ThumbTrack is a wearable computer mouse that is shaped like a ring and can be worn on your finger. It is controlled by the tip of the thumb. All mouse functions can easily be performed using just the thumb, eliminating the risk of pain or injury. The ring-shaped design allows users to maintain a comfortable body posture while working on their computer, letting the muscles of their wrists, arms and shoulders relax. The design also helps minimize the time spent shifting between keyboard and mouse, and maximizes efficiency and productivity.

To move the mouse cursor, users simply need to slide their thumb over the main tracking area of the ThumbTrack mouse. Three buttons, two of which are touch-sensitive, replace the traditional mouse buttons. A scroll function is also included and allows for capacitative touch scrolling and vertical navigation.
