"Such hands-free control can be very useful to millions of people around the world who experience difficulties in using their hands due to disabilities such as spinal cord injury, stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, ALS and carpal tunnel syndrome."

Perceptive Devices, which provides patented and award winning technology in the field of Human Computer Interaction, today announced the latest release of its gesture control software, the Smyle Mouse.

"I lost the use of my arms about two years ago so whenever I used the computer I needed assistance. Obviously, my productivity decreased dramatically, impacting not only my career but my family life as well. Before Smyle Mouse, I only spent about 30 minutes a day on my laptop, but now, I can use my laptop over nine hours a day without assistance," said Jeff Nicklas, USA.
