Miniature Tongue Joystick

A sailor with severely reduced muscular control may need to use an inceptor operated by the tongue.  Even if a suitable switch with low operating force can be found, a major problem with this arrangement is to ensure that it cannot move relative to the skull and mouth, otherwise boat control may be lost if the switch can no longer be reached.
