image010

A blog commenter recently asked how to clean a RollerMouse Free, so I reached out to Contour Design for some guidance. A tech support guy from there sent me some clear and helpful instructions, which he also kindly permitted to be posted here for future reference. IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not open your RollerMouse Free if […]

Mogo Portable Standing Chair Review

Full disclosure: I'm not actually watching a reenactment here because I didn't get pictures at that time. Instead I'm... well, reenacting it.

In the past few years, there’s been a lot of ballyhoo about the benefits of working while standing – or even while walking on the treadmill, depending on your level of determination (and coordination). There is much to be said for this strategy. Studies show that sitting down all the time is pretty unhealthy in […]

ALTE mouse guide montage

No review today, but I thought I’d let everybody know about a brand-new resource on All Things Ergo. To match our popular Great Big Guide to Ergonomic Keyboards, we’ve published The Great Big Guide to Ergonomic Mice! Trackballs, rollers, and alternative devices are also covered. It’s pretty extensive, so grab two cups of coffee and check it out.

Gelepad, The Handiest Ergonomic Thingamabob You’ve Never Heard Of

GP3x6-4

This isn’t going to be much of a review, because the product under discussion is just too simple and neat to require much explanation. It’s called the Gelepad (say “jelly-pad”), and it’s a handily-sticky, lovably-squishy pad you can use to soften up the pressure points in your life. (And no, before you ask, it will […]

Matias Ergo Pro Keyboard Review

IMGP5842

It’s here. The long-anticipated Matias Ergo Pro, the fulfillment of every ergonomic dream and the highest ideal of all keyboards everywhere. Okay, maybe I exaggerate a bit. Let me just put it this way: as Alan Ladd said in a certain well-known Western, “It’s as good as any, and better than most.”

Mycestro Gesture Mouse Review

IMGP5802

Some time ago, I reviewed a meteoric gesture device called the Ion Wireless Air Mouse. I found it an interesting toy, but inaccurate and hard to use for real work. While the Ion appears to have gone away for good, there’s a new kid on the block of gesture-based pointing devices. It’s called the Mycestro. […]

Penclic Desktop Review – Mouse, Keyboard, And NiceTouch

IMGP5768

If you spend much time following ergonomics on Twitter (what, you don’t?) it’s hard to miss the presence of Penclic. This European manufacturer makes, and heavily promotes, a mouse that looks like a pen stuck to its inkwell. As you may recall, I’ve reviewed that mouse before. There’s a new version now, which purports to […]

Palm Rests, Arm Supports, And The RollerMouse Red

You can pad the hard aluminum of the RollerMouse with either of these palm rests at no additional cost.

Getting a new computer peripheral is kind of like getting married. Between here and happily-ever-after, you find yourself buying all kinds of accessories you never thought of before you made the commitment. Such is the case, to some degree, with the Contour RollerMouse Red. To be sure, it works fine with just the standard palm […]

Matias Mini Quiet Pro Mechanical Keyboard Review

The Matias Mini Quiet Pro

I’m a fan of mechanical keyboards – but a frustrated fan, because to date I have not found one in an ergonomic shape I can use. That’s why I’m excited about Matias, the Canadian keyboard maker that will soon be releasing its sure-to-be-amazing Ergo Pro. Alas, when I contacted the company, I was told that […]
