"Perfect for high use without pain"

13 October 2010
  • Pros: supports wrist and uses your strongest joint to click (thumb) doesn't have lots of bells and whistles but has everything necessary for a high end CAD user
  • Cons: takes some getting used to you must get the right size

geethachakra, CNET
8 March 2010
  • Pros: Avoids RSI problems, carpal tunnel and Cervical syndromes, by controlling hand and wrist motion. Easy to use. works fine for 2 years.
  • Cons: Thumb click awareness required, to keep it straight. Middle button is not that useful. Plastic bottom makes noise.

Tried a few, this is the best.

Mo.D, Amazon
14 March 2014
  • Summary: I've been using the 3M mouse at work for 3 years now and can say this is the best ergonomics mouse I've used for RSI. I've also used the handshake shaped mouses like the Evoluent but none relieve RSI like the 3M. The only slight let down is that I can't use it for gaming because it doesn't have a scroll wheel, it does have a button which acts as a scroll wheel for normal PC use but it wasn't compatible with this particular game for which I have a secondary mouse to use...

Thumbs UP

Ms. R. E. Winfield "samroz3", Amazon
11 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this plug and play joystick mouse some time ago as I had RSI particularly in my mouse finger, the mouse literally does plug and play and you click using your thumb with your arm resting around the mouse, it has helped prevent pain in my fingers through normal mouse clicks and scrolling, and everyone always comments on it. I take it to work contracts with me and it has always worked straight away on every computer, it is really good.

This mouse saved my life!

Chi Yen Lim, Amazon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: I suffer from severe tendonitis and cannot use a regular mouse as I will have pain and numbness in my arm and wrist. After extensive research, I landed on this mouse and have been using it for almost 15 years. If it wasn't for this mouse, my career as a graphic designer would have been over or I would have had to do what my doctor suggested… learn to use the mouse on my left hand. The measurements for this mouse is perfect and fits my hand perfectly.
