How does a foot mouse work?
First the user rests her feet on the board. To move the mouse cursor on screen, she just tilts the board in the direction she wants to point to. The more she tilts, the faster the mouse will move across the screen. To scroll, she twists the mouse on itself, and immediately the page she is viewing, scrolls up or down.
Clicks, double clicks, hold clicks, or right clicks are performed by pressing with the left or right toes on the board. The mouse movements and the scroll feel very intuitive and easy, and take only a few seconds to grasp.
The click buttons take a little more time to acquire, but with some practice they will become second nature. All our users always end up enjoying using their foot mouse, a real life saver.
The fact that our mouse is used with both feet prevents fatigue which you would get when using a device that has the feet work independently from each other, and even move around the floor.
Using the 3dRudder Foot Mouse feels a lot like having your feet rest on a footrest.
