Ergonomics is defined as “the applied science of equipment design, as for the workplace, intended to maximize productivity by reducing operator fatigue and discomfort”, and given the number of hours that we spend sitting in front of our computers every day, it is important that we find the best ergonomic positions and equipment to reduce that stress on our bodies.  One way that we can do this is by investing in an ergonomic mouse.  There are a variety of ergonomic mice out there to choose from and it’s important to find one that will help you work more comfortably and efficiently to eliminate the stress on your hands, wrists, and arms that comes from long-term use.

The most important thing you want to look at when you consider buying an ergonomic mouse is the shape.  You want to find a shape that fits your hand but is a flat as possible, therefore reducing wrist extension.  You want a symmetrically shaped mouse over a curved mouse and often times the larger the better.  Mice that encourage arm motion over wrist motion and that encourage postural variety are better.  Other varieties are two-handed mice, pen-based mice and joystick mice.

All of the major manufacturers make one if not more types of ergonomic mice.  If you are considering getting one it is important that you go and try them all.  You want to find the one that fits your hand the best and makes your computer experience more enjoyable.  Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.  Again, we can be reached via our website, or you can give us a call at 1.877.GEEKABC (1.877.433.5222) for more information or to schedule an appointment.
