Comax is a fun alternative for Amateur Radio (Ham) Operators. Neat to see the computer operated with no keyboard, just a Morse key!
For handicapped applications, Comax is often connected to the computer via a wireless mouse connection so as to allow freedom of movement. The Morse Code is sent via switches adapted to the needs of the particular person. The switches may be a Morse key, sip & puff switches, head movement switches, eye operated switches, or foot operated switches. Or even a brain wave connection, the possibilities are endless.
For carpal tunnel treatment, Comax is often connected to the computer via a Morse paddle. The paddle turns the hand in a different orientation than does a keyboard or mouse and requires only a slight movement of the fingers while the weight of the hand is in a resting position.
Comax is also a good alternative to the tiny keyboards on ultra small PC's. Most users find that, with practice, they can enter text faster by Morse than with small keyboards that do not allow touchtyping. Some users even prefer Comax for data entry on their desktop and free up desk space by retiring their keyboard.
