The "Mouse" has been around for over 20 years and has been available in a wide variety of styles and shapes. Vertical Mouse has created a new ergonomic model that supports your hand in a natural, handshake position. Reduces repetitive use injuries
Hand position while using Vertical Mouse
This mouse has five buttons although these images show only four. Three are on top, for the fingers and one is under the scroller. A thumb button will be added to the production model.
The Vertical Mouse retails for $39.95 and will be available after August 2002.
Because of its shape and design, the Vertical Mouse keeps the arms in a comfortable, relaxed position
Less bone twist with Vertical Mouse
A conventional, horizontal mouse forces the hand and forearm to be twisted almost 90 degrees out of the neutral position. This results in wrist discomfort after prolonged use and could lead to long term injury.
Increased bone twist with conventional, horizontal mouse
Some conventional mice are slightly slanted which does reduce arm twisting, but not as much as the new Vertical Mouse.
