Next month will see the March of the Penguins. That’s when we’ll be launching our exciting new Penguin ambidextrous vertical mouse – the first in the world to offer a seamless transition from right to left handed use.
The Penguin – you’ll understand why we’ve called it that when you see it – is the result of more than 18 months development work by our own ergonomic design team and the University of Brighton’s Product Development Centre in Hastings.
It comes in both wired (£49.95, ex-VAT) and wireless (£69.95, ex-VAT) versions, and standard and small sizes to fit most male and female hands. Its solid base reduces the amount of grip required to position the device without losing accuracy. And a ‘bow-tie’ switch at the front, which intuitively changes the direction of the scroll wheel, enables a simple transfer from right to left handed use.
Posturite’s CEO, Ian Fletcher-Price, comments: “Repetitive use of the dominant hand is one of the most common causes of health problems associated with mousing.
“With musculoskeletal conditions topping the list of reasons why people take time off work sick, that represents a massive cost to the country in both personal and economic terms. If the Penguin manages to prevent or ease the symptoms in even a small percentage of these cases, it will have done its job.
“We’re confident that once you’ve picked up a Penguin, you won’t want any other mouse. This is one Penguin that is really going to fly!”
