GentleMouse is a patent-pending, ergonomic software program that eliminates the need to click the mouse! If you are suffering from Repetitive Strain Injury, arthritis or unable to click the mouse or you want to avoid developing clicking-related injuries, GentleMouse can help. Whenever you move and pause the mouse cursor, GentleMouse briefly displays a small, transparent window next to the cursor called a Trigger Window. If you want to click where you stopped, you just move and stop the cursor over the Trigger Window and GentleMouse simulates the click for you. Its that easy! No clicking. No strain. No pain. There are secondary Trigger Windows that become visible when you move through the first Trigger Window corresponding to right-click, double-click, and middle-click, as well as common keyboard shortcuts (copy, cut, paste, etc.) and browser shortcuts (home, forward, back, etc.). So you can perform all the mouse actions and much moreall without clicking! GentleMouse works with any standard or ergonomic mouse, as well as alternative input devices such as trackballs & head-tracking devices. With GentleMouse, if you can move your cursor, you can click! GentleMouse is fully customizable. You can assign multiple mouse commands and keyboard shortcuts to the Trigger Windows. You can also adjust how fast the windows appear and how long they stay visible. You can change the Trigger Windows' size, text, color, transparency and more. With GentleMouse, you can still click manually if you want to. So you can choose to never click the mouse or let GentleMouse do most of the clicking. Either way, by reducing clicking, GentleMouse may lower your risk of developing RSI or other clicking-related injuries. And since with GentleMouse you no longer have to click, you can relax your grip on the mouse, which helps reduce the overall strain and risk associated with mouse use.
