Very easy on the hand - no stress
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.
I LOVE this mouse! wrist and arm pain are gone - finger numbness - gone.
The tendonitis in my shoulder has improved since I have been using this mouse.
Not the best for me...was too small for my hand. I prefer the ortho mouse.
Why did I wait so long? I love it! It has been a 'miracle' help after carpel tunnel/wrist surgery. And I no longer have a caloused little finger. The touch is light and the cursor steady. Too bad for others that one cannot see/try it in any retail store. Well worth the investment.
I purchase this mouse for our Credit Department, our Human Resourse Department and for myself. I always get "big thank-you's" It always makes a difference in their comfort and,...productivity. The vertical mouse is and excellent product and well worth the cost.
I recently purchased this mouse in an effort to reduce pain from tendonitis in my right arm. I am a graphic designer at a busy book publisher and have uses a mouse 40 hours a week for the last 15 years. Because I use a Mac and the manufacturer offers a driver for Windows only, I had to download shareware from USB Overdrive to enable programming of the buttons. The mouse ships with only a card that gives tips on holding it properly, how to sit while using it, and Windows install directions. The button diagram on this web site and the button descriptions provided by USB Overdrive are completely different. It takes a bit of trial and error to figure out which button is where. For example, the shareware lists one button as "Left Button", but come to find out it is actually the topmost button on the right side of the mouse. Go figure. It was frustrating but I finally got the buttons programmed for my needs. Once this was accomplished I found the mouse easy to use. The mouse has more programmable buttons than I need, but I may find uses for them in the future. Too soon to tell if it will help my tendonitis.
I had the Airobic mouse, the big white one, for about 3-4 years and then it started having connection/mechanical problems. No complaints about lifespan of the Airobic mouse. No complaints about ergonomics. Never had any discomfort etc. Two months ago I replaced it with the Evoluent Vert mouse 4 (lawyer so lots of internet clicking and word processing, no gaming). Operation is satisfactory, the double click button is hit or miss, seems to depend on what program you are clicking within. Nice feature when it works. Handles great compared to the Airobic which is clumsy.
But the Airobic is clumsy with a purpose. By keeping your hand in that big cradle it keeps you from whipping your mouse around with your wrist. Two months in with the Evo and I can feel all kinds of symptoms of overuse or whatever coming back (I don't know anything about the medical jargon just that the discomfort from finger to elbow is slowly appearing once again). The Evo is no doubt much more ergonomic than a regular mouse and easier to use than the Airobic but my goal is to avoid injury and two months in it seems to be failing in that respect. Keep in mind that if you get the Airobic it will seem awkward to use but it has absolutely kept my finger2arm healthy for the last 3-4 yrs. Three stars compared to a reg mouse (one star for reg mouse), Airobic 5 stars for doing the real job of keeping one healthy.
