Why Use An Ergonomic Mouse?

One of the best ways to protect yourself from possible RSI, repetitive strain injury, is to use an ergonomic mouse.  Ergonomic mice are made to be easy on the hand and wrist to not only help prevent injury but also to assist when you already have an injury such as carpal tunnel syndrome. By simply choosing an ergonomic mouse you can eliminate stress and strain and avoid future injury.  Even those who don't think they use the mouse excessively may unknowingly be subjecting themselves to future pain. Ergonomic mice typically provide special protection allowing your wrist to maintain a good position.  Those who already suffer from some RSI will want to use a vertical mouse such as the Renaissance mouse.  This allows for totally different hand movement eliminating the strain that standard mice can bring to an already tender area.  The special Smart Cat Touchpad is another ergonomic mouse option that reduces the pain associated with RSI injuries.
