Re: Software to simulate hand tremors?

That would be something!

If you don't find anything, I wonder if a solution might be to make the
mousepad and keyboard move erratically. Putting them on a base that is
somewhat supported by a handheld massager (engages erratically) might
come close.

Or, at least for the mouse's behavior:
--Replace the smooth ball in the mouse with a bumpy one.
--Use a mouse pad with an irregular surface.

For a track ball, place it on a platform that vibrates up and down in
one frequency and side to side (or in an eccentric circular fashion) in
yet another. (Same platform could support a mousepad.)

I know that's a fuzzy notion, but maybe it will give you an idea that
can work.

Does anyone know of software that simulates hand tremors? I googled
and found a lot of tools to remove hand tremors, but I want to
simulate how it feels for a user without a motor disorder.
