PC users control their mouse 53% of the time (while the keyboard sees just 26% usage); it is therefore important that you have the right mouse to tackle the symptoms of repetitive strain injury: enter this 'handshake'-grip device for healthier muscular movements.

The most comfortable position for your hand is actually in the shape of a handshake: this helps all your tendons and ligaments remain in optimum condition. However, most people use a traditional mouse, with hands palm-down, which is in fact an unnatural position that twists your whole wrist, elbow, and even causes complications to your neck and back.

The handshake position of the wrist when using the Evoluent 4 Mouse enables working in a comfortable natural position. It is ergonomic as it supports your hand in a fully neutral upright position that eliminates forearm twisting.

The product is precise, as its true optical resolution sensor moves the pointer quickly to reduce hand movements, and with short habituation time; this reduces the time your hands are in uncomfortable and unnatural positions.

The handshake position of vertical mouse keeps the wrist from bending as much to the side, while the forearm also turns inwards to a lesser degree. This means that muscle activity in the forearm is less that it would be when using a traditional mouse.

The Evoluent 4 Vertical Mouse is available in corded and wireless. For more information, including pricing, visit
