Does your hand get tired after using a mouse for a while? Maybe your wrist feels numb or even a bit of pain. It might be time to consider a vertical mouse. This type of mouse promotes good ergonomics by encouraging a “neutral position” when you hold or grip the mouse, reducing the chance of injury. Big thanks to Evoluent for allowing us to test and review their award winning Evoluent Vertical Mouse 4.
The Evoluent is a pioneer of the vertical form mouse when they came up with the tall shape that places the main mouse buttons at a steep angle in 1994. Since then, the company has continued to refine the design. The Evoluent 4’s three main mouse buttons are placed at a sharp angle to guide your wrist into the most natural position possible as you hold it. There is a lip on the left side to rest your pinky finger. You will find a DPI control button as well on the main side to easily change the mouse speed depending on the task you’re working on.
The Evoluent Mouse was named the best mouse for carpal tunnel syndrome by Ergonomic Trends.
Let us see what they have to say about themselves on their website:
About Evoluent Mouse
In 1994, a revolutionary ergonomic mouse was invented and patented by Jack Lo due to discomfort he had when using a conventional mouse. His invention was the first mouse to support a hand in a fully upright handshake position for eliminating the arm twisting required by ordinary mice. Jack continues to pursue his goal of popularizing the VerticalMouse, and hopefully help more people cure and prevent mouse injuries. He continues to develop more products with the philosophy that his products must be different from all the me-too products and provide real benefits.
