Boomer: Wireless Foot Mouse

I am often writing about different accessible and ergonomic computer mice for individuals of all abilities.  However, I’ve yet to write about one you can operate using your feet–introducing Boomer: The Foot Mouse!

The foot device was invented by Becky Logue, a former dental hygienist.  She invented her first model back in 2006 (called “the Dental R.A.T.“) so dental hygienists could enter data into a computer completely hands-free.  The device eventually evolved into the Boomer and is used when one cannot use their hands to access their computer.
