Is Wrist Pain Related To Your Armrest?

It is important to realize that the position of the hand and the motion of the hand by just moving from the wrist can have significant negative effects.

Pain in the elbow region is sometimes attributed to resting the elbow on the armrest of the chair. This is and cannot, however, be the source of this type of complaints.
 
In fact, it appears that repetitive motions of the hand when handling the computer mouse by moving the wrist sideways, may gradually lead to some swelling (hypertrophy) of the muscle that enables the wrist to flex. This muscle is situated around the elbow. In some cases this swelling may result in painful nerve compression in the elbow region.
This complaint can very easily occur with the use of a conventional mouse. The user usually grips the mouse and moves the hand from the wrist which rests on the desk.
The bio-design of the HandShoe Mouse is made in such a way, that your wrist, hand, and fingers are fully supported. That’s how the HandShoe Mouse allows a free movement from the forearm and wrist. This design prevents unnecessary friction.

Prevent Repetitive Strain Injury

Did you know that one in six workers are suffering from some form of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)  or Carpal Tunnel  Syndrome, mostly related to intensive use of a traditional computer mouse?

Welcome to the home of the truly ergonomic computer mouse, the HandShoe Mouse, the only mouse that fits like a glove.

The HandShoe Mouse has been developed by a Dutch medical university and has been tested in large organizations for almost two years.  During these tests we saw many people, who were suffering from Repetitive Strain Injury, coming back to work again.

The unique and patented shape of the HandShoe Mouse fully supports your hand in the best, relaxed position and prevents gripping and pinching like you do when you use  a standard  mouse. The HandShoe Mouse comes in three different sizes, depending on the size of your hand. Please have a look around our website and check out the research page to see for yourself which  difference the HandShoe Mouse makes.
