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.

This mouse works very well, including facility to switch hands. It is much easier on the hands and fingers and has removed the repetitive stress pain I was feeling from an ordinary mouse.


Works well most of the time, very occassionally a click doesn't register. Very comfortable and easy to set up and use.


Once I became familiar with using the mouse it was very easy and certainly has made an improvement.


Brilliant piece of equipment


Such a relief to my hands and fingers using this Penguin Mouse. Great that you can swap it between each hand. I no longer suffer from aching fingers. Easy to use, like a joy stick - everyone in my office think its very 'space-age'. The wireless model is great as there's enough wires already which surround my laptop so not having any with this mouse makes my work space a lot tidier! The mouse is easy to maneouvere,, very light. It's also quick to charge the internal battery and I like the way the letter 'P' lights up each time the mouse is moved. It's a definite talking point in the office and I wouldn't be surprised if some of my colleagues order one for themselves soon!

I should have bought one years ago when I first saw it on the Posturite Website.


good product, Im sure I will need to order another one at some point


Perfect for my nerve surgery recovery


The product did not suit me. I know people who are very happy with it, so I had expected it to be helpful, but in my case it was not. I therefore returned it.

Hi Claudia

I'm sorry to hear that the Penguin Mouse was not suitable for you - our Customer Services team will be happy to discuss alternative options if needed - feel free to contact them on 0345 345 0010.

Kind regards, Lucy


User is very happy with the Posturite mouse.


Although the new position of the mouse has helped with my wrist problems, the actual performance of the mouse is poor. Intermittent signal loss; occasional locked select buttons causing things to be selected when I don't want them to be... leads to a very frustrating experience and impacts on my workflow, which requires accurate mouse control. Would not recommend to anyone other than light 'home' users.

Hi Andrew

We are naturally pleased that the Penguin mouse hand position has helped with your wrist issues. 

With regard to the potential internal operating issues with the Penguin mouse, please do contact our customer services department at and we can send you a troubleshooting guide which hopefully may find a solution for you. Alternatively you can download it here:, under the Documentation tab.  If this does not help then please make contact again and we can work through an alternative solution for you.

Kind regards, Lucy
