Smartfish Technologies was founded on a passion for healthier living, smart technology and true ergonomic innovation in an ever-growing electronic world. With overwhelming positive response to the sleek design and true health benefits, Smartfish’s patented ergonomic technology not only removes the stress of repetitive use, but also promotes healthier lifestyles for work and play.
By applying motion to experiences, ErgoMotion™ is redefining ergonomics and changing the future of computing comfort forever!
The Truth About Ergonomic Products
Many ergonomic products on the market today are designed to find the perfect “fixed position” to alleviate stress to the user’s hands and wrists while they work. These products are designed with the belief that by placing the user’s hands and wrists at a “natural” angle this will properly address Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI). However, studies show repetition, not the position, induces RSI such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), proving that any fixed position will not solve the problem. In fact, over time, prolonged work in the same position will only cause injury no matter how natural the position.
ErgoMotion™ is built on the concept that movement is the key to healthier computing. The medical community has long supported movement to be beneficial to the human body, which promotes blood flow and decreases inflammation—inadequate blood circulation and inflammation are both considered key contributors to RSI. It was Smartfish’s founder, Dr. Jack Atzmon, who’s own experience with RSI lead him to question the effects ergonomic computer products had while he worked. Through Dr. Atzmon’s own research he challenged “fixed-position” products and their claimed benefits, and developed a theory that motion was the solution to true ergonomics. ErgoMotion™ is redefining the future of ergonomics. It is the first technology to actually address the root causes of RSI, and empowering the user to compute healthier.
Smartfish Whirl™ Desktop Laser Mouse and Engage™ Compact Keyboard are the first products to leverage the ErgoMotion™ technology. The Whirl™ Mouse utilizes a patented motion-base that conforms to the user’s natural hand and wrist positions while they work. However, the Engage™ Keyboard creates a slightly different ErgoMotion™ experience by tracking the user’s work pattern and making incremental changes to itself so the user’s hands and wrists are never in a static position while typing.
Smartfish’s computer peripherals are just the first of many applications of the ErgoMotion™ technology. ErgoMotion is a technology movement redefining what ergonomics should be, and revolutionizing the future of true comfort.
