The problem of assisting people with special needs is assuming a central role in our society, and information and communication technologies are asked to have a key role in aiding people with both physical and cognitive disabilities.

Motivation for this kind of input device, together with the communication impairments that it may help to solve are reported in the paper, that then describes the adopted technical solution, compared to existing approaches, and reports the results obtained by its experimentation.
