I would recommend this item to a friend.

An excellent product
November 27, 2014
My wrist and arm curls were esquetando during working days. In some pies I even to work to put ice in mouse arm. After a month using the OrthoMouse never had to do this, I am really satisfied.
The wireless version suffers a bit with the high throughput of the computer's hard drive.

OrthoMouse Egonomic Mouse
May 19, 2014
I am small (5ft) and my hand is small even for someone my size. The best of the adapters is slightly too big for my hand, although the mouse is useable. I was looking for a way to scroll up and down without having to use my middle finger that has frequent "trigger" problems. This mouse is great in that respect. Scrolling with the thumb is simple and a breeze. It takes a few days to adapt completely to the mouse. I recommend the product.

Unfortunately, I have small hands and no matter what configuration I use I can't get one that fits my hand comfortably.

Perfect Design
August 2, 2013
I have had this mouse for well over a year and it has helped tremendously. I have tried many others that were supposed to be ergonomic, but they did not help with the pain in my wrist. Between additional pieces that come with it which allow for precise size adjustment and the side thumb scroll capabilities, it is a great piece of hardware. I would definitely recommend it.

The OrthoMouse is Excellent. I've found using this product has significantly eased and helped eliminate my carpal tunnel symptons. I recommend it highly to anyone experiencing discomfort/pain in their daily computer use.

Ortho Mouse
May 1, 2012
The orthomouse was pretty easy to get used to. My hand is small so I was told to use the largest attachment. Sometimes I find my hand not exactly in the right spot on the mouse but my hand is not hurting any more. Unfortunately I use a computer at work and one at home and I only have the ortho mouse at work, so I am not getting the full benefit from using it. I would recommend it though.

OrthoMouse is awesome!

I am a professional technical writer, and I was having trouble with my shoulder, with pain starting there and referring down my arm. Now that I have the OrthoMouse, my hand and shoulder are pain free!

A bit overprice but an input device that I recommend and install for my customers where I work. One of about a dozen I keep on hand to complete ergonomic assessments.

When it works it's great
January 18, 2011
I've had this mouse for 5 months now and I really like it - when it works. Every so often the left single click button starts to double click, which is really annoying and messes up whatever I am working on in AutoCAD, other CAD programs and other programs. The last time it started working correctly on it's own, but this time it is still double clicking after a few days. The manufacturer told me I'm clicking incorrectly, but being a mechanical engineer I think I understand how to click the mouse... and I've had other people try it with the same results. Oh well, time to move on to another ergonomic mouse!

Well worth the money, this mouse took away the repetitive scrolling that has been the cause of serious tendon pain in my forearm. The crude scroll and fine scroll buttons work very well. I would love to see a wireless version in the future.

ortho mouse-takes some getting used to
July 15, 2010
Don't get me wrong, its really weird. it seems big. It has a lot of parts. And there are a few things that i would change. Mostly wish the thumb button were further back toward the palm. Even my boss who is a man thought it was sort of far away for his hands. But in general i am very happy. my wrist no longer hurts. I have been more careful to change positions more in my chair and with my keyboard tray. but the orthomouse also lets me move my hand around into slightly different places. it works in part by using the whole finger to click while the finger is at rest. you will have to try it to see. It does not work at all if you are standing or if your elbow is unsupported. since i use a keyboard tray, i support my forearm on the arm of my chair and pull the mouse tray forward to meet it. the instructions say that the entire arm should be supported. i work on autocad all day and i will admit it has taken me several weeks to get used to. it clearly slowed my work down for most of those two weeks, but it got rid of my pain and i am now starting to work at my old speed if i set everything up right. if i had something to do really fast and wanted to be more careless with my set up, i would have to switch back for that task.

I started with the Evoluent Mouse thinking it was a great idea with how the hand naturally lays vs. traditional mouse. However, when your hand is at rest, it doesn't lay vertically like the Evoluent Mouse requires. Thought I would take another look at another option for something more with a slant and really honor the natural lay of the hand-- BINGO, this works for me! It was strange to use for the first day, nonetheless I am still using it and would recommend it.

OrthoMouse ends wrist pain.
February 22, 2010
I looked at numerous "ergonomic" input devices. This one had features that seemed to make sense to me. I particularly liked that, finally, someone thought to move the optical sensor to a point near your fingertips. Why is the only mouse to do so? The thumb-operated scroll paddles and middle click are very easy to get used to. Click the up paddle once and scroll at normal speed, click up again equals double speed, click again, triple. One thing you quickly realize is that you have been using your fingers to move you old mouse. The OrthoMouse, like a lot of other ergo mice, is designed to stop this damaging motion. The whole hand rests on the mouse and the fingers are relaxed and used only for button clicking. This takes a bit of getting used to as the movement is more gross motor than fine motor. Speed and accuracy take time to develop. On the other hand, no pun intended, my wrist pain vanished almost immediately. I work a lot in AutoCad, as well as word processing and spreadsheets and I can say that the OrthoMouse has worked out very well indeed.

A Must Have Mouse
January 22, 2010
I bought this after carpal tunner symptoms but realized this mouse is designed more for humans than the bean mice I have used for years. I am going to get my kids started on this one. I recommend you don't wait. I work with Data Analysis, Excel, and consider myself a power user. Thanks

LIke the interchangeable parts, unfortunately the mouse did not fit my hand at all
October 17, 2009
This mouse did nothing to alleviate my hand pain and actually made it worse in my middle finger and associated tendons. While the thumb buttons which let you scroll are great, the shape did not work for me at all. Furthermore, none of the attachments made the mouse any more comfortable. Conversely, the Evoluent Vertical Mouse has greatly reduced my hand pain, and it's cheaper! One qualification is that I have larger hands and people with smaller hands may have better luck with this mouse.

new mouse design
August 31, 2009
This mouse is working well for me. Its adjustable size was a big differentiator from the other mice I have tried. I thought it took a bit more click force but then I moved my hand forward as explained in the manual. Now the click force is much easier. Make sure you slide your hand forward when gripping the mouse so your click finger is at the end of the button. That's my hot tip.
