QuadJoy/Street Electric Manufacturing Co. LLC
At the age of 29, Tom Street was seriously injured while unloading his rail dragster, which left him paralyzed from his shoulders to his toes. He never regained the use of his arms or legs. One year later, Tom formed Street Electric Mfg. Co. and served as a consultant for repair of heavy electrical equipment. His expertise in machinery and electronics galvanized by the desire to reconnect with the word, Tom designed and developed an orally-controlled mouse for his own use. This mouth operated mouse is now known as the QuadJoy.
When Tom realized the QuadJoy would be a godsend to anyone unable to manipulate a hand-held mouse, he collaborated with his brother Bill Street, an electronics engineer, and his friend Jerry, a machinist, to launch the QuadJoy in 1994. It has since been refabricated using higher quality material, but the heart of the device is still the same as Tom’s original prototype.
