According to the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI): "Physical disabilities (sometimes called 'motor disabilities') include weakness and limitations of muscular control (such as involuntary movements including tremors, lack of coordination, or paralysis), limitations of sensation, joint disorders (such as arthritis), pain that impedes movement, and missing limbs."
The most common assistive technologies used by people with a motor impairment are alternative keyboard, head wand, trackball mouse or other alternative devices, mouth stick, single switch devices, speech recognition software, puff and sip devices, eye-tracking technologies, etc. Keep in mind, accessible device controls and features affect the user experience, even more so for someone with a mobility impairment.
We have created an infographic to help illustrate what to be aware of when designing and developing for people with motor impairments: Designing-for-users-with-mobility-impairments.pdf
