In addition to its wide applications in ergonomics, rehab, assistive technology, clean room (lab), dirty room (car repair), cyber room (video game), etc, FOOTIME foot mouse is especially useful for audio/video/movie editor, animator, graphic designer, architect, composer, arranger, product designer (CAD, etc), CT scanner, software programmer or any intensive computer user.

It's more than a mouse. It's a smart mouse (programmable). A mouse with brain! It's your stepping-stone to peak performance!

Why a foot mouse?

1) Efficiency Booster (Time Saver):

Shortcuts/hotkeys are frequently used during designing and editing, forcing 2 or 3 fingers to dance around jointly, awkwardly and eyes/view to move back and forth between monitor and keyboard or other devices. This eye-hand coordination kills time and causes stress. Another situation is: when doing these jobs, most pros' hands are constantly occupied in juggling with multiple input devices such as “hand” mouse, keyboard, input pen, or other devices on desk. What a nerve-wracking manoeuvre! Overloaded! Short-handed, literally! Speed limit: 2 hands. But their feet are left unused. That doesn't make sense. It's time to change! There was an unspoken, ignored, and unmet need for pros, everyday. It was identified and a solution created: A foot-controlled mouse with programmable buttons (shortcuts) can significantly speed up workflow and maximize efficiency by adding another input (without adding the work of hand) while reducing repetitive hand/eye movement between the above input devices. This foot mouse simply gives you a hand! It makes shortcut shorter, easier and faster by replacing multi-key finger control with 1-button foot control. Need a hand? Use your feet.

2) Pain Reliever (Hand Saver):

Hate that weak, piercing or numb feeling in your hands and arms? This epidemic (ex. carpal tunnel syndrome) is mostly caused by longtime and intensive use of various hand-controlled input devices. It hurts people's body, mood and work. Using the foot mouse, especially its mouse click buttons, can greatly reduce the stress and protect the nerves and tendons of hand and wrist. (Frequent finger tapping is the root of the pain.) When working with some on-screen keyboard software, the mouse even enables people to do typing by foot! Now, nothing can stop you from enjoying your computer. Speed up, stress down. No pain, more gain. Give your hands a break and put your happy feet to work!

In conclusion, with FOOTIME programmable pedal, 1-foot press is much easier and faster than multi-finger dance for shortcut entry. Foot mousing cuts down hand control time and eases stress in hand, wrist, arm, etc. This mouse takes over the entire job of hand mouse and some job of keyboard (the shortcuts) and transfers these jobs to feet. This job sharing and function combining enable FOOTIME foot mouse to outsmart hand mouse and outpace keyboard in shortcut entry. A foot mouse with brain can boost your gain and kill your pain! It saves time and hands.

Can feet really handle it?

(The feasibility & power)

Some people may question the feasibility of foot control. Basically, their misconception comes from two sources: first, distrust or bias against their feet; second, the failure or limitation of other pedals, switches or foot mice on the market. The following explanation should clear these people's doubt and resistance.

If you can drive a car, you sure can drive this foot mouse. Why? Because they have one thing in common: foot-controlled pedal. Your feet are smarter than you may think. And the ergonomic design makes the foot work effortless. (See detail in "Features" on the right column)

A little practice is all that it should take to enable a user to operate the pedal efficiently and comfortably. As Bili’s slogan says, "Trust your feel, trust your feet!" Let your powerful feet help your vulnerable hands.

Isn't it amazing that people can handle multiple car pedals of gas, brake, and clutch skillfully by foot without even looking at them? (Fortunately, with low accident rate) Unlike a car on road, FOOTIME foot mouse poses no threat to anyone or anything, even if you step on the wrong buttons. It's a "cyber car" and can take you to anywhere in cyber space. By foot! Driver wanted, no license needed. OK, enough comparison and fun. The point is: Don't underestimate the potential of your feet. It's time to tap your foot/full talent.

Some users prefer to use the smart foot mouse in conjunction with hand mouse for quick hand pointing and painless foot clicking plus various one-step shortcuts. That's fine. Just choose the way that works best for you!

To most people, foot mouse will never replace hand mouse completely, but it certainly improves the situation by sharing the workload of hand or by cutting back on hand mousing/keyboarding. It's not only a complement or alternative input, but also an additional or extra input. The goal is: Minimize pain, maximize gain!

Juggling multiple hand-controlled input devices and multi-key shortcuts is like (a physically normal person) driving a car completely by hand (controlling wheel, transmission, light, gas, break, and clutch), while feet are doing nothing. That's crazy! Why can't this be changed? Why can't your feet share the work or help?

For pros, the real power of Bili’s groundbreaking foot mouse lies in its programmable buttons. User can define up to 10 shortcuts for each program! And each button replaces 2-finger or 3-finger controlled hotkeys with 1-step foot controlled shortcuts! It's a mouse with brain. Actually, 1-foot hitting is much easier and faster than multi-finger dancing. The shortcuts are cut short! It's getting shorter! This change enables user to speed up computer workflow significantly and relieve hand/wrist pain greatly by reducing repetitive hand/eye movement. Go ask pros how many times they have to hit hotkeys with multiple fingers each day--frame by frame, page by page, beat by beat... So, it's not hard to see the direct result of using FOOTIME foot mouse: Productivity goes up, pain goes down!
