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.

Now Antimicrobial!

The Penguin Mouse is now 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.

lower button keeps sticking, guidance on right size only considers dimensions for length of hand from wrist to end of middle finger, do not account for width of hand. I had to swap the buttons to left hand style to stop my index finger aching from stretching up. penguin shape is not vertical enough, its too angled. considering the price paid for this product, very very disappointed

Hi there,
We are sorry to hear that you are unhappy with the Penguin mouse. The guide should be at 90% of users hands that the mouse would suit though it is unable to be completely exact as everyone is different. Same as a pair of shoes, it is not an exact science when fitting.

‘Not vertical enough’ !! Not sure how to answer this ! Where the body meets the base is vertical, then it indents to follow the natural shape that the hand is in when in resting state but unfortunately not possible to fit everyone. I will pop you a PM and see if we can help you any further to see if we can suggest an alternative. many thanks


The products offered by Posturite are excellent and would totally recommend.

Hi there! so pleased that you are happy with the products on our website and with your penguin mouse! Is there anything out there you have seen that you would like to see on our webstore? please let us know! :) Kind regards


Love the mouse. Easy and comfortable to use in both hands. Highly recommend this product for anyone with RSI.

Hi there, thank you for your kind words, The penguin is our most popular mouse and is great for combating rising issues in the workplace such as RSI , so pleased to hear you love it! Kind regards




Loved the penguin mouse, made a real difference for my users who were having issues with standard mouse peripherals.

Hi there, thank you for your review, I am please to hear that you are happy with the Penguin and that it has helped. We highly recommend vertical mice as they eliminate forearm twisting which prevents RSI and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. kind regards




Bought for my husband and he loves it because it has set him free from RSI and it's as simple as using a gear stick. It keeps the hand in a much more natural position and he got used to it very quickly and wouldn't be without it.

Hi there, thank you for your lovely review! I am so pleased your partner is happy with the Penguin mouse. You're right - due to the position on a natural mouse this becomes twisted and can cause RSI. With a Penguin/vertical mouse this eliminates forearm twisting by allowing your hand, wrist and forearm to be in a more natural posture. Kind regards


My hand stopped to hurt after a week of using Penguin vertical mouse. It also takes a bit of time to get use to it and you need quite more free space on your desk to use it. Only minus I'd give is the right (or in this case bottom) button, sometimes I find it hard to press, especially if not pressed in the middle of the button.

Hi there, Thank you for your review, I am pleased to hear that you are happy with the penguin mouse. I have passed your comments on to our product team for consideration about the product design. Kind regards


It has been in use since we received it and there have not been any problems in connecting to the computer system.
The user is very satisfied.


Once I had the right size mouse, the experience of the mouse was good. Regrettably, I found that I couldn't control the cursor as fluidly and unobtrusively on my screen as I had hoped. I needed to spent so much energy navigating the mouse that the benefits of the vertical mouse design were equaled out. Regrettably, I had to decide to return the mouse.

Hi there,
thank you for your comments, I am sorry to hear that you had issues ordering the Penguin and with returns. Due to high demand we have been out of stock of the Penguin mice quite frequently recently which is why the penguin took longer to be delivered the second time round. We stock a wide range of mice in various styles such as vertical and roller mice as different styles will suit different people - it may have been that the penguin wasn't the mouse for you. If you would like to contact our customer care team we would be happy to help you find a mouse that be may suitable for your needs. please call us on 0845 345 0010 or email and one of our team will be happy to assist. Kind Regards
