Prevent Certain Types of Carpal Tunnel SyndromeDo you feel pins and needles in your fingers, loss of sensation or even a burning sensation? This may be the result of the awkward bent position your hand is forced into, when working with a mouse that does not give full support. You then get excessive pressure on the Median and Ulnar Nerve.

When you use a mouse that doesn’t fully support your hand, like a standard mouse or a vertical mouse, you run the risk of
Certain Types of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Guyons Canal Syndrome.
Two separate parts of the hand can be affected: the little and ring finger and the remaining part of the hand.
The full support by the HandShoe Mouse helps to prevent this.
“Reaching for your mouse” without the support of your forearm, or using a mouse that doesn’t fully supports your hand, forces your wrist into an awkward bent position, which may lead to serious neural effects.
Excessive pressure on the median and ulnar nerves, which control your hand and fingers, will initially become apparent by a feeling of pins and needles in the fingers, followed by loss of sensation and even a burning sensation.
This is what is commonly termed carpal tunnel syndrome.
Two separate parts of the hand can be affected: little finger plus ring finger and the remaining part of the hand. Special attention should be paid to support the side of the hand with the little finger, which is served by the more exposed ulnar nerve which runs through a separate tunnel.
A minute bone, the pisiform, acts like a protecting shield. So if you press your hand onto the desk and force it into a gripping, claw-like position, it is highly likely that you will experience pins and needles and a burning sensation.
Working from the wrist and pressing down on the desktop can increase this risk. The special shape of the HandShoe Mouse provides full support of the hand and fingers to prevent these complaints.
The Medical Center of the Dutch Erasmus University developed the HandShoe Mouse, especially to prevent people developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). More Research information can be found on the Research Page.
Recently a new standard was set with the Light Click buttons of the HandShoe Mouse which also helps people who are already suffering from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or RSI.
