We focused on the movement of the mouse and pointer to design a system that adjusts the speed of the pointer movement based on the user”Ēs changing characteristics. This system automatically supplements the user interface of the personal computer with a mechanism to maintain work efficiency for the user. For test purposes, we asked a physically-challenged person to evaluate this system and were able to show significant results. This system will help physically-challenged users maintain their quality of life as this enables them to continue using a personal computer even as their state of mobility deteriorates.
