  • Details

The Handshoe Mouse was recommended as the #1 ergonomic mouse choice at the 2010 Ergo Expo by Alan Hedge, Director of Human Factors and Ergonomics Laboratory at Cornell University.

An important way to reduce repetitive stress from mousing is to reduce forearm pronation (inward twisting) caused by traditional mice. The HandShoe Mouse accomplishes this by placing your hand at a more neutral angle. This ergonomic mouse's recessed thumb rest places the thumb in a relaxed natural position and holds the rest of the hand in place without needing to grip the mouse. The HandShoe Mouse has a super-high resolution "blueray" sensor to make it accurate and easy to use without pushing it for long distances. With wired and wireless options, users can select the right mouse for them.

An ergonomic mouse should support your hand at an angle of 25 to 30 degrees, according to recent functional and anatomical research. The HandShoe Mouse was designed to provide the ideal angle for your hand, helping you to fully relax your hand as you use your mouse.

Most computer mice are “one size fits all,” but the The HandShoe Mouse is available in three different sizes – small, medium, and large. The different size options help users choose a mouse that will offer them the most relaxed mousing position and the right amount of finger support for comfort and long-term health.

Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

We've received feedback that the wireless Handshoe Mouse is slower to wake up than a standard mouse, and users have to reconfigure the mouse on their computer if the battery runs out. We recommend this mouse for users that are technically savvy or don't mind a little lag time on the mouse waking up.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Helps with de queverains (thumb)
July 9, 2015
Quite a relief to use this mouse. I have only used it two days, and still need too learn to relax my hand, but feel like this is the solution for me. Works well for Cad and graphics. Use it with a good mouse pad and it really glides with no effort. Using a keyboard with number pad on the left so there is room for the larger footprint of this mouse. I have been using a good quality vertical mouse, which is OK but tendons are aggravated by the end of the day..
Glides nicely. Little or no tension from gripping. Reasonable click force...fairly light. Buttons well placed . cordless with rechargeable battery.
Not the lightest click force. Wish it had a double click button, battery indicator, and maybe three programmable buttons.

Best mouse for DeQuervain's
January 11, 2012
I have tried numerous other mice and this one is by far the best for me. I have De Quervain's in both hands and this is the only mouse that is somewhat comfortable. I wish they had left handed mice too so I could switch off hands. That is my only complaint.

Handshoe mouse

Bought the mouse in 2010. Took me awhile to adjust and like other reviewers say, it's large for a mouse--more the size of a subway rat. The owners of the company that manufacturers it were really nice when I e-mailed them to ask about the ergonomics. They called me from Europe. That said, the mouse BROKE one year later. The left button stopped working. So my gripe is its shoddy workmanship. I never dropped it, spilled coffee on it or anything. Just quit working. They should offer a longer warranty.

I returned this mouse. I didn't find it comfortable. I think it would have worked better for me if the hand position had been closer to index vertical to pinky as opposed to index about 45 degrees to pinky. I found it difficult to move and I found it difficult to get still enough for a click on a small target. Sorry, guys, i had high hopes for this one.

As soon as I started using the HandShoe mouse the carpal tunnel pain in my wrist stopped and has not bothered me in the almost 2 months since! I liked it so well I bought one for my home computer as well as my computer at work.

The HandShoe mouse is my most recent purchase of an ergonomic mouse. I've used it for over a month now and really like it. I haven't experienced discomfort at the end of a day in fingers, hand or arm. I wish there were 3 buttons to program a double click, but overall this is very comfortable for my hand. The shape of the mouse reminds me of a manta ray!

I love the Handshoemouse. I purchased the Handshoemouse due to a wrist tendonitis. My wrist problems went away quickly. This mouse relieves shoulder stress you never knew you had, because you no longer have to hold your hand hovering over the mouse.

Trackball does a better job
April 14, 2010
I've just received my HandShoe Mouse yesterday and played with it for one whole night. This morning I experienced elbow pain on my right hand. But I still wanted to give it a try and set it up in my office. After working with it for few hours, I finally decided to return the mouse. With all the movements in the lower arm, it causes strain and pain in my elbow. To be ergonomic, I think the mouse has to be placed very near to the keyboard to avoid straining on the elbow. I still prefer my trackball mouse which requires only minimum movement in the fingers and thumb. The buttons are a bit slow and the touch-feel is not good too. It is difficult to get a precise cursor movement compared to a trackball.
