A PC mouse adaption for Angie

Who needs fingers for mouse clicks when a wrist will do? Meet Angie, who has Friedreich’s Ataxia, and finds using a standard mouse and keyboard difficult for playing Skyrim, Elder Scrolls Online and Assassins Creed on the PC.

Angie’s already mastered control of the keyboard for herself using voice controls, but the mouse was proving difficult. A Traxsys mouse joystick came to the rescue there, but the mouse clicks were still a problem.

Then we found she could move her wrist from left to right well, so we arranged two switches on wedges either side of her wrist. As she had a stronger right wrist flick, we mapped it to the left mouse click (and vice versa). Simple, and hopefully very effective. Happy gaming, Angie!
