Product Description: 

The mini trackball is a mouse simulator that allows users to control the mouse pointer with minimal force and movement. It is particularly suitable for people who have problems using the normal mouse: people who have a very limited range of motion for the extremities, with joint problems such as Arthritis, with more or less large motor problems (e.g. tremors, spastic paralysis, etc.), for finger/head rod users and people with dysmelia, or people with RSI syndrome or other wrist problems.

Main Features: 

  • The mouse pointer is controlled by moving the very small ball.
  • The built-in locking function of the left mouse button (LH key) enables single-button operation of the key mouse, thus ensuring the frequently used 'drag and drop function'. A red lamp shows status.
  • An additional built-in double-click function of the left mouse button (key 2L) makes it easier to work sensibly, especially for people with a disorder of fine motor skills.
  • The housing is flat to avoid a misalignment of the wrist.
  • The speed adjustment (like the 'normal' mouse) is set in the operating system.
  • The keycaps are glare-free and abrasion-resistant lettering.
  • The housing is milled from a solid block of hard aluminum and is powder-coated, ie. very scratch-resistant.
  • The use of short-stroke keys with a stroke of only 2.5 mm instead of the usual 4 mm enables efficient key entry.
  • The 'mini trackballs' are simply plugged into the PC instead of the normal mouse (very easy to startup).
  • Driver software is not required to operate the devices. All functions are 'hardware-solved' and can be set on the devices themselves.
  • These devices completely replace a normal mouse with all functions.
  • The devices are extremely easy to service due to the use of individual, mechanically high-quality buttons. The buttons can be changed easily e.g. due to unwanted liquid penetration.
  • 3 years manufacturer warranty.
  • Custom orders are possible.
  • Included:
    • 1 piece adapter (from PS2 to USB).
    • 1 instruction manual.
