MouseCap
a computer mouse for disabled people

Challenge
In many countries, computers are an essential resource, but physically disabled people have trouble using traditional hardware. Increased accessibility to computers for disabled persons could mean improved job opportunities for them.

Solution
To replace the traditional PC mouse, MouseCap is composed of a processing unit and four sensors, three placed on the monitor and one placed on the head of the user, enabling the user to control the cursor with head movements. MouseCap can be plugged into any PC with a USB port.
