Humanscale Switch Mouse

item#: HUS011

The Humanscale Switch Mouse (also referred to as the Human Scale Switch Mouse) offers several major innovations unique to its design. This ergonomic mouse places your wrist and forearm into a more comfortable mousing position, and it offers unique scrolling and clicking features as well. Additionally, the Humanscale Switch Mouse easily adjusts to the size of your palm. This feature was carried over from the previous model, the Humanscale Whale Mouse.

Humanscale Switch Mouse

The Humanscale Switch Mouse is a truly innovative mouse. First of all, the Humanscale Switch Mouse offers a V-shaped base which places your wrist and forearm into a natural pronation; this is important for the prevention and the relief of pain. Secondly, this mouse is equally useful for left or right hand use, so users can alternate hands for maximum relief of repetitive stress. The third major innovation is that the Humanscale Switch Mouse slides open and closed. This allows you to adjust the mouse's shape to fit the size of your palm. Other key attributes include a built-in palm support to prevent contact stress of your wrist, 4-way scrolling dish to minimize repetitive motion and programmable buttons for user-specified functions.

Humanscale Switch Mouse Features:

  • V-shaped base positions your wrist and arm at a natural and comfortable angle
  • Scrolling dish provides vertical and horizontal navigation
  • Adjustable length ensures proper fit for most users
  • Integrated palm support eliminates contact stress and reduces the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Symmetrical shape accommodates left or right hand use
  • Design encourages use of large arm and shoulder muscles allowing delicate hand and wrist muscles to relax
  • Programmable buttons offer user-specified functions

Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

The Humanscale Switch Mouse can be used by either left or right hand users, and users can also alternate hands. I recommend trying the "switch" for maximum relief from problems created by repetitive stress.

Human Switch Mouse
July 25, 2013
I'm very happy with this product. I have problems on my wrist and with this product it helps me alleviate the discomfort & pain on my wrist specially working long hours using the mouse. This is my 3rd year using this product.

Disappointed with this Switch Mouse
November 25, 2012
I used a Switch Mouse quite happily for about 3 years. Unfortunately, the cord broke wires at the point where it enters the mouse. I replaced the mouse with a new Switch Mouse about 3 or 4 months ago. It has NEVER worked as well as the last one. I've tried adjusting the settings, re-installing the drivers, using different mouse pads or none at all, etc. Nothing gives me reliable performance. Sometimes the mouse clicks twice when I want it to only click once. It repeated maximizes or minimizes a window when I wanted to click it once and move it. I can't help but think that Human Scale changed their manufacturer and/or supplier(s) or parts. I am on the verge of sending it back. I posted a comment under Contact Us and received an email asking for a rating. Here it is: I couldn't be more disappointed.

Switch inferior to Whale
September 4, 2010
I have both the Whale mouse and the Switch Mouse. I find the Whale mouse much more comfortable than the Switch. The Switch is not wide enough for my hand. Also I have yet to find the angle of the Switch comfortable. I was hoping ti buy a second Whale but they are no longer available. I am willing to trade my Switch for a Whale.

what you want out of a mouse?
December 2, 2009
The navigation buttons do not work; I sent an e-mail to tech support requesting assistance and never heard back. ----------- However, the mouse did significantly abate the pain in my wrist. The pain didn't disappear, so I switched the mouse and am using it left handed; no trouble at all using it as a pseudo-lefty. ----------- I find the right-click mechanism to be a little harder to push than with a traditional mouse, but I have become accustomed to its operation. I like the scroll (third) button.

Works for me
March 6, 2009
My PT recommended the Whale Mouse, but it was discontinued. I found out this had come out with a very similar design and got it right away. Needed to try using both hands because my right one is in bad shape and decided to make the right and left learn how to use it at the same time by swapping back and forth. I really had a difficult time at first because it's hard to rest your palm on the mouse correctly and I kept hitting the wrong buttons accidentally. Took about a week for me to get "rolling" but it was worth the wait. My hands feel better than they have in a while. FYI: It's a big mouse, so be sure to have extra space to use it.
