Mouse adapter gives computer access to millions of hand tremor sufferers

IBM researchers have invented a new computer mouse adapter that enables people who suffer from hand tremors to have completely normal use of a personal computer. IBM is licensing the mouse adapter to Montrose Secam Limited, a small British electronics company that plans to manufacture and sell the Assistive Mouse Adapter for under $100 and which will donate a percentage of sales from the adapter to the International Essential Tremor Foundation.
