ergonomic mice

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.

Why buy an ergonomic mouse?

Over the last thirty or forty years, the use of computers has proliferated. While in 1985 only 13% of UK households had a desktop computer, now that percentage is at least 85%. With most of us using computers daily - often for long periods of time, we’re now starting to see the impact of this on our bodies.

‘Normal’ computer mice (ones that have not been designed by ergonomists) require the user to make small, exact movements with their hands when they click, scroll and move about the desktop. These tiny muscles can be easily overworked, causing pain in these areas:

  • Top of the hand
  • Around the wrist
  • Along the forearm and elbow

What are some problems associated with using a computer mouse?

  • Repetitive strain syndrome - pain, tenderness, stiffness, tingling, numbness, or cramp caused by repetitive movement.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome - pins and needles, thumb weakness, dull ache in hand or arm caused by compression of the median nerve (which controls sensation and movement in the hands)

Our ergonomic mice prevent unnecessary strain on the hand to reduce the risk of these problems. Many of our models have adjustable settings depending on what functions you need when you use the computer. This limits the need to move your hand between the mouse and keyboard, a movement which can cause aches and pains in the shoulders and back.

Whether your wrists are just starting to ache, or you have been diagnosed with RSI or carpal tunnel syndrome, it’s time to invest in an ergonomic mouse.

What are the benefits of using an ergonomic mouse?

  • Supports your hand to prevent unnecessary strain.
  • Helps prevent aches, pains and injuries.
  • Comfortable and pleasant to use.
  • Strongly recommended for people who use computers on a daily basis.
