Item description for The Ergonomics of Computer Pointing Devices (Advanced Perspectives in Applied Computing) by Sarah A. Douglas...

This book provides an in-depth coverage of the ergonomics of computer pointing devices using psychomotor models to analyse human performance, and experimental data for evaluation. The full spectrum of pointing devices are discussed including mice, joysticks and trackballs. Human motor performance and its effect on the design of pointing devices is comprehensively covered with issues such as vision, touch, cognition and limb control addressed. A chapter is devoted to design and includes discussion of task-device compatibility, range of motion, adaptive software control and device operation, and user interface semantics. The final chapter, as well as addressing International standards (including ISO 9247 and the American National Standards Institute) also looks at future issues in the development of pointing devices including pointing and speech, distributed environments and virtual reality. Sarah Douglas and Anant Mithal have written a definitive text on this important area of computer science which will be welcomed by all those working in the field.
