An ergonomic mouse helps keep the hand and wrist in a neutral position. We use mice much more than we notice, and the repetitive motion of mousing can lead to tension and soreness if the forearm is twisted. Ergonomic mice keep your wrist and forearm in a straighter line. Individuals with tennis elbow, tendonitis, chronic wrist pain, or arthritis will benefit from an ergonomic mouse.
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.
