The patented shape maintains your hand in an upright neutral position that prevents forearm twisting. Many users, including medical doctors, ergonomists and physical therapists, said the Evoluent VM4RW VerticalMouse provides superior comfort and even relieved their wrist pain.
Approved mouse of University of California at Berkeley
The Evoluent VerticalMouse 2 (an earlier model identical in concept) was evaluated in 2007 by a team at the health services clinic in UC Berkeley, including medical doctors, physical therapists, ergonomists, and administrators. It was found to be comfortable, easily adapted to, and promote a neutral wrist and forearm posture. It was the only vertical type mouse approved for staff use within UC Berkeley and for sale in the campus store at that time.
