What’s the point of an Ergonomic Mouse?

Peta Tebby -

Comfort and health is what should come to mind when you think of office work. Working in the office can involve repetitive movements and at times, unnatural positions. This is particularly applicable when it comes to handling a traditional mouse.

The shape of a conventional mouse is not designed or focused on the user or task at hand. Its shape is standard and for universal use. If you use a traditional mouse frequently, and feel a strain whilst doing so, this can be due to the sideways bending of the wrist or working with your palm facing the floor. This unnatural position and repetitive use of the same muscles could lead to RSI.

If using a mouse is a necessity for your line of work, you will not be able to limit your use. However, if you feel a strain or pain, this is a situation you should address, and the sooner the better.

Matching the work to the worker

Ergonomic mouse serve to synchronise your work station to your requirements. Designed with focus on the type of work and the human physiology, each ergonomic mouse differs, with innovative features complimenting the natural position of your hand, your needs and also operating preference. 

When it comes to choosing alternatives to the traditional shaped mouse, we recommend product evaluation trials. At Computing Plus, and we are happy to work with you to make sure that you invest in office accessories that are best suited to you. Offering a vast selection of Ergonomic Mouse, read through the product details here, or ring us if you have any further questions regarding the features or for product testing. We stock a range of market leading vertical ergonomic mice, including new Evoluent 4 VerticalMouse which is available in right handed, wireless option, left handed, and regular or small sizes.

Remember, investing in an Ergonomic Mouse is the solution, but there are a couple things that you can do as well. To keep a natural position, make sure that the mouse is situated to one side of your desk. Similarly, make sure it’s not too far away which will prevent you leaning to one side.

Douglas Handford -

At Computing Plus we have long since established ourselves as a top supplier of ergonomic furniture. Over the many years that we have been supplying ergonomic office solutions, the industry has changed and evolved. New research and industry innovations mean that ergonomic solutions are now better than ever before.

We have compiled a list of the top four advantages to having ergonomic innovations in your office. 

Increase Comfort and productivity

Being more comfortable in the work place is an advantage that cannot be overstated. Ergonomic furniture is designed to work with the human body to provide a comfortable and productive office environment.

Studies have shown that companies who have invested in ergonomic work stations experience a significant rise in productivity and engagement from their staff. This is because worker comfort directly affects operational efficiency and well-being, it improves job satisfaction, influences retention, and create a happier, more motivational work environment.

Adjustable features.

Many of our ergonomic office products have adjustable features. Each and every person is unique and has different needs. This means that a one size fits all workstation is a false economy and could actually be harmful to your colleagues. Investing in adjustable office furniture and can adapt to the individual is a sure way of ensuring your staff are healthy, happy, and continually motivated.

A healthier office environment

Building a healthier office environment is a huge advantage that is offered by ergonomic office furniture. Office work, particularly of a repetitive nature, can cause health issues. Even something as simple as sitting at your desk can be harmful to the average office worker. Poor set up can cause issues such as back discomfort, circulation restrictions, and carpel tunnel syndrome. Computing Plus stock a range of products that can help avoid these issues.
