The Only Truly Ergonomic Mouse Based On Peer Reviewed University Research
Did You Know?... One In Six Workers Are Suffering!
Did you know that one in six workers are suffering from some form of RSI or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, mostly related to intensive use of a traditional computer mouse?
The HandShoe Mouse has been developed by a Dutch medical university and has been tested in a number of large organisations for almost two years. During these tests we saw many people who were suffering from RSI or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, returning to work.
The reason is that the unique and patented shape of the HandShoe Mouse fully supports your hand in the ideal relaxed position and prevents gripping and pinching, which is what occurs when you use a standard mouse.

However excellent the functionality of the standard computer mouse – we all use it with great ease – most of the time it is too small for the hand while its shape forces your hand and fingers in an unnatural gripping position. It lacks comfort and the gripping and pinching, as well as the hovering of your fingers above the mouse buttons are the major sources of complaints which may lead to Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
The Research team has also tested a vertical mouse and found that gripping and pinching of a vertical mouse is still a potential source of RSI or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Another medical university found that with a vertical mouse the “interosseous membrane” is extremely taut “stressed”) which also may lead to complaints.
The HandShoe Mouse was developed with all complaints in mind. Support of your hand and fingers prevents gripping and pinching and your arm is supported at the ideal angle of 25-30 degrees which makes sure your forearm is completely relaxed. So, you will understand that the HandShoe Mouse is the latest technology in the Evolution of the computer mouse as shown here:
HandShoe Mouse: The Ultimate Solution to Prevent RSI and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The special shape of the HandShoe Mouse allows your hand and wrist to float without any effort.
Its full hand and finger support prevents skin contact with the desktop, unlike most computer mouse types where you press down on the desktop and work from the wrist or rub over the desktop while sliding. Both of these actions are a source of complaints.
With a HandShoe Mouse you don’t need to hover your fingers over the buttons: Only a minor effort is required to switch while your thumb rests on its support. This prevents thumb action which can otherwise be harmful.
We advise to sit and work in a relaxed fashion, with your forearm supported (on your desk and/or on the armrest of your chair) when using the HandShoe Mouse. This will protect you against RSI and certain types of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS).
Summarizing, the patented bio-design of the HandShoe Mouse is the ultimate solution to prevent RSI and CTS while it allows you to work in a relaxed fashion.
HandShoe = “Glove”
In Dutch, the word HandShoe means “Glove”. The HandShoe Mouse “fits like a glove” or, like some people say “feels like a saddle for the hand”.
The HandShoe Mouse is available in three standard sizes (Small, Medium and Large) which are available in a wireless and a wired version. There is also a wired right handed Extra Small version available. So, size matters and there is a HandShoe Mouse for everyone! You can order your own HandShoe Mouse here.
The HandShoe Mouse is developed, based on proper university research and measurements and not on beliefs of individuals.
