Features

Activate Mouse Clicks
All Savant Elite foot switches come pre-programmed to activate right and left mouse clicks, plus a middle mouse button action where a third pedal or input is present. For many users the pain associated with mousing is from the action of clicking, not from moving the mouse. The Savant Elite resolves this problem by relocating the clicking action to the user's feet.

Program Any Key Action
Reprogram the foot switch to activate any key action(s). Perfect for offloading work from an overused finger or hand. Some of the more commonly used key actions are Shift, Tab, Enter, Backspace and Delete.

Create Macros
Macros are a great productivity tool for generating commonly used phrases, or combinations of key actions and modifiers. With a memory pool of 1200 characters per device the Savant Elite will support even the most demanding of tasks.

Compatibility

Windows
Available USB port. Uses generic drivers provided by the operating system (Windows 98, 98SE, ME, 2000, XP, Vista & 7).
Compatible with Windows 98, 98SE, ME, 2000, XP, Vista & 7.
Re-programming driver available on the Support Downloads section of www.kinesis-ergo.com for Windows 98, 98se, ME, 2000, XP, Vista & 7. Driver not compatible with 64 bit versions of XP, Vista and 7. A CDROM is available upon request for a minimal charge.
Only Windows 2000, XP, Vista & 7 offer full functionality of mouse clicks.

Macintosh
Requires available USB port. Uses generic drivers provided by the operating system (OS 8.6 - 10.X)
Only OS X offers full functionality of left and right mouse clicks. Middle mouse button not supported on Macintosh without using a third party driver.
Note: Modifier actions from one USB device cannot modify the input of a second USB device due to limitations designed into the Apple operating system.

Example: Shift, Control, Command, or Option keystrokes programmed into the footswitch cannot modify the input of a separate USB keyboard or mouse. However, a key sequence like 'Cmd-W' or 'Cmd-Shift-left arrow' will work on a Macintosh if the entire sequence of keystrokes has been pre-programmed into the footswitch. (Footswitch can only be programmed on a Windows PC).

Linux, Sun and other Non Windows Platforms
Requires available USB port. Uses generic drivers provided by the operating system. Due to the heterogeneity in these platforms, we cannot guarantee compatibility with these systems. However, if your system can use any USB mouse and keyboard, it will probably work with a Savant or Savant Elite foot switch.
Re-programming drivers are not available for these systems. The user is advised to re-program the foot switch on a Windows-based PC system.
Mouse click actions may not be supported on these systems. However, based on our limited experience with these platforms we have yet to encounter any incompatibility issues.

Applications

For the Office...
Get more work done and feel better than before. A Savant Elite programmable foot switch can do this for you by offloading work from an overused finger or hand. Create macros for repeated tasks, activate mouse clicks, or trigger any key action or modifier such as "Shift" or "Tab".

The Savant Elite Foot Switch is ideal for keying intensive tasks, such as:

Programming
Technical Writing
Data Entry
Word Processing
Graphic/Design
Call Center
Transcription
Accounting
Media & Sound Editing

Dental, Medical & Industrial...
All models are ETL recognized for near-patient use. Select one, two, or three pedals, or a jack-equipped model supporting an optional hand trigger.

Dental
The Savant Family of foot switches are used extensively with Intraoral Radiography hardware and software including Kodak's (Practice Works) TROPHY RVGui Digital Radiography System and Softdent Software.

Medical
Current applications include digital radiography systems, endoscopy & ultrasound.
Use in the examination room with any equipment accepting a USB input device.
Consider the optional input jack version to connect a hand trigger for alternate use.

Industrial Control
A programmable USB foot switch can streamline many industrial assembly or test procedures.
Multiple Savant Elite devices can be connected to a PC, with either foot pedal or hand trigger inputs.
Because these are low-speed USB devices, extension cables can be often used without sacrificing data integrity.
