Recently bought a contour rollermouse to ease shoulder pain. It works reasonably well in mitigating those killer diagonal shoulder stretches (as you'd expect for nearly £200!) but most disappointing in that it doesn't provide adequate wrist support. There are cushions to left and right of the roller bar but nothing to support the wrist when actually using the roller bar and mouse keys - which is most of the time !! Therefore looks like I will now have to buy extra wrist supports - which makes this an even more expensive solution.
"Asymmetrical reaching with one side of your body and not the other causes your muscle groups to compensate for the weight of your extended arm while reaching for a traditional mouse. Repetitive reaching oftentimes leads to tightness and pain in the neck, shoulder and elbow areas. The RollerMouse PRO2 allows you to keep your elbows comfortably by your side, which is a more beneficial ergonomic position.
The RollerMouse PRO2 is controlled with the use of an unflexed hand, so there is no need to clutch or hold the device in order to navigate the cursor. Your fingertips roll a narrow bar both up and down and from side to side simultaneously to navigate the cursor over the entire screen, with very little friction or resistance. The elimination of flexing your fingers avoids activity through the carpal tunnel. Overuse of a traditional mouse can aggravate the carpal tunnel and lead to numbness, tingling and pain.
With the mouse buttons centered beneath the keyboard home keys, mouse control is equidistant from either hand. Ambidextrous use is encouraged and easily accomplished.
With ultra-slim keyboards becoming increasing popular, Contour Design has designed two keyboard lifters that allow you to change the height and angle of your keyboard. You have three heights to choose from and you can angle you keyboard flat or sloping down and away from you (negative slope).
This HID compliant device has the drivers ""on board"" and simply needs to be plugged into any empty USB port, without the need for a cumbersome connection routine.
There are two easy options to perform a ""left click"". Either push down on the navigation bar itself, or click on the large left button in the button control area. Other button functions include a traditional ""right click"" button, a single touch ""double click"" button, a scroll wheel, a scroll lock, ""one touch"" copy and ""one touch"" paste. For a visual demonstration, please activate the ""watch video"" button on this web page."
