Evoluent Vertical Mouse VM3W - Wireless Right Hand Mouse

The Evoluent Vertical Mouse 3: VM3W-RSB is the wireless version of the extremely popular Evoluent Vertical Mouse, and it offers the same unique, patented shape that supports your hand in a relaxed handshake position and eliminates forearm twisting that most mice cause. You will quickly become accustomed to the improved comfort; the grip is the same as an ordinary mouse, just turned sideways.

  • Details

The Human Solution requested that the creator of the Evoluent Vertical Mouse 3 give us his perspective. We met up with him at the the 2008 National Ergonomics Conference and Exposition in Las Vegas and filmed this live. This video review will show you the Evoluent Vertical Mouse 3 in action, and its innovative design is explained by the man who designed the mouse. Enjoy.

The Evoluent VM3 Mouse is by and far our best selling mouse and represents an excellent value. For starters, it is the only approved ergonomic mouse of University of California at Berkeley. The Evoluent Vertical Mouse 2 was evaluated in 2007 by a team at the health services clinic in UC Berkeley, including medical doctors, physical therapists, ergonomists, and administrators. It was found to be comfortable and easily adapted to, and the Evoluent mouse promotes a neutral wrist and forearm posture. It is the only vertical type mouse approved for staff use within UC Berkeley and for sale in the campus store.

The Evoluent Vertical Mouse is designed to encourage an arm neutral position, much like a handshake. Many users find this completely eliminates their wrist pain.

By comparison, an ordinary mouse twists your forearm into an unnatural and uncomfortable position- especially if you spend long hours at a computer. A small lip on the VM3 keeps your little finger from dragging on the mousing surface.

The Evoluent Vertical Mouse features five easily programmable buttons which can function differently in different programs. For example, you can program the same button to mean "double click" in one program and "back" in another.

The vertical mouse is sized to fit most people comfortably; your thumb opposes your finger action so the mouse doesn't move sideways when you click the buttons.

    Video Review - Evoluent Wireless Mouse VM3W

    Check out our video review of the Evoluent Wireless Mouse VM3W below.

    Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

    Simply put- when users try this mouse, they love it. We have sold this mouse for years, and no other ergonomic mouse or input device has had nearly the positive consumer reaction this mouse has had. Over half of our staff uses this mouse for four main reasons: it is easy to use, feels good in your hand, works well, and helps reduce fatigue and pain in the wrist and hand. When a customer calls and asks for an ergonomic mouse they can try, I show them the Evoluent. We often recommend the Evoluent mouse in combination with the pronation-reducing Goldtouch or Kinesis keyboards as an excellent ergonomic keyboard and mouse combination.

    Wireless Evoluent Mouse
    May 31, 2012
    We purchased one to try it out and everyone in the office loved it so much we all got the wireless. We find it easy to use and love the programmable functions. Three of our staff had wrist and forearm pain and this has releaved the majority of it. The break reminder is wonderful as it reminds you how long you have been sitting at the computer and it's time to get up and move away from your workspace. I would purchase these again.

    great natural extension for people with wrist/forearm pain. tried several other turbo, ergonomic mouses and this is the best. it took a little adjustment to get used to moving it around but was working as normal in a couple of hours.

    Evoluent Vertical Mouse VM3W - Wireless Rt. Hand Mouse
    July 13, 2011
    I returned this item. It was not compatible with my Win7 Home OS. It messed up all sorts of things & since this happened several weeks ago I don't remember all the details. Every website we found that discussed the symptoms focused in on the communications. All referred to problems with Bluetooth communications issues. We tried some of the suggestions & even emailed your website for further guidance. The solution was to return the wireless version & buy the wired version. I did -- no problems with the wired version & it is VERY comfortable to use. I'm convinced that the wireless version does indeed use Bluetooth (your support guy thought it used RF technology) & that Win7 has randomly occurring problems with Bluetooth.

    The Evoluent Verical Wireless is better than the Handshoe that I returned. The Evoluent is somewhat large, and is not the end all for ergonomic computer mouse, but it certainly isn't the worst. I find that it does provide a good hand orientation, but I still experience some fatigue with long hours of use. The "resolution" for fine point selection in, say a CAD application is not all that good. Like most hand/tactile things, it must be used and personally decided on. I will continue to look for the perfect ergonomic mouse....

    Bad Idea

    I used the regular vertical Mouse and worked fine. The wireless sucks, I'm about to call to return it. Is harder to control you need to go back and forward where you want to click. The regular one had a control that this one lacks. DO NO GO WIRELESS IN THIS ONE, it make your pain worst
