. We provide two styles of headsets, single-user and multi-user, and a gooseneck user interface. The multi-user headset features a totally detachable mouthpiece assembly that is easily replaced for situations where multiple people will be using the same Sip/Puff Switch. For situations where a headset is not desired, a flexible gooseneck style interface is available. The gooseneck user interface features twist-on filtered mouthpieces.
The second consideration is connectivity. The device that turns the sips and puffs into electrical signals (often referred to as a "switch interface") for a computer or AAC device is available in two forms. If a simple switch closure over a standard 3.5-mm connector is desired then the passive Sip/Puff Switch is the proper choice. If a USB output is desired then Sip/Puff Breeze is the proper choice.

Sip/Puff Switch

Sip/Puff Switch
All user interface solutions can be attached to the separate, dual pressure switch using a simple twist-on pneumatic connector. The two pressure switches have normally open contacts that close when the user sips or puffs on an attached mouthpiece. These low voltage and low current signaling switches are designed for connection to an electronic device – they are not designed to switch power loads.
Sip and puff pressure thresholds are approximately 3-inches water column below and above ambient pressure 
Switches carry 40-milliamps at AC/DC–30 volts or less with a resistive load, for millions of cycles
Dual pressure switch has two 3.5-mm (1/8-inch headphone) connectors. One connector provides both sip and puff events with a stereo cable
Simple slide switch can be used to change the sense of Sip and Puff signals on the stereo connector
Passive pressure switches do not require batteries or external power
Enclosure has integrated "sip" and "puff" test switches
Sip/Puff Breeze
Sip/Puff Breeze
Second generation of Breeze builds on the original's comprehensive sip and puff switch, and computer interface solution by adding the capability to generate Apple iOS Switch Control events. It is a first class Sip/Puff sensor with and integrated USB computer interface. Using Breeze's DIP switch tell it what events your application needs, plug it in, attach a pneumatic tube, and your application is ready for access.
Sip/Puff Breeze now supports iOS Switch Control. With an Apple USB Camera Adapter, Breeze can now provide complete access to your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.
Attach the head mounted or gooseneck user interface to the Breeze sensor using a simple twist-on pneumatic connector. Using available tubing, you can even fashion your own custom interface. The sensitive electronic pressure sensor in Breeze will sense a sip or puff and convert these events into mouse button clicks, joystick button presses, or keyboard characters, and pass these to the connected USB host device.

Multiple User Sip-Puff Switch with Headset
Sip/Puff Switch Multi-User Package
The Origin Instruments Sip/Puff Switch is the leading sip-puff system for individuals with motor disabilities and limited dexterity. This multi-user version of the popular Sip/Puff Switch provides healthcare institutions, assessment centers, hospitals, etc. with a means to support multiple users while eliminating concerns over sanitation.
The padded, head-referenced design affords comfort and convenience. The disposable mouthpiece includes an in-line aseptic filter to enable hygienic, worry-free access by a succession of users. The system is packaged in a compact case for easy storage and transport.
Each disposable mouthpiece is enclosed in a sealed package that includes a pair of latex-free gloves and an instruction sheet. The mouthpiece filter eliminates sanitary concerns on behalf of both the user and the attendant while retaining sip-puff convenience, accuracy and reliability.
The disposable mouthpiece attaches in seconds using a snap-fit fastener to the padded headset. After usage, the mouthpiece is discarded and replaced so the systm is immediately available for the next user.
The mouthpiece is connected by plastic, latex-free tubing to a switchbox that converts sips and puffs into electrical signals. The switchbox connects to the computer or interface device through a single cable.
The kit's instrument case stores all components in a compact package. The case is similar to a small briefcase, complete with handle and snap closures. This packaging is ideal for storage and transportation within a busy and large health care institution.
