Boys and girls, what we have here is a simple case of USB optical mouse plus sphygmomanometer equals MDMouse.
It’s perfect for the 70 million odd grown ups and senior citizens in the United States who are suffering from hypertension. Also perfect for anyone else outside the U.S.A. with hypertension.

The ring beside the mouse accommodates a digit (we believe your thumb goes in there based on how a person grasps a PC mouse) and tightens accordingly for the right amount of pressure, which registers on a corresponding software program on the PC.
