Penguin Ambidextrous Vertical Mouse (Medium, Wired)
Reasons to Buy
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 now antimicrobial to inhibit the growth of bacteria - making it perfect for hot desking environments.
- 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
- 2 year warranty
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.

Q: What should I do if my wired Penguin mouse is on but the clicks do not work / the cursor won’t move / the cursor moves erratically or slowly / the Penguin loses connection / the scroll wheel doesn’t work?
- Remove the USB cable
- Reboot your computer and install all necessary updates
- Now firmly re-insert the USB cable directly into your computer, not via any multi USB hubs
- Click and move the Penguin until the cursor moves on the screen
- If the cursor does not move, then retry step 3 and plug the Penguin USB cable into a different USB port on your computer
- If it still does not work, plug the Penguin into another computer to check it is operational
- Failing all the above steps, please contact Customer Services with the serial number found on the base of the Penguin, similar to the format 'MDWD********'
Q: What should I do if I don't see a laser light on my wired Penguin mouse?
Your Penguin mouse uses an infrared (IR) laser, which is invisible to the human eye.
