Computers are an important part of our daily lifes, and to be able to control them is in many cases necessary to be able to work, communicate or take part in our modern society of today. Therefore are persons that can not use an ordinary computer mouse in need of an alternative mouse. The reason of why an ordinary mouse can not be used is very different from person to person, depending on their abilities and needs. The need can also vary over time, not all persons are permanent handicapped, it can be a disability or bodily injury that can be healed. From these aspects, a computer mouse that can be used by a wide range of people with different types of disabilties and that can be applied on different body parts has been developed and evaulated.
