This paper presents an experiment to validate a head-mounted inertial interface for human-computer interaction (HCI) developed for people with cerebral palsy (CP). The method is based on Fitts’ law, an empirical model of human motor performance for aimed movements. Head motion is recorded ina series of goal-crossing tasks and a regression model of the movement time (MT) is estimated for each user. Values of R2 above 0.9 are indicators of a strong correlation of those motion patterns with the linear model proposed by Fitts. The analysis of MT con rmed that head movements of non-disabled users follow Fitts’ law and showed that 3 users with CP (MACS IV and V) had the same behavior. There was a weaker correlation (R2=0.839) for one individual with cervical dystonia and ballistic movements and no correlation for two users with cervical hypotonia and dyskinetic CP.
