People donâ€™t realize that using computers for extended periods of time are not the best way to treat our bodies. For decades ergonomics have been used to help us use our bodies naturally to avoid long term damage to our joints, muscles, and overall bodies. Many do not think of the mouse when they think of ergonomic devices but it is also important to think about to avoid problems such as carpel tunnel or Repetitive Stress Injuries. This mouse is a typical mouse but has a separate base and upper portion where the hand rests separated by a pivot design coined as ErgoMotion. It is not intended to move your hand a lot, which it can if you like, but it allows your hand to be free to rotate and move naturally as the mouse is used which is important to keep increased blood flow preventing irritation to the tendons and reducing the chance of injury. I like it and have replaced my traditional unit for good for this unit.
To see if this is hype Smartfish partnered up with the New York Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) to test the affects motion have on users who use computers. This research was applied to the design of this mouse.
This mouse would be the perfect stocking stuffer for that tech geek on your list.
