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”.

The Benefits of Using a HandShoe Mouse

With more and more people interacting with touchscreen devices rather than traditional computing inputs, you might be forgiven for thinking that the era of the mouse and keyboard is over. Even Microsoft has decided to embrace tactile displays, with Windows 8 doing away with the Start menu and turning its primary interface into a touch-friendly, tiled affair.

However, millions of people still need computer mice in order to interact with their PCs and there are plenty of different options on the market, from the basic to the specialist. The HandShoe mouse falls into the latter category, setting out to offer users the most ergonomic pointing experience on the market thanks to its fluid, intuitive design that, as the name suggests, fits your hand like a shoe fits your foot.

Using a mouse all day every day can leave you with more than just sore joints; you might also develop serious disorders like carpal tunnel syndrome, or a repetitive strain injury. This is because the standard design of a mouse is not all that ergonomic, requiring that you hold your hand in an unnatural position for an extended period, thus perpetuating these issues.

handshoe mouse benefitsThe imperfect design of mice also means that when you hold them, your fingers will often be hovering over the buttons while you grip the unit from the side. This means that your hand and arm are never at rest and this tension can build up over time and do you damage.

The HandShoe mouse has been created in order to combat the issues associated with standard pointing devices, with the design based on research conducted by a Dutch medical university.

The mouse itself is large enough to rest your entire palm on its surface, while your fingers and thumb will fall naturally into a comfortable position while still giving you access to all of the buttons typically found on this kind of device.

The idea is that your hand and wrist will be provided with support and the shape of the mouse, which has been awarded a patent, will not require any of the usual gripping or pinching which can be the root of physical problems caused by traditional mice.

Choice of Three Sizes

The HandShoe mouse does not take a one size fits all approach. Instead there is a choice of three sizes that accommodate people with small, medium or large hands.

There are of course other mouse devices out there that claim to be ergonomically designed, but few can match up to the HandShoe mouse when it comes to the quality of the experience. If you have to spend all day at a PC and do not believe that the touch screen revolution is going to trickle down to standard desktop machines for some time, this product could offer you the relief you require.

You can always use mobile phone contracts to get your fill of touchscreen interaction and then take advantage of the HandShoe mouse when you are at the office or in your den at home.

Fundamental Research Proof For Slanted Mouse

Fundamental research by a Dutch university has shown that extending your hand and continous hovering of your fingers above the buttons of a conventional computer mouse causes an un-interrupted excessive load of your hand and fingers. The same study shows that this is also the case when using most, so called, ergonomic mice.  Professor Han-Ming-Chen of national Taiwan university proved that the use of any non-slanted mouse will cause discomfort in your forearms and shoulders while using a mouse with a suitable slanted angle provides a more neutral hand position. It reduces forearm and shoulder muscle activity and thus the risk of RSI and carpal tunnel syndrome.

A too large slanted angle will again result in higher muscle activity and thus increase risk. On top of this it has been shown that continuous low intensity muscle activity may damage the finer muscle tissue, also known as the cinderella effect.

Field research has shown that the ideal, slanted HandShoe Mouse fulfills all ergonomic requirements as concluded from the world wide, extensive, university based research.
