Evoluent Vertical Wireless Mouse
23 August 2012
Summary: Overall I like this product. Setup was easy and it works well. My only drawback is that is is pretty large for someone with smaller hands so that has taken some getting used to. Wish I could pick it up with one hand without clicking!
Summary: I am a computer programmer, and am on a computer at least 8 hrs a day, usually more. I also let my four co-workers try it out, and we agreed on the following. First, the mouse itself performed well, and did exactly what the product description said, hence the four-star rating. That being said, we disliked how it transferred control to the shoulder. With a normal mouse, forward/back movement is from the shoulder/elbow, and left/right movement is from the wrist.
Summary: I bought the mouse because my wrist was compromised by being at the computer all day. It works exactly as it was advertised. You just have to get used to it. It doesn't seem to move quite as easily across the surface as my other wireless mouse, but it is larger and a bit heavier, and frankly, it might be I just have to get more used to using it. It certainly relieves the stress on my wrist, however, so I am hopeful to fully transition sooner rather than later.
Summary: The Evoluent vertical mouse has worked well for what I needed. The mouse is quick and responsive, easy to install (plug and play). Having my wrist in the side position releaved the stress of my repaired carpal tunnel. I also had hand surgery on my thumb and this reduced the pressure on that joint also. Very effective. I did find it helped alot by having a soft "bean" style wrist support also - placing this under my wrist to help support.
Summary: Just bought this mouse after experiencing some wrist pain for the first time in my 8-year web design career. I had been using a flat Kensington (similar in shape to their SlimBlade), but was starting to feel a constant ache in the area below my palm and thumb. After using this mouse for a month now, the pain is completely gone. The only thing I don't like about this mouse is it's humongous size. It really bulks up my messenger-style work bag.
Summary: Using this mouse has completely relieved my wrist pain. My only complaint is that the tracking isn't as good as other laser mice I've used. It's not bad, it's just not quite as accurate as the Apple Mighty Mouse I'm used to. Hitting very small targets like I do in graphic design work can be a little difficult. For everyday computing, I think it's accurate enough. For Mac users, it just works when you plug it in as long as you don't want to program the extra buttons.
Excellent mouse for bed wrist, a few little problems

Summary: I have a bad right wrist so I went out looking for an ergonomic mouse. I didn't like the "joystick" types of mice so I took a chance on this mouse, but in the wired version. What I got was little short of a miracle. My wrist suddenly wasn't bothering me any more. After several years of service, the old mouse died. Being cheap, I tried using some other mice for a few weeks: my wrist problems returned! So I went out and bought another - this specific mouse, in wireless.
Summary: Purchased this for my wife who has wrist/elbow problems from working at a computer all day. It's a little hard to get used to it, but not too bad. I frequently get on her PC to conduct routine maintenance and after a few seconds I can use it just fine. She really likes it and I may get another for our other PC.
Summary: I picked this after experiencing a lot of discomfort not only in my hands/wrists but also in my shoulder as a result of the way I was mousing. I learned in physical therapy that I needed to move from my shoulder instead of my elbow or wrist; easier said than done. The weight, size, and design of this mouse encourage the use of the shoulder in mousing.
Summary: Received mouse from distributor which was defective. Fortunately the manufacturer was only a few miles away and allowed me to return to them for a new mouse. The new mouse works fine, has many programmable buttons and allows the hand to stay in a more natural position. It take a little getting used to and still learning to be precise with the tracking. The overall shape could be perfected for a better fit.
