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.
