Called T-slide, it replaces the conventional mouse to help people with limited mobility in their hands and fingers.
T-slide can be produced by 3D printers as well. It will have to be customised according to needs of the user.
The first T-slide has already been printed at a start-up company at Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala.
The ICFOSS says the main purpose of the T-slide is to make technology easier and accessible to disabled people. This way, every section of the society can access technology.
An official from the information technology department of Kerala government says that the T-slide will help bridge the gap between different sections of society.
