3M has announced the launch of a new mouse which is designed to reduce muscle strain and make the mouse more comfortable to use, the 3M Ergonomic Mouse.
As you can see from the photos, the 3M Ergonomic Mouse looks more like a joystick than a computer mouse, and it works like a joystick, but moves like a conventi0nal mouse.
Working with computers, particularly for long periods without breaks, is a prime cause of Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI). A poorly set up workstation or the use of inferior equipment can result in strain on muscles throughout the body. Aches, numbness and tingling in muscles, while working at a computer, could be a sign of RSI. If allowed to become chronic, RSI can cause permanent disability. However, RSI is 100 per cent preventable.
The 3M Ergonomic Mouse comes with all the features of a standard mouse including left and right click and a scroll button, it is compatible with both PCs and Macs.
The 3M Ergonomic Mouse is available for £142.92 about $232 from 3M.
