Abstract
This project designs, develops, and markets a foot-operated mouse that builds upon patented Dental R.A.T. technology. The foot mouse is designed to allow efficient hands-free access to all computer functions and is compatible with all operating systems/software. This foot mouse requires no special software, programming, or training. It has accurate cursor control and left/right mouse click capabilities. The foot mouse provides accessibility to computer functions for disabled users with upper limb disabilities, as well as, those who simply need access to computer mouse functions in a hands-free environment. Project objectives include: (1) determining optimum design and functional features conduct preliminary evaluations on concept design mock-ups, and (2) producing a final product specification document for further engineering and development. The foot mouse is an innovative device that has a variety of end-user applications conducive to successful commercialization.
