Price
InfoGrip-compatible
"a few hundred dollars" + a one-handed Bat
For their own system
$300 (DOS software) + "a few hundred dollars"
Shipping
these are custom-made, so an occupational therapist would make
moulds/do whatever to make it for you. You can buy one now.
Compatibility
PC only, although the InfoGrip-compatible version might work with a
Mac.

In a one-handed version, there is exactly one button per finger. In a
two-handed version, you get four buttons per finger, and the thumbs don't
do anything. You can also get one-handed versions with three thumb buttons
- compatible with the InfoGrip Bat. Basically, get it any way you want.

They also have a software tutorial to help you learn the chording, which
can also be used as a one-handed chording system for most DOS apps, using
the standard keyboard.

Works on a PC under DOS, not Windows. Planning on Macintosh and PC/Windows
support. No work has been done on a Unix version, yet.
