Conventional Mouse: Hand Flat On Desk

ergonomic mouse is betterDo you realize that with a conventional mouse your hand is flat on the desk?
So to move the mouse, you must move your wrist sideways.

While doing this, your wrist is restricted in its motion.

This is alleviated by the angle of your hand when you use the HandShoe Mouse.
With a conventional computer mouse though, repetitive motions of the hand, by just moving the wrist,
can lead to serious complaints. This was shown by Professor van Zwieten in a university publication.

Reshape of Ergonomic Mouse: Forget Handshake

In the past, various adjustments have been tried and applied to the shape of the ergonomic mouse.

ergonomic mouseModels vary from lightly slanted to a vertical or handshake position. But professor van Zwieten proves that this handshake position should be re-considered, because in this position the interosseous membrane between the two forearm bones, ulna and radius, is taut. Muscles which are used in a handshake position originate from this membrane and can thus provoke serious complaints.

That’s why we advise to use the HandShoe Mouse instead and mainly by moving the forearm.
Of course when a minute motion is required to select an object on screen, you can move the mouse from the wrist too.
