Reinventing the mouse

Subject: General Tech | February 10, 2006 - 04:03 PM |

The Evoluent VerticalMouse 2 reviewed at Extremetech is exactly what it sounds like.  A mouse that sits on it's side, so that while you use it, your hand is in the "handshake" position.  Find out how well it worked, and if it will help with that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome you managed to get after the 7 day LAN party.

"Unfortunately, Evoluent's VerticalMouse 2, which we review today, doesn't win any crazy and kooky

awards. In fact, it's best described as a regular-looking mouse that's been turned 90 degrees

clockwise (counterclockwise for the lefties). The idea is to allow your arm to control the mouse

in a more natural position, with the thumb up, in a hand-shaking position. Doctors who specialize

in ergonomics consider this position preferable. And because it resembles a regular mouse, there's

no real learning curve when you start using it"
