Evoluent Vertical Mouse VM4 Right Bluetooth Mac

Evoluent – world's first and original vertical handshake-grip mouse

The shape is thoughtfully sculpted for uncompromised comfort and easy-to-reach programmable buttons. No finger contortions are needed to operate the buttons.

The thumb rest has been reshaped to provide even more comfort over earlier versions.

Ergonomic Benefits


Avoids forearm twisting for comfort and good health


The patented shape supports your hand in an upright neutral posture that generally avoids forearm twisting. Many users, including medical doctors, ergonomists, and physical therapists, said the Evoluent 

VerticalMouse provides superior comfort and even relieved their wrist pain.*


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 adaptable, and to 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. 

Evoluent is suitable for those allergic to rubber 

People allergic to rubber can use the Evoluent mice with no harm. There is no latex or rubber in the Evoluent mice. The scroll wheel, for example, is of silicone.


Evoluent mice have a guarantee of 2 years.

An extra-wide lip along the bottom edge prevents the little finger from rubbing the desk.
