Ergonomic Benefits

 

Avoids forearm twisting for comfort and good health

 

The patented shape supports your hand in a fully upright handshake position that eliminates forearm twisting. Many users said earlier generations of the Evoluent VerticalMouse relieved their hand, wrist, or arm pain. See the Evoluent web site for user comments.

An approved mouse of University of California at Berkeley

 

The Evoluent VerticalMouse 2 (an earlier model identical in concept) was evaluated in 2007 by a team at the health services clinic in UC Berkeley, including medical doctors, physical therapists, ergonomists, and administrators. It was found to be comfortable, easily adapted to, and promote a neutral wrist and forearm posture. It was the only vertical type mouse approved for staff use within UC Berkeley and for sale in the campus store at that time.*
