A Mouse That Stands Up for Comfort
At a Glance
I was a bit skeptical before I tested a preproduction unit, but within minutes the surprising comfort of working at an upright angle completely won me over. No longer was I twisting my forearm to accommodate the mouse--it accommodated me. Molded nicely to fit the hand, the mouse allowed my thumb to rest in a balanced position with access to a programmable thumb button. The mouse uses an optical sensor, which has no moving parts and is more accurate and reliable than the older, mechanical guide-ball system.
Even if you have no physical problem using a regular mouse, the VerticalMouse is an excellent $50 investment in preventive, pain-free mousing. And if your current mouse gives your forearm occasional cramps, the VerticalMouse could be a pointer in the right direction.
