Ergonomic mouse devices are designed with a specific purpose in mind: to enhance the comfort of the user while mousing and to help prevent serious injury from long-term daily computer use.
A common problem that is reported after repeated use of standard input devices is hand and wrist pain, sometimes even running up the forearm. Regular mice are not designed for everyday use and therefore when they are used this often they trigger muscle tension and strain in the hands and wrists.
If ignored these symptoms can turn into something serious like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) or other Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI). The mice we offer are made to combat this discomfort by moving your hand and arm into a more natural position, safer for regular use.
Currently, the most popular and best-selling mice are the HandShoeMouse
and the Evoluent Vertical Mouse
, but all of the models shown below are chosen based on unique qualities that stand out among others.
We offer models for right or left-handed users, as well as some with wireless connectivity.

An ergonomic mouse
is one of the top 3 most important aspects of a highly efficient workstation. Along with ergonomic chairs
and ergonomic keyboards
, a new mouse can drastically improve comfort and productivity while computing. These mice are designed to position your hands in a more natural posture, thereby minimizing the risks of long-term damage from computing such as carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress injuries (RSI).
There are many different ergo mice on the market today, and while some are light years ahead of others in terms of design, they all rely on the basic principle of increasing user comfort. You will find mice in varying shapes, forms and colors, and some that look downright strange. We strive to clear up the confusion about these types of mice, and provide visitors with useful information that will help guide them to the best ergonomic mouse
for their setting.
If you use a computer on a daily basis then you are all too familiar with hand pain. There is no doubt about it, using a standard computer mouse for hours and hours every day will result in pain and strain, and if not addressed within a reasonable amount of time this can escalate to long-term injuries and conditions. Educating yourself on the different types of ergonomic mice available and reading other people’s reviews of each mouse can help you make a smart purchase.
Ergonomic mice vary in price but price alone cannot be the determining factor in the ultimate quality of the unit. You can find some for about $20, which will utilize only very basic ergonomic principles, and you can find mice upwards of $100 and beyond. The most expensive mice are usually cutting-edge and utilize various unique aspects in their design. Which mouse you need relies on a few different factors:
How often are you on the computer?
Do you primarily use a desktop computer or a laptop?
How long have you been using computers for?
What’s your budget when it comes time to buy a new mouse?
Once you can answer these basic questions you are already on your way to determining the best mouse for your particular needs.
