BEST ERGONOMIC MOUSES

Fix your wrist, finger and arm aches and pains 

Types of Ergonomic Mouse

Sensation or pain in wrist/fingers is a very common problem people report when they spend long hours using mice. The issue happens when the wrist presses against the surface for long hours, hence straining the main central nerve which connects wrist and fingers to the arm. A vertical mouse solves that since it is held vertically with fingers, just like you hold a joystick.  This holding technique gives arm a more natural position, which results in no strain on the main nerve, eliminating wrist pain and finger pain with continuous usage.

Finger and Wrist Pain

Vertical Mouse

If you’re not experiencing much pain right now but have started feeling discomfort while using your mouse, the suggestion would be to go with a traditional ergonomic mouse. It is an improvised version of a traditional mouse with right curves and shape changes. This ensures your palm and fingers fit more perfectly and your arm and wrist lie in a more natural position, reducing strain on fingers, palm, wrist and arm. Owing to the design being similar to traditional mice, you would not have a hard time switching.

Overall Discomfort in fingers, palm, wrist and arm

General Ergonomic Mouse

Numbness and pain in the forearm or upper-arm is usual due to long hours on the mouse. This happens for you constantly need to move the mouse back and forth to move the cursor. If arm is your focus area, the recommendation would be to go with Trackball mouse. This mouse has a big trackball placed on top surface of the mouse wherein you can use your fingers to move the cursor instead of sliding your mouse around. Because your hand stays in one place, it would stay at rest for a long time, eliminating the tingling and pain in the arm.
