What Causes Mouse Pain?

This one minute video shows you clearly why you get pain in your hand and fingers when using a conventional computer mouse.  The HandShoe Mouse provides full support for your hand and prevents gripping and pinching. That’s exactly what makes the difference with a standard mouse.

Causes of Mouse Pain

When we think of pain, we think of broken bones and the muscle pains of professional athletes. We also think of people who do hard physical work. In this age of technology, however, there are many others suffering from severe pain.

Hand and Wrist Complaints

More and more computer users are suffering from hand and wrist complaints caused by extensive use of a regular computer mouse. Research into this issue was done by Erasmus University in the Netherlands who identified a number of key causes of these complaints. One example is gripping and pinching of a regular mouse, while holding it but a standard mouse is often too small for the hand. This can cause tension and pain as far away as the shoulder and neck.

Mouse Pain From Hovering

Another common cause is what we call hovering, when a person’s fingers hover above the mouse buttons to prevent inadvertent clicking. This creates tension on finger and arm muscles, which can again cause pain all the way up to the neck. Lastly, a vertical mouse forces the hand in an upright position, the two major bones in the arm are then parallel to one another. This causes serious muscle strain and may lead to RSI.

Is The HandShoe Mouse Too Big For Your Desktop?

Close

Some people think that the HandShoe Mouse is big, but is it too large for your desktop?

Actually not, because this ergonomic mouse is just as large as your hand.
Do you believe your hand is too large for the desktop? Of course not!

As a matter of fact, the HandShoe Mouse is the only mouse that fully supports your hand and fingers,
including a thumb support.
And as you probably know you should rest your forearm and hand on the desktop anyway.
This is to prevent unnecessary muscle exertion (a difficult word for too much tension in your muscles.)

It’s also fine to support your arm on the armrest of your chair, as long as you support your arm.
Whatever the mouse size, you do need space for your hand on your desk, whether you have a HandShoe mouse
or any other non-ergonomic mouse.

Just follow our advice and set the cursor speed to medium.
Then you only need half an inch or less than two centimeters around your mouse to move the cursor diagonally
over a twenty inch screen.
This is similar to the use of a regular mouse but the HandShoe mouse, gives full relaxation and reduces the risk
of strains and pains.
