Adapted mouse

Simple modifications enable a person with impaired hand function to use a mouse with trackball

Description
A two-button trackball mouse is adapted as follows:
- 2 key rings are glued on
- anti-slip material is glued to the bottom
- pieces of plastic are glued to the mouse buttons (photo no. 3)

Authors comments
The user can use the key rings to pick up the mouse and place it on his lap. The mouse is close to his body, which helps his shoulders when he works on the computer. The anti-slip material holds the mouse in place. Adapting the mouse buttons makes it possible for him to use the mouse. Enlarging small buttons means a lot to the user; they make it possible for him to use the buttons. He has this adaptation on many devices.

Build instructions
Adapted mouse button: take a piece (about 0.5 cm) of a catheter tube, glue it to the mouse buttons and fill the piece of tube with hot melt adhesive from the glue gun.
