Summary: This is my second Ortho mouse. One for work, one for home. I no longer have wrist pain from gripping a mouse like a claw. I have had my first one well over a year and game with it. It has 1000 dpi and with its size and formed grip you can easily do pinpoint movements. The perfect mouse for me.
Summary: i absolutely LOVE this mouse, i bought it about a year ago and my wrist issues went away within a few weeks. i also updated my keyboard to an ergonomic version since i felt that my issues were better addressed by a combination of ergonomic mouse and keyboard and i would never go back. i have a regular mouse at home and certainly feel how it affects my hand after working with it for a while, so i will eventually end up buying another ortho mouse.
Summary: I was getting carpal tunnel symptoms and decided not to wait until they got worse to try something. I chose this mouse. I'm a short woman with small hands, so I liked having the option of parts to choose between to fit the mouse to my hand. I went back and forth a couple of times before settling on the configuration I preferred. It wasn't long before my pain was a thing of the past. I no longer have to stop computing because my mouse arm/hand can't take it any longer.
Summary: I bought this via Amazon about a year ago, based on the reviews here. I've not been operated but I do have RSI symptoms on my wrist and elbow, and I am doing physical treatments to recover. I thought the Ortho Mouse would be an upgrade to my current devices which one is Microsoft's Optical Trackball, however, the clicks on the Ortho are very hard that they cause strain to my fingers and also arm.
Summary: As a person dealing with tendonitis I welcomed a change in the type of mouse I generally use. I loved the way this mouse felt and got used to the button structure very quickly. I also noticed the pain in my wrist was lessened right away. The only downfall, the right click button stopped working on day 3 of using this mouse. I use that button a lot in my work and in browsing the internet and it's very frustrating to have a useless button on a brand-new $100.00 mouse.
Summary: I bought this as a recommendation from a friend, even though I had no medical problem. What a good advice! After using various mice for >20 years, most of which were calling themselves "ergonomic", this is the first time my hand is relaxed on the mouse. It is like you are standing in the bus for a long ride, and then finally someone gets off and frees up a place and you can sit down. IMPORTANT: Be sure to read the instructions -- I know, who wants to read instructions?
Summary: After researching "Orthopedic Mouse" extensively, I decided that the "Goldtouch" had the most promise for my condition (wrist and arm pain associated with carpal tunnel syndrome,after relief surgery). The Goldtouch mouse was easy to get used to, and the custom snap-in base parts allowed me to get a perfect and extremely comfortable (natural) fit. If you are experiencing discomfort, using this mouse should provide relief. Highly recommended!
Summary: Too late to prevent the ruination of my forearm from ongoing use of a mouse; but at least it's keeping it from deteriorating further. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to any right-handed mouse user.
