Best Ergonomic Mouse Has Rechargeable Battery

best ergonomic mouse

When we designed the wireless HandShoe Mouse we wanted to provide as much freedom as possible. First of all you should be able to work with the mouse for several weeks before re-charging the battery and secondly you may want sufficient distance between the mouse and the communication antenna.

So we fitted a large lithium ion battery and made sure the battery life is such, that you can use the HandShoe Mouse for many hours a day, seven days a week. Normally the battery is still not empty after four weeks. We advise you, however, to charge at regular intervals, for example once a week on the same day during lunch, as long as you keep your computer switched on. If you forget it and your battery is almost fully run down, you will be warned by a flashing light under the translucent scroll wheel. You then have to connect the mouse cable to charge the battery. You can continue using the mouse, as long as you leave the antenna in place for communication. When the battery is totally flat, you may have to wait a couple of minutes as the mouse needs at least some power to work.

Watch the one minute video showing you how to charge the HandShoe Mouse battery:

Ergonomic Mouse Prevents Pain

Mouse Pain?

Do you ever have tired or painful muscles in your hand, wrist or forearm after working with a computer mouse? The most common reason is that a conventional mouse forces the muscles in your forearm to continuous activity. You may end up with pain in your arm unless you take precautions.

In this video we will give you the technical explanation which is based on university research.
The anatomy of forearm and hand explains the sources of your complaints: hovering of your hand and fingers over the mouse requires action of the so called extensor digitorum muscle.
To hold onto your mouse another set of muscles is continuously active. You need the extensor carpi ulnaris to work from the wrist.

Best Ergonomic Mouse

In order to prevent the pains caused by a conventional computer mouse, we developed the best ergonomic solution:  the HandShoe Mouse. This mouse is taking all aspects into consideration. Now your muscles will stay relaxed as your hand is fully supported so there is no more hovering of your fingers. And you don’t have to grip it to move it. Last but not least, the support angle allows for easy movement from the wrist.

This video gives a clear view of the muscles in your arm and how they are affected when using a computer mouse:

New Research: The Ideal Ergonomic Mouse Shape

ergonomic mouse support

Do you feel stresses and strains when working with your computer mouse?
At the Erasmus Medical University in the Netherlands we developed the truly ergonomic mouse, the HandShoe Mouse. It’s bio design and special shape is based on fundamental and field research.

Ergonomic Mouse for Optimal Relaxation

We noticed that the best way to realize optimal relaxation when you work with a mouse is to support your arm and hand at an angle of about thirty degrees.
This angle creates maximum relaxation in your muscles. Your body is generally built in such a way that it likes this position best. So don’t force your hand flat or in a vertical position on the desk. The HandShoe Mouse fully supports your hand in just the ideal, relaxed way. It acts like a saddle for your hand and fingers. You can let your fingers rest on the body of the HandShoe Mouse and relax the palm of your hand as well.

The shape of this ergonomic mouse allows you to slide it over your desk without having to grip it. If you place your hand on a HandShoe Mouse you will relax your hand, thumb and fingers.

An Ergonomic Mouse Needs to Support Your Fingers Too

It is interesting to know that a recent study by Professor Van Zwieten of Hasselt University Medical Center, has, again, confirmed the significance of supporting the fingers especially to prevent unnecessary stresses and strains in the joints (ref. Publication by prof. K.J. van Zwieten et al: ” Functions of some finger joints while handling the PC mouse, and their possible relevance for computer aided learning”) . The research was performed in a group of e-learning students who were frequently using a traditional computer mouse for their projects.

This new research in Belgium concluded and confirmed that the highly intense use of the fingers, with a conventional computer mouse, would require a different solution like provided by the HandShoe Mouse, which supports both hand and fingers, owing to it’s special shape. This solves the need to support a finger which has to be bent to operate the switches.

This full support results in relaxation of hands and fingers which could go as far as relaxation of the upper body like neck, shoulders and arm.
