This Evoluent Vertical Mouse article will present the history, features, benefits and unique handshake design of the "Evoluent Vertical Mouse".

The Evoluent Vertical Mouse was patented in 1994. The Evoluent Vertical Mouse has a unique design that keeps the forearm and wrist in a neutral, hand-shake position, also called power grip position, rather than in a palm-down position that is required with an ordinary computer mouse. This handshake position has been coined the "vertical position". Since that time, the Evoluent Vertical Mouse has gone through more product research, design and development and has been revised to be released as the Evoluent Vertical Mouse 2 in 2002 and just recently the Evoluent Vertical Mouse 3 and Evoluent Vertical Mouse 3 Wireless!. The goal of the designer and unique computer mouse is to help more people "cure and prevent computer mouse injuries".

Evoluent Vertical Mouse Design:
The Evoluent Vertical Mouse 2 and Evoluent Vertical Mouse 3 versions are about the same height and width of a traditional computer mouse. The Evoluent Vertical Mouse even looks very much like a computer mouse that has been positioned on its side. The most obvious difference from a traditional computer mouse and the Evoluent Vertical Mouse is in the height and placement of the buttons. The buttons of the Evoluent Vertical Mouse are placed on the outside edge of the mouse with an indentation for the thumb on the inside edge.

The Evoluent Vertical Mouse contains 5 buttons compared to the traditional computer mouse that has 2 or 3. There are three standard-sized buttons along the outside edge, along with a scroll wheel along the outside edge between the top and middle button.

Additionally on the Evoluent Vertical Mouse there is a long, thin oval-shaped button in the thumb indentation along the inside edge of the mouse. The top button performs the traditional left click functions. The middle button performs the traditional right click functions. The scroll wheel performs the traditional scroll functions. The remaining bottom button and thumb indentation button are for programmable functions.

All five buttons are programmable with 59 different functions available through free shareware. Ergonomically, all 5 of these buttons are easy to activate and require only a light pressure to activate. However this required pressure is sufficiently firm in order to prevent accidental mouse clicks, thus controlling computer mouse errors.

Why the unique ergonomic design of the Evoluent Vertical Mouse coined the "Vertical Mouse" position??

This unique vertical mouse design of the Evoluent Vertical Mouse is important because your hand and wrist is strongest in its neutral, vertical or handshake position, this is why the unique design of the vertical mouse is so effective.

The Evoluent Vertical Mouse ergonomic computer mouse design is the only computer mouse that supports your hand in a fully upright "handshake" or vertical position that eliminates the forearm twisting required by ordinary mice. Ergonomically, this is the power position for the wrist and hand. This power position is when the grip is strongest and the stress on the joints and tendons is least.

Repetitive mouse activities out of the power position may result in cumulative trauma or pain. This power position is also the optimal position for mouse utilization and can maximize muscle strength and reduced muscle fatigue and injury. Properly fitting the computer mouse to your hand is one of the easiest, most economical and effective solutions for improving workstation ergonomics.

Evoluent Vertical Mouse is the world's first handshake grip computer mouse series since 2002. The Evoluent Vertical Mouse 2 and Evoluent Vertical Mouse 3 versions are unique and innovative because they support your hand in a fully upright handshake position that eliminates the forearm twisting required by ordinary mice. Once you experience the superior comfort, you will never go back to ordinary mice. (Patented.)

Additionally, the Evoluent Vertical Mouseis an ideal Computer Mouse for Carpal Tunnel because it:

ELIMINATES ARM TWISTING: The patented shape supports your hand in a fully upright handshake position that eliminates forearm twisting. Many users said the Evoluent Vertical Mouse (all 3 versions) cured their wrist or arm pain. An ordinary horizontal computer mouse requires your forearm to twist away from its natural position.

REDUCES HAND MOVEMENTS: The Evoluent Vertical Mouse2 and strong>Evoluent Vertical Mouse 3 versions do not move sideways when clicking with normal force because the thumb naturally opposes the fingers. Pointer control is as accurate as any other good computer mouse.

OFFERS EFFORTLESS / EASY CLICKING: The button force is light for easy clicking, but still firm enough to avoid accidental actuation.
