The 3dRudder is a versatile accessible peripheral
When you suffer from chronic or temporary upper body disabilities, the simple use of a computer mouse, a keyboard, or a joystick can be a challenge, if not a total impossibility. 3dRudder brings an innovative solution to you, by offering a new way to use your feet instead of your hands to control movement, browse the web, use Microsoft Windows-based applications, or play video games.
The 3dRudder is a foot mouse
The 3dRudder is a foot controller that can emulate a computer mouse. Rest your feet on the 3dRudder and trigger mouse move, left click, double click, holding click, right click, and scroll just by tilting the device, twisting your feet, or exerting effortless pressures. The 3dRudder is an ergonomic foot operated mouse that will relieve your hands and wrists while using your computer.
The 3dRudder is a foot keyboard
The 3dRudder is a foot controller that can emulate a computer keyboard. Use your feet and the 3dRudder for your most common key presses. With up to 8 key bindings you can emulate any keyboard key (including arrow keys, enter, space, page up & down) and shortcuts using combinations with the control, alt and shift keys. The 3dRudder is an ergonomic foot keyboard that proves convenient for repetitive key strokes.
The 3dRudder is a foot joystick
The 3dRudder is a foot controller that can emulate a 3- or 4-axes joystick. Rest your feet on the 3dRudder and trigger each axis by simpling tilting the device, twisting your feet or putting pressure. Customize deadzone and acceleration for a enhanced gaming experience. Forward/backward, left/right, rotation left/right and even up/down: the 3dRudder is a very convenient foot-powered joystick that will relieve strain on your wrists and proves fun to use.

No matter the peripheral you want to emulate, all you have to do is use our free software, the 3dRudder Dashboard, and activate the mode you need. Getting started really is a matter of a few clicks.
The mouse mode lets your 3dRudder emulate a foot mouse with the exact same controls as a regular mouse.
You can use the 3dRudder to move your pointer, do a left click, double click, holding click, right click and scroll. When you use the 3dRudder as a foot controlled mouse, you can adjust deadzone, delay and speed at any time.

The keyboard mode lets your 3dRudder emulate a keyboard with up to 8 keybindings.
Map the keys by simply selecting the axis of the 3dRudder with your mouse and then typing in the key you want to assign including special keys like shift, control and alt.
Double Threshold: thanks to this function, you can map 2 keys for the same axis. Tilting the 3dRudder a little triggers the 1st key, tilting it more triggers the 2nd key.
Trigger (%): move the cursor to the left/right to adjust the thresold level that will trigger the key.
Once you’re satisfied with your settings, click ‘apply parameters’. Please note that you first need to click ‘activate keyboard mode’ before entering your settings.
The joystick mode lets your 3dRudder emulate a foot joystick with up to 4 axes.
With the joystick mode, you can adjust deadzone and acceleration for a customized experience, and choose between factory or linear curves.
The joystick mode also includes a HOTAS option that allows you to use the 3dRudder foot controller in combination with a HOTAS.

In this tab, you’ll find ready-to-play configurations we prepared for you.
The list includes lots of games and gets enriched on a weekly basis. All you need to do is select the game you want to play and click the button ‘activate games settings’ to send the parameters to your 3dRudder.
Keyboard + Mouse mode
This exclusive mode is especially well fitted for certains games like Fortnite because it combines key mapping (WASD or ZQSD) with mouse functionalities.
The Keyboard + Mouse mode can be activated through the games configurations tab, either when selecting the appropriate game or under the generic name ‘FPS WASD + Mouse’ or ‘FPS ZQSD + Mouse’ of the monitor games list.
Select this configuration and click ‘activate game settings’ to send parameters to your 3dRudder.
Please note that this configuration cannot be customized that’s why you need to make sure that the keys assigned to the 3dRudder match the keys set up in your game.
Frequently asked questions
Can I use the 3dRudder foot keyboard and my regular keyboard simultaneously?
Absolutely. When you emulate the 3dRudder as a foot controlled keyboard, the 3dRudder enacts as a second keyboard. You can combine both your keyboards. While gaming, for example, you can assign arrow keys + WASD keys to your 3dRudder and use your regular keyboard for all the other controls.
Does my hand mouse remains active when I use the 3dRudder as a foot mouse?
Definitely. Your hand controlled mouse remains active at all times even when you have your feet on the 3dRudder in mouse mode. If you want to switch from your foot mouse to your hand mouse, all you need to do is remove your feet from the 3dRudder or use the ‘freeze’ shortcut to temporarily deactivate your 3dRudder.
How do I set up the 3dRudder?
It’s very easy. We provide a free software, the 3dRudder’s dashboard, to operate your 3dRudder. It takes less than 10 minutes for the 1st installation. You can then emulate a keyboard, mouse, or joystick in only 2 clicks, and also access dozens of games’ configurations in easy-access.
