Foot-operated computer mouse design wins the Red Dot Award for its unique approach to accessibility

While accessibility controllers like the ones from Xbox only go so far, this concept mouse by Califor Design provides a better way for the disabled to control their laptop. The Foot Mouse is designed for people who are unable to use their hands due to disability or a neurological condition.

The Foot Mouse, as its name so aptly suggests, transfers control to the feet, allowing you to navigate and click by resting your foot on an ergonomically designed device. This mouse includes standard mouse functions like left and right buttons as well as a mouse scroll. The left and right keys are designed to be operated with the toes. The scrolling function is activated when the left and right buttons are simultaneously pressed and deactivated when one of the left or right keys is released. “The concave design of the mouse’s top surface is combined with human-machine engineering principles to ergonomically fit the complex curvature under the foot, ensuring a stable and comfortable user experience”, Califor Design told Yanko Design. “Foot Mouse is designed to fit feet of any width and size and to provide anti-fatigue support for extended periods of use.”

The Foot Mouse is a winner of the Red Dot Design Concept Award for the year 2022.
