Evoluent Vertical Mouse 4: Right Hand Wired Mouse VM4R

item#: PRS105

The new Evoluent Vertical Mouse VM4R offers a 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. There are also other Evoluent Vertical Mice models available:

The new Evoluent Vertical Mouse 4: Right Hand Wired Mouse VM4R offers new features that add to the legend of the popular Evoluent vertical mouse design. Evoluent Vertical Mice VM4R now include a more contoured shape to better fit users' hands, the option to change cursor speed without changing your grip on the mouse, and a sleep mode to conserve notebook battery power.

The Evoluent Vertical Mouse is by far our best selling mouse and represents excellent value. For starters, it is the only ergonomic mouse approved by 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 Vertical Mice promote 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.



Features - Evoluent Vertical Mouse 4: Right Hand Wired Mouse VM4R

  • Six programmable buttons give users more versatility for personalized mouse functions
  • Pointer speed buttons now located on the side allow convenient adjustment without ever changing your grip on the mouse - up to 4 speeds
  • Design is more comfortable & carefully sculpted for uncompromised comfort
  • Larger flange for your pinky to rest and relax on while mousing
  • Updated internal software technology comes standard in new version
  • Evoluent Mouse 4 is made from 30% recycled plastic
  • Illuminated features turn off to indicate when the mouse is in sleep mode

The Human Solution requested that the creator of the Evoluent Vertical Mouse 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 Vertical Mouse 4: Right Hand Wired Mouse VM4R features six 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.



The Evoluent Vertical Mouse 4: Right Hand Wired Mouse VM4R 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 VM4R keeps your little finger from dragging on the mousing surface.

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.

The best, no less

Love it. I had been using Evoluent's wireless vertical mouse and loved using it. I've had two of them and after the second made the switch to the wired version. The problem with the wireless version is that it is relatively easy to break if you drop it (and yes I can be clumsy sometimes). I'm not having any issues with the wired mouse (I haven't dropped it, but the construction seems more solid and the innards less sensitive to bumps and knocks). And I really don't mind it being wired.
