Vertical Mouse

One of the problems with a standard mouse is that the wrist must be turned to a palm down (pronated) position in order to manipulate the mouse. This posture must be maintained while the mouse buttons are being clicked, adding to the stress on the wrist. A vertical mouse is built to completely eliminate pronation. To operate a vertical mouse the hand is held in the "handshake" position, which greatly reduces wrist stress.

A vertical mouse can greatly reduce the symptom of mouse finger pain ("mouse finger"). Also, becouse of their vertical design, they take less hand force to hold and move, which can reduce thumb pain ("mouse thumb") and wrist pain while gripping the mouse.

A vertical mouse is usually built for either the left or right hand. So for these models, if you want to switch hands while operating you would require both a left and right handed version. Some vertical mouse models are "ambidextrous" and can be used by either the left or right hand without the need to purchase two models. Ergo Vancouver currently carries two ambidextrous vertical mice: the Penguin and the DXT Ergonomic Mouse.

Mouse pad alternative: Due to the different orientation of your hand, a vertical mouse can be a little awkward at first. Using a Wow!Pad Microthin Mousing Surface can really help in the adjustment to vertical mousing.
