Does Your Mouse Properly Support Your Palm?

When you use a computer mouse, the only way to prevent unnecessary tension is by using a mouse that provides proper palmar support. The way to realise this low tension, is with a mouse body that utilises a hand-supporting ball shape as a rest for the hand’s palm.

Palmar Support

The palm is ideal for supporting the hand, due to its strong membrane and the fatty tissue at the bases of our fingers. Naturally though, we need to be able to use the mouse buttons.When you use a conventional, or a vertical mouse, both your fingers and thumb operate the mouse.
This button clicking causes action and reaction forces in your fingers and thumb, introducing significant stresses to your hand muscles. This is a common source of forearm complaints. This theory is supported by anatomical observations and field research.

Prevent Unneccesary Strains

A mouse body with a fitting contour to support the palm of your hand and fingers can prevent these reaction forces.
The body of the mouse not only supports your hand, but also acts as a counter balance, absorbing the forces and preventing  unnecessary strain to your hand, wrist or fingers.
