Ergonomic Office Tips & Information | Blog
A few months ago I started working for a great company that has a pretty big focus on office ergonomics. This makes perfect sense considering that’s kind of the thing we’re in the business of providing. And one of the many perks of working for such a business is getting to play with all of the new hip gadgets before they hit our shelves. One such gizmo is currently living on my keyboard tray. Say hello to the new Goldtouch Wireless Ambidextrous Mouse, also known much more technically as the model KOV-GTM-100W.
The first thing you’ll notice about this mouse is just how shiny it is when it pops out of the box. After you are no longer distracted by said shininess, you will also notice that this mouse has no defined design for one hand or the other. It’s almost a perfect oval, similar to a traditional mouse. This allows the user to use either hand for mousing. So when one hand gets tired, you can feel free to switch over to the other. It actually didn’t take that long to get used to mousing with my left as well as my right, and it’s nice to give a busy mouse hand a break every once in awhile.
Another thing you’ll notice is that your new wireless mouse is indeed sans wire. Just like the box says. So, you may be wondering how the mouse interacts with your computer. The answer is a mixture of technological voodoo and the receiver found conveniently enough in a little port on the underside of the mouse. The best part is that once you plug the little guy in, there is hardly any installation. You’ll be good to go in about a minute or two so you just need the bare minimum of patience.
Overall, I enjoy this one. It’s different from many of our other brands such as the Evoluent, which eases strain by angling the mousing hand and arm. The Goldtouch Wireless Ambidextrous Mouse doesn’t just reposition your arm. By switching off mousing hands, you’re giving your hand a breather while you work with his lazier, but now less so, sibling. If you've been considering giving ambidextrous mousing a try, this is the mouse to get.

An important element of ergonomics is proper use and positioning of your computer. That's why we spend so much time extolling the virtues of monitor arms, keyboard trays, and CPU holders.
