Summary: i picked this item up, still needing two more surgeries in my wrists, and boy oh howdy am i glad i did. it took a little time to adjust to its unique style/design, but i am glad i took the option because i am loving it. it could a little less expensive but it will do fine for my needs. the scroll feature allows for a nav.
Excerpt: I have had problems with my hands stiffening up and a little arthritis too. This mouse helped SO Much! Takes time to get use to it but afterwards what a pleasure to use. Don't want any other kind.
Summary: There's always an adjustment period for using any good ergonomic mouse. If there wasn't then I would assume the mouse would lead to a similar stress on hand/finger/wrist.
Pros: Had one of these or like for more than 5 years and can't do without. Once you get over the first month of use, there's no problem using it over a regular mouse. Cord is nice a long (longer than any I've seen). Never had connectivity or other problems. Exactly what my wrist needed to alleviate repetitive stress due to my constant use.
Summary: Unless your palm is significantly wider than 3.5" I recommend the Small size. The 550 has a better surface and optical sensor than the 500, but the batteries need to replaced from time to time.
Pros: Much more comfortable than standard mouse designs. Virtually eliminates hand strain. Rubberized surface feels good and does not collect too much dirt. Includes 3 mouse buttons. Wireless removes annoying cables.
Cons: My hand is 3.5" across the palm and the Large size is way too big for me. The wireless signal is not that strong, so it helps to be near the receiver. The batteries add weight.
Pros: I've had a 3M Renasaince mouse for over 15 years, so I know what I'm talking about. I was having wrist pain problems, and this solved it. It's a little awkward at first, but once you get used to it, nothing else will do. Albert

Pros: Fixed all my pains of working full time as a computer artist. I used to max out at 40 hours of computer work per week and I would be in severe pain. With this new mouse I can work all day long and go home to play videogames too. It's amazing, and I hope they never stop making them.
Cons: I wish it had a scroll wheel on it somewhere. The older model had some issued with the button breaking, I went through quite a few of them, but the company always sent me new mice. They are the best company.
Excerpt: This mouse lets you keep your hand in an anatomically neutral position while using the mouse. I bought this when I was diagnosed with tendonitis in my elbow. Using a regular mouse was painful after about an hour. As soon as I plugged this mouse in, the pain was gone and did not return. It takes about an hour to get used to the difference, but I love this mouse.
Pros: After having carpal tunnel surgery I started using this mouse and I would not go back to the old style. I work on the computer all day and my wrist does not hurt like it did with the other mouse. I highly reccomend this mouse if you are showing signs of carpal tunnel.
Cons: It takes some getting used to as you are moving your amr and not just flexing your wrist. After a little use it becomes natural to use.
Summary: I have been battling carpal tunnel for years now. Forget any of the bad reviews from previous customers. If I could give a 6 stars to this, I would! Yes it takes a little getting used to, but who freakin cares if it solves the physical pain. You get all the features from a regular mouse (left click, right click, scroll). Trust me, it's worth buying this because for the price your pain will go away. I am so happy I want to cry. PS.
