Finger Joint Risk When Using A Computer Mouse

Finger PIP joint

We all know that working with a computer involves the risk of complaints in neck, arm, shoulders, hand and fingers.

So, did you know that there’s one finger joint you use most when scrolling and clicking? It incurs a serious risk of injury.
The joint is called the pip or proximal inter phalangeal joint.
Rather than as a simple hinge joint, we should regard it as a functional complex and beautiful assembly.

Just look at it and you will realize how vulnerable it is. The individual bones which make up the joint are only connected by tendons and bands.

When we use a regular computer mouse or most of the so called ergonomic mice, this happens: the loads in tendons and bands, incurred to stabilize the joint, when hovering the fingers over the buttons, may cause a lot of unnecessary strain.
To prevent this, we need to support the fingers. A contour which provides support while fingers are relaxed is what we want to see.
The HandShoe Mouse has been designed to provide such support. It allows fingers and hand to relax in a comfortable position.
Just put your hand on the body of the HandShoe Mouse and you’ll feel what we mean.
