The BJOY Hand A mouse emulator is a device which behaves like a conventional mouse and is specially designed to control the computer with a minimal movement of the fingers, facilitating access both to the joystick which moves the cursor and to the normal functions associated to the mouse clicks.

  • Ergonomic design to be easily held with only one hand.
  • Very sensitive analogical joystick which only needs a minimum action to be worked.
  • 4 customisable buttons for the clicks, with audio feedback.
  • Possibility of free movement (in all directions).
  • Progressive control with allows adjusting the speed of the cursor to the action performed on the joystick: more action – more speed and vice versa. This allows for more subtle control of the movement.
  • The device can be customised on demand so that external switches can be connected to make more clicks.
  • Easy adaptation to the user’s position and the movement directions according to the assembly orientation.
  • No installation software needed: the operating system recognises it automatically.
  • Plug and play device compatible with Mac and PC USB connections.
  • Configurable and customisable using the BJOY Configuration software provided with the product.
  • The configuration is stored in the device making easier to use the device on different computers. The user doesn’t need to reset the personal configuration each time.

The BJOY Hand A mouse is made up of the following parts:

  1. Joystick
  2. Buttons for the clicks
  3. USB cable

The device’s four buttons allows the click functions of the mouse to be performed: left click, right click, double click, drag-drop. The function of each button can be assigned using the BJOY configuration software.

This device can be customised on demand so that external switches can be connected. The switch inputs would correspond to the buttons A, B, C, D indicated in the product and in the configuration software.  

In order to use the BYoy Hand A mouse you have to connect the connection cable to the computer’s USB port. Once the computer has recognised the device you can use the mouse.

In order to move the cursor you just have to move the joystick in the desired direction. When you move the cursor you have to remember that it is a progressive control, i.e. the speed of the cursor is adapted to the action of the joystick: more action more speed, and vice versa.

For the clicks you have to use the buttons A, B, C and D indicated on the device. By defect the following functions are assigned to these buttons:

Entry A: Left click
Entry B: Right click
Entry C: Double click
Entry D: Drag – drop

The drag function is activated by pressing the button once. The cursor is then activated as if the left click was being pressed. Use the joystick in order to drag to the desired place. To deactivate this function the drag button must be pressed again.

Take into account that both the actions on the buttons and the movements of the cursor can be configured using the configuration software which is described below.

The BJOY configuration software allows you to configure the mouse behavior according to the user needs.
