Home of the Truly Ergonomic Mouse - the HandShoe Mouse
We are determined to offer you the best ergonomic mouse in the world.
Did you know that one in six workers are suffering from some form of RSI or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, mostly related to intensive use of a traditional computer mouse?
The HandShoe Mouse has been developed by a Dutch medical university and has been tested in large organisations for almost two years. During these tests we saw many people who were suffering from RSI or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, coming back to work again.
The reason is that the unique and patented shape of the HandShoe Mouse fully supports your hand in the best relaxed position and prevents gripping and pinching, what you do when you use a standard mouse.
However excellent the functionality of the standard computer mouse - we all use it with great ease - most of the time it is too small for the hand while its shape forces your hand and fingers in an unnatural gripping position. It lacks comfort and the gripping and pinching, as well as the hovering of your fingers above the mouse buttons are the major sources of complaints which may lead to Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
The Research team has also tested a vertical mouse and found that gripping and pinching of a vertical mouse is still a potential source of RSI or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Another medical university found that with a vertical mouse the "interosseous membrane" is extremely taut ("stressed") which also may lead to complaints.
The HandShoe Mouse was developed with all complaints in mind. Support of your hand and fingers prevents gripping and pinching and your arm is supported at the ideal angle of 25-30 degrees which makes sure your forearm is completely relaxed.
Prevent RSI and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Instead of over-using your hand and wrist, your arm will most of the time let the optical HandShoe Mouse float without any effort. The shape allows for the hand to continuously rest on the mouse body in a relaxed fashion, so there is no skin contact between your hand and the desk.
As a result there is no skin irritation as caused by excessive rubbing when moving a conventional mouse. Contrary to conventional computer mice you don't have to continuously lift (hover) the fingers, to prevent accidental switching.
The buttons of this ergonomic mouse are positioned in line with the fingers. Only minor pressure is required to click the buttons. The thumb rest of the HandShoe Mouse allows for a relaxed position and prevents excessive thumb action which can be harmful.
HandShoe = "Glove"
In Dutch the word HandShoe means "Glove".
The HandShoe Mouse "fits like a glove" or, like some people say "feels like a saddle for the hand". The HandShoe Mouse is available in three standard sizes (Small, Medium and Large) which are available in a wireless and a wired version. So size matters and there is a HandShoe Mouse for everyone!
The HandShoe Mouse is developed, based on proper university research and measurements and not on beliefs of individuals.
The user friendly HandShoe Mouse is an ergonomic mouse available in 3 standard sizes: Small, Medium and Large.
The HandShoe Mouse is plug and play; no special software drivers for Mac or PC are needed.
Controls consist of 2 buttons at an ergonomic position and a scroll wheel fitted with a switch mechanism. The large size HandShoe Mouse has a third mouse button. This mouse button is not programmable; it has the same function as the click function underneath the scroll wheel.
