Hippus N.V. today confirms a new premier partnership with Comfort Group Ltd., appointing them as distributor for Scandinavia and Finland. The UK based company, led by Danish management, is headed by Martin Holm.
A long-time specialist within the ergonomic market, he will be putting his expertise and extensive knowledge of local specialists to practise in bringing increased accessibility to the HandShoe Mouse for the people of Scandinavia and Finland.

The appointment of a new distributor for this area comes at an exciting time for HandShoe Mouse.
Having seen a big increase in the recognition of this product across 2016, the demand for this evidence based ergonomic mouse is skyrocketing – thanks in no small part to the research that went into its development. This niche detail offers the HandShoe Mouse a guarantee and stamp of approval that no other ergonomic mouse on the market can currently claim to have.
The HandShoe Mouse is even seen as the next step in ‘ergonomic mouse evolution’, it’s supporting research making many older designs obsolete.

Number one ergonomic mouse

The HandShoe was even voted the number one ergonomic mouse by Ergonoma, Europe’s leading ergonomics magazine, in their first publication this year (2017). Having independently assessed it, they praised it for its natural feel and the quality components used in its design.

Hippus CEO, Sjoerd Eisma, is hugely enthusiastic about the appointment of Martin’s company. “I’ve known Martin for years before we started working together and his expertise cannot be understated. He knows all the right people to talk to and how to make computer users more comfortable. I know he’ll make HandShoe Mouse a success in The Nordics.”

Martin Holm, CEO of Comfort Group Ltd., added: “HandShoe Mouse has had me blown away since I started using it myself. There is simply no other computer mouse out there that has the same evidence backing – I’ve asked! With HandShoe Mouse we will make more computer users comfortable and more productive. Productivity and comfort is in our DNA and I look forward to working with Sjoerd and his team”.

OPC ERGONOMICS SOLE HANDSHOE MOUSE DISTRIBUTOR AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND

Hippus N.V., the Dutch owner and producer of the truly ergonomic, evidence-based HandShoe Mouse, is delighted to announce a new premier partnership with OPC Ergonomics. Our chosen partner will distribute the HandShoe Mouse in Australia and New Zealand with immediate effect and as sole distributor.

The patented HandShoe Mouse is being sold by an increasing number of Distributors and Resellers all over the world. Since the HandShoe Mouse is viewed as a truly ergonomic mouse, based on extensive university research, it can be concluded that the shape of the HandShoe Mouse is unique and it’s the only ergonomic mouse which fully supports the hand. It prevents gripping and pinching and the shape and curvature allow your hand, fingers and forearm to relax into a natural position. This means that the major causes of Repetitive Strain Injury and/or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, often referred to as “mouse pain”, are avoided.

The HandShoe Mouse was initially introduced into Australia on a wider scale by several successful Resellers who have adopted the HandShoe Mouse as their preferred ergonomic mouse. Hippus and OPC Ergonomics feel that the time is right to increase their marketing efforts and support to these Resellers and end users and to generate even more attention for this successful ergonomic product both in Australia and New Zealand. In recent years many international ergonomists have adopted the HandShoe Mouse as their favourite ergonomic mouse. After suffering pain in their fingers, hands, arms and neck, many customers have been able to get back into action, using this comfortable and truly ergonomic mouse.

Drs. Ing. Paul Helder, Chief Technical Officer of Hippus and one of the inventors of the HandShoe Mouse, is keen to add: The HandShoe Mouse is presently the only ergonomic mouse in the world with an extensive research background, a 3 year warranty and worldwide individual support, which is second to none!”

HandShoe Mouse Prevents Mouse Pain

Close

Your computer and mouse prompt you to respond rapidly in order to get tasks done quickly.
Tension is exacerbated by this type of interaction. Your fingertips provide feedback that you are tense, but you probably won’t register this.

If you continually grip your mouse, tension builds up. With a conventional mouse for example, you introduce a number of forces in your thumb and finger joints and even torque your joints.

Grip forces causing mouse pain

You may think you can protect yourself against these harmful effects when switching to a so called ergonomic mouse, such as one with a vertical or semi vertical position. These may remove major torque forces in your finger joints but introduce substantial grip forces and thereby affect your finger and thumb joints.

So you need to look for a shape which supports your hand and fingers and eliminates these forces. Scientific studies suggest that these loads may cause inflammation of tissues and result in arthritis. The HandShoe Mouse provides the solution: it fully supports your hand and fingers in the optimal position and thus protects against harmful forces.

This video shows exactly which forces cause mouse pain:
