Quick Overview

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.

Please note: the Penguin Ambidextrous Vertical Mouse in medium wireless and wired are currently out of stock and is due back in the next 6 weeks.

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.

13 Hour(s) ago Good The mouse is limited to a certain type of user, for whom it is excellent, and for whom I would rate it 10/10. However, for delicate CAD work, where pixel perfect selection is required, the large muscles of the arm are not as good as the muscles in the wrist for accurate and quick selections. I thin...

25-Aug-2015 Excellent I was experiencing aches and pains accross the back of my hand. This mouse means the hand is supported (albeit on its side) and all is now well, thank you. It took a short while to get used to the new movement, but am very happy now.
23-Aug-2015 Good good
17-Aug-2015 Excellent Working with my computer is no longer painful for my arm, thank you Posturite!
13-Aug-2015 Excellent Very good and comfortable, bought the correct size as per details. Still getting used to the movement as it's new. But very natural and not painful. I have very bad RSI and it really helps. I recommend!
05-Aug-2015 Good Good
04-Aug-2015 Excellent Helped solve the problem of sore wrist. Sizing guide not quite accurate- so initially ordered medium which was too big and the had to return it and pay more postage for replacement which was rather annoying.
22-Jul-2015 Good very good helps
21-Jul-2015 Good The quality of the Penguin mouse is inconsistent but the Rite Bar is excellent.
20-Jul-2015 Excellent In the weekprior to getting the Vertical Mouse I could barely work with significant pain in both hands (CTS) from using a cobentional mouse. Within days of gettingteh Penguin the pain had gone and has not retured. Superb product

Very comfortable. Used it for only 4 hours at the moment and it feels totally natural. Adjusted DPI to max setting and can now flick the cursor over both screens with small movements.
Smooth effortless control. The bird beats the mouse hands down!
Only negative I can think of is no "forwards/Backwards" button for browsing pages.
The Penguin is great. I was able almost instantly to have the same level of accuracy and control that I have with a traditional mouse, but with no hint of pain even after long sessions.
Only two things to mention. The first is very minor: every time you turn on your computer you have to press the DPI button on the Penguin to select the desired level. Would be nice if it could remember it.
Secondly I want to address something that Ive seen mentioned in reviews on other websites - that the buttons are cheap, weak or will wear out. Both buttons do have quiet, cushioned clicks, and in the case of the top, "left-click" button, quite a bit of travel. To be honest they do feel a little like they might not last, but after a few weeks of use Ive developed confidence that it is just that the design is "soft-click" and theyre fine. They just feel significantly different to the solid click you may be used to.
Very happy with my purchase, thank you.
I am on the computer 40hrs/week minimum. The pain in my right hand began to subside the day I began using the Penguin. After 1 week the pain and tenderness were gone. Aside from the ergonomic design, the Penguin is an excellent mouse. I had no problems switching to it. it took me less than a day to feel comfortable with it. Im glad it comes in different sizes as I have large hands and this mouse fits me very well. Although the mouse is straight up vertical its design allows for a relaxed grasp both vertically and with my hand turned towards the mouse which I really like because I find it more comfortable to change my hand position throughout the day.
Got one on the advice of my Chiropractor to relieve RSI symptoms and shoulder pain. Really pleased! Both symptoms have disappeared. The mouse took a couple of hours to get used to but now I dont even think about it. Really comfortable to use. Cant recommend it enough.
I have found this product, to cure very painful repetetive strain in the hand, superb....within a week all pain had gone, and has not returned after using the mouse for the last 5 months.
Its easy to use and get used to.
The left mouse click button has failed but I am finding the return and replace process very straightforward
Great product and service Posturite, am recommending to our Occupation Health dept
Penguin, of course! I was expecting this to take a bit of getting used to, but in fact it was very easy to make the transition. Love the position of the buttons and the rubberized rear section which helps make it feel organic and natural when held.
A normal flat mouse seems like the most alien object in my hand now. This is the future - it seems that we have progressed beyond mice to penguins. The only downside is that it doesnt double as a gaming joystick!
Ive tried a few different ergonomically designed mice, and this is far and away the best! Simple to set up and didnt take long to get used to. I wish I had this years ago!
This is a very clever design.
I began to suffer from severe pains in my right hand and wrist in February and wrist and was diagnosed as suffering from the early stages of RSI. I told by a physiotherapist that if I didnt modify my mouse use my condition would become progressively worse. The health and safety officer at work took immediate action and got me the penguin mouse; I have been pain free since I began using it in March. This is wonderful product, I am amazed that it is not more widely known about. At home I now use my mouse with my left hand – but am concerned that I may begin to develop similar problem with my left hand – I would like to be able to afford to have one at home and hope that as this product become more widely known and used, your prices will reduce and be more in line with other mouse products.
Wont suit everyone, but even using my bad wrist I found pain very much reduced / eliminated. Plus its easy to swap hands and the buttons and scroll wheel make sense and work well with either hand. Definitely worth a trial!
Wow, I have to say after using this for 7 hours straight on an 8-hour shift and then reverting to a standard mouse for the last hour, what a difference this has made to the way I use a mouse (or penguin). Firstly, it felt very natural to use for the first time (unlike a trackball, which takes a lot of getting used to). Secondly, when you revert to using a standard mouse after a long busy shift at the computer (I work in I.T. for a living), the standard mouse actually seems so unnatural and I wonder how I ever used one for so long before.
I cant say enough about this product. Ive had it for one day and it makes a huge difference in the way I work.
I would make a couple of suggestions to either the heavy or casual user:
1. Use the high or maximum DPI setting so theres less "jitter" and more close/precise control.
2. Use your control panel / mouse settings (Windows) to adjust the double-click (slow it down a bit), pointer speed and scrolling speed to an optimum setting. This will vary according to the users needs, so play around with these settings until youre happy with them.
