The Penguin marks a major breakthrough in the battle to beat health problems created when computer users spend too much time handling a conventional mouse.

It sets new standards of protection against a range of upper limb conditions such as repetitive strain injury (RSI) and carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) by enabling right and left hands to share the workload and avoiding exaggerated movements of the wrist joint that can increase pressure on the soft tissues in the carpal tunnel. Regular switching of hands throughout the day helps prevent static muscle strain (SMS) in the arm and shoulder - a major source of discomfort in mouse work.

The Penguin Mouse is also antimicrobial to inhibit the growth of bacteria - making it perfect for hot desking environments.

Additional Information

  • The vertical alignment encourages a more ergonomic operating position
  • Ambidextrous Design- Central 'bow-tie' switch allows for easy transition between right and left handed use.
  • Easy-glide symmetrical base - Allows the user to rest either hand comfortably alongside the vertical structure, encouraging the use of the bigger muscles in the fore and upper arm to manoeuvre the mouse. Fine cursor control is still achievable with small hand and/or finger movements
  • Precision performance laser - Provides accurate tracking on typical work surfaces
  • Adjustable 400, 600, 800 or 1200 dpi settings- Encourages fast and precise operating movements
  • Precision scroll wheel - For fast, accurate document scrolling
  • Soft key touch - Low activation force and full key travel distance provides keying comfort

The Penguin mouse is available in three sizes. To choose the correct one for you, measure your hand from the first crease on your wrist to the tip of your middle finger.

Even my friend who tried it for 1st time yesterday for 5 mins said it felt intuitively better and more natural! However it took me a little while [several days] to really get used to, I love it, wish I'd switched to it earlier when I first found out about it. Top marks Posterite, shows depth of expertise to design and market and support so well.


I've already got one Penguin mouse, excellent for my typing. I got the large Penguin mouse much easier to get hold of by my hand.


I was quite sceptical, but the Penguin was recommended by my NHS physio. Certainly seems to help the RSI I have been suffering and it is great that you can use either hand.


much better for my tendonitis, along with having breaks every 20mins my symptoms went away. It's easy to use in either hand


Very good mouse. Great for left and right hand use. More comfortable then the 3M ergo. Good use of buttons. Wireless battery life is excellent


I am returning the product as unfortunately it simply does not work.
The cursor drags slowly across the screen and disappears totally.
Our IT Manager has run a few tests but cannot get it to improve so unfortunately we are returning the product for full refund.

Hi there,  I am sorry to hear that the mouse hasn't worked properly for you, it sounds like the mouse you received may be faulty. We have now issued a refund back to you which you should receive in the next 2-3 days. A member of customer services should be in contact with you today about the return of the mouse. Once again, I apologise for the fault and any inconvenience that this has caused. Kind regards 


Tricky to get used to the different hand position but it has helped my symptoms of carpal tunnel. Awkward having to move whole lower arm with hand to slide mouse around - had to get used to using a whole new set of arm muscles! Top button (equivalent to left click) doesn't always click on screen when pressed and lower (right click) button seems to jam and need wiggling to move it ocassionally. Posturite replaced the first Penguin when this happened (excellent service) but still apparent so maybe it's just a design issue or particular to my hand. Despite the negative points the Penguin has helped some of my symptoms so still worth having.


Used this product for tendonitis in my thumb. I have tried other ergonomic mouses but they still caused tension in the hand and pain in the tendons. This mouse is great! I no longer have trouble using a mouse for extended periods, the pain has reduced and is no longer caused by mouse usage. The mouse didn't take too long to adjust to the different hand position. I recommend this product for similar problems!


Had one before, happy with this product!


Device is easy to use and has had a dramatic effect on comfort when working at the computer
