A good ergonomic mouse is one that fits you: the shape and size of your hand, how much clicking, scrolling and browsing you do, and your own preferences. Ergonomic mice come in many different variants, including vertical mice, roll bar mice, trackball mice, contoured mice and multimedia computer controllers for editors.
Think about how much time you spend moving your mouse around your desk. Most of the time you won’t even be aware that you’re doing it. Over time, these repetitive, focused movements overuse the same small muscles - which in some cases can lead to painful musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and affect your performance at work. Ergonomic mice are designed to encourage your hand into a more comfortable, neutral position so you can work for longer without discomfort.
