London-based Tunic Software came up with a program that compensates for hand tremors when using a mouse. This is how it works:
MouseCage (patent pending) displays a special Guide cursor on screen that shows your actual hand movements. The Windows cursor takes an average of this motion and automatically moves to where you intend to click.
When you are near or on target, you can optionally press the special ‘Cage’ key and your mouse is caged – this means that cursor motion is greatly reduced for accurate clicking.
If you wish, you can press the Cage key a second time to lock your mouse and stop all cursor motion. Now you can click in absolute confidence, and in your own time.
Mouse-Cage’s Guide cursor even changes colour to indicate when you are in Caged or Locked mode. It couldn’t be simpler!
