Ergonomic mouse helps keep the hand and wrist in a neutral position, unlike others which require your forearm and wrist to be twisted, causing tension and soreness. For individuals with tennis elbow, tendonitis chronic wrist pain, or arthritis, an ergonomic mouse is the most suitable option. We use the mouse more than we can possibly notice, and the repetitive motion of our wrists and hands, if poorly positioned can lead to pain and injury. When using an ergonomic mouse, your forearm and wrist will end up in a straight line. No matter the style, it can be an effective device in preventing pain, injury and in promoting healthy work habits at the computer. Ergonomic mice are a small but important investment in the health and productivity of the computer users.
Are you keeping your mouse close to your keyboard? It is important to keep your mouse in a place such that your wrist is in a natural position. A large keyboard would enable you to place the mouse next to your keyboard. In case you have a regular size keyboard tray, we recommend that you use a mouse platform and clip the mouse platform to your keyboard.
We recommend to all our customers to develop the healthy habit of alternating between left/right hand when using their mouse. It would take a while to establish this habit, but will take a lot of pressure off of your arm and shoulder when you start using both hands.
How to choose the right mouse- The mouse that you are working with needs to fit your hand. There are different options in the market and you need to choose one that would fit the size of your hand. You can give rest to either of your hands by using a mouse that alternates between the left and the right hand.
