New hope for computer users suffering from “Essential Tremor”:
The device, which looks a bit like a guitar effects box, is a small device with two on-and-off switches. It plugs in between the PC and the mouse, and it can easily be switched off when someone else wants to use the mouse.
The [Assistive Mouse Adapter] can be adjusted for tremor severity and to filter out unintended multiple clicks on the mouse, caused by trembling fingers.
The adapter uses an algorithm to filter out high-frequency motion. Another algorithm helps people who have trouble double-clicking.
The article mentions that there are nearly 10 million affected by this disorder in the U.S. alone.
