New: The Great Big Guide to Ergonomic Mice

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.

    Jason: THANKS for your info! My standard mouse is killing me–What would you recommend? I do a lot of editing, writing, selecting and moving large blocks of text, scrolling. The worst is holding the click to select, copy, paste large blocks of text. I’ve ruined my right arm/ shoulder/ hand, so started mousing with my left, which bought me some time but now I’m in neck/ shoulder pain on the left. I’ve got the split keyboard (although I’ll get the new, smaller one), the ergo chair with arm support, but am perplexed by the magic mouse vs. track pad vs ergo mice– I haven’t used any of these, so don’t know which would help my shoulders/ neck/ hand. For someone who has only used a standard mouse, which is killing me, what would you recommend for my uses and issues? Thanks for your thoughts!

      Finding the best pointing device for yourself is usually a process of trial and error, but in your case I’d recommend the Contour RollerMouse Red as a great place to start. I use mine two-handed – one to click and one to manipulate the bar. I’ve been doing that for almost three years now, and I personally couldn’t be more pleased.
