A month or so ago I decided to undergo an ergonomic assessment at The Office. The results of my assessment yielded me with new office gadgets. I just love new office gadgets! Last week was a big week for me as most of my new stuff came in and I am now the proud owner of a keyboard tray (how awesomely nerdy are they?!) and an Evoluent mouse!
I used to quietly giggle at people who used keyboard trays thinking, "How strange it is that they just can't use the desk top!" And now I have been shown the light... People, if you don't have a keyboard tray, you need one!
Now you might have noticed that the mouse in my picture looks different than most mice on the market. And that's because it is. It is an Evlouent vertical ergonomic mouse. This mouse is the most comfortable mouse I have ever used in my life! Instead of rotating your arm to an unnatural position, the mouse supports the natural shape of the hand without twisting your arm into an uncomfortable stance as shown below.
Voila! No more crazy arm twisting at work (other than what your boss and co-workers do!). Another plus is that the design is super neat and it glides like a warm knife through butter!
With the use of this mouse, the strange tingly feeling that I used to get from time to time all the way up my arm has vanished and my hand doesn't feel as fatigued after a day of computer work, which lets face it - is almost every day! At first I thought that having the buttons on the side of the mouse would be hard to get used to, but within minutes of turning it on, I was cruising around like it was instinct. I love the thumb rest. It just props my little thumb up in the most comfortable of ways. Makes me wish I would have done my assessment sooner! If you have the chance, I highly recommend you trying it out!
I like this mouse so much, it's on my list of things to buy when we get moved into the new house!
Images of the best mouse ever.
I was not compensated for sharing about this mouse. It's just so fantastic the story had to be told!
