Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Explained

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Today, more and more people world wide realise that it is important to support your hand when using a computer mouse. If you’re using a mouse that doesn’t fully support your hand, you may eventually experience serious neural effects.

This short video explains why that happens: when you push your hand on the desk and force it in a gripping, claw-like position, your wrist is forced in an awkward, bent position. Tendons may become irritated and swollen.

Pins and Needles

This causes excessive pressure on the median nerve which controls your hand and fingers. First you will notice a feeling of “pins and needles” in the fingers, followed by loss of sensation and even a burning pain. This phenomenon is generally called carpal tunnel syndrome. The shape of the HandShoe Mouse provides full support of the hand and fingers to prevent this harmful pressure on the wrist. Please be aware that, even after providing relief from this pressure, the nerve stays tender and may still provoke pins and needles for weeks afterwards. But when you keep using this truly ergonomic mouse you should feel the difference!
