I am no stranger to ergonomic products. I’ve been wearing wrist braces for typing at work (and long periods of gaming or cross stitching) for over a decade now.
I have never had an ergonomic mouse before.
This mouse is unique in design – my husband actually figured out which was was up and down – and it literally looks like a neat shark fin when it is upright.
This is a right-handed mouse (no way around that), and your thumb goes on the left of the “fin,” your remaining fingers on the other side of the “fin”.
It does take some getting used to the position – but it allows for my wrist and arm to remain flat on my desk top, vs floating it above on a normal mouse.
If holding the mouse for long periods of time, it does cause my ring and pinky fingers to get still and a bit sore – this might not be an issue for people with larger hands.
It is also easier to use without my wrist guards on – the angle and positioning with my guards on doesn’t make it as glove-like of a fit as it does when I have no wrist guards on.
Clicking of the buttons is simple once your fingers figure out where everything is.
It definitely was not made for fast movements (i.e. like a gaming mouse), but for general computer purposes, does its job.
I absolutely LOVE that the USB end plugs right into any of our desk top computers, my laptop, and even our Smart TV – without a driver loading up.
Quality wise, it is sleek, feels like velvet, and durable material.
For anyone wanting to relieve pressure on the shoulders and neck, this would definitely be an asset for your computer needs.
