It is great to experience how the HandShoe Mouse is getting extremely popular as the most ergonomic mouse on earth.
We’re not surprised that we’re seeing our sales volumes surge, especially after adding the Light Click (LC) buttons as a new standard for “ergonomic mousing”.

Drs. ing. Paul C. Helder, Chief Technical Officer of Hippus, the producer of the HandShoe Mouse, is talking to and corresponding with many HandShoe Mouse users, all over the world and he is getting a lot of positive feedback.
Paul is especially keen to tell users that they must support their arm for the best ergonomic result.

HandShoe Mouse feedback

HandShoe Mouse with light click

We normally get feedback from our customers after they have used the HandShoe Mouse for a while.
Some people have tried several other products and were still suffering but now write to us us that they are back in the office again.

A great and very rewarding response came from Dr. Marika Zoll:

“I broke my arm badly and for a long time could not spend more than a few minutes at the computer. I tried several other mousses and still felt the strain of using my finger muscles that run up my arm across my wrist.

Then I found this mouse! Yey! I could never turn back to another mouse. I will warn you though that it is different and took a little getting used to. I think I was actually in the habit of holding my arm incorrectly with the other mice I used. This mouse forces you to lay your arm down and be supported or else you can’t manoeuvre well.

Once I understood how I got going I am so happy to say I am using my hurt arm now for hours per day without any strain. I plan to always use this mouse as a preventative medicine against other ailments like carpal tunnel. As I know I am vulnerable from my injury I won’t take any chances. I am a die hard fan of this product. OH and by the way, I am convinced that using this mouse saved my time physical therapy so the extra cost initially saved me money on the back end as I was able to cut my rehab short.

This is just one of the many reactions we’re getting from our customers all over the world.
It makes us proud and helps in our goal to offer the best ergonomic mouse in the market.

Evolution of the Mouse

evolution of computer mouse

Several years ago we only had the conventional mouse.
With this standard mouse, the hand has no other option but to grip and pinch the body in order to move the mouse, often from the wrist. Hand and fingers hover above the mouse buttons to prevent inadvertent clicking.

Then, there was the vertical mouse which was meant to be an alternative to the standard mouse, creating a better mobility. New university research showed, however, that any vertical position forces your hand in a handshake position. This results in significant stresses on the interosseous membrane in your forearm, which connects ulna and radius. It also affects your thumb and finger muscles. Due to the vertical, handshake position, gripping and pinching is still required, to handle the mouse.

The truly ergonomic HandShoe Mouse is the next step in the evolution of the mouse.
It was designed by a medical university and created to counter all the negative effects.
It supports your fingers, hand palm and wrist under an ideal slanted angle.

In this position the interosseous membrane is fully relaxed and there’s no more gripping and pinching!

In this one mintue video we show you the details of the evolution of the mouse:

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.
