How To Buy An Ergonomic Mouse

When buying a mouse one of the core attributes it can have is whether or not it has built-in ergonomic features. Ergonomic features have different attributes, including the direction by which your hand holds the mouse, the angles of the mouse, and built-in buttons that reduce strain on your wrist and forearm when using it. This guide will walk you through different ergonomic features and functions so that you can make an informed buying decision. One thing of note: once you have decided which ergonomic features you care most about, also consider other fundamentals of the mouse and its use. Some mice are built for right handed people, others for those that use their left hand. Likewise, some mice are built for certain operating systems – like Windows of MacOS – and are not compatible across multiple systems. So please be mindful of these core features too as they will impact your experience using any of the above ergonomic mice.

Wrist and Finger Controls and Types of Mice

The first thing to consider when buying an ergonomic Mouse is what kind to purchase. There are ergonomic horizontal mice, vertical mice, and trackball mice. Each is similar but has core differences. Let us examine these differences. A horizontal mouse is a popular mouse because  you will likely be familiar with its design and how to use it. A horizontal Mouse fits comfortably in your hand and is placed flat on your desk or mouse pad for use. A vertical mouse, in contrast, has steeper sides. This enables you to reduce tension on your wrist, primarily using the mouse by moving your fingers. As such, you will notice fewer movements of the wrist, which can reduce lower arm pain over time and the probability of developing early-onset carpal tunnel syndrome. The third popular ergonomic mouse is called a trackball mouse. When using a trackball mouse, the base of the mouse remains static. The user can roll a ball to control the cursor, and this ball is embedded in the middle of the mouse.

Working or Gaming or Both

Some mice are optimized for work. Others are optimized for work and playing games. If you are a gamer, and want to use this one mouse for playing games, you would be wise to select a mouse that has embedded buttons which can enable you to easily control the game at your fingertips.  For example, the Logitech Ergo Mouse has a built-in adjustable hinge. This hinge enables you to tilt the mouse which can reduce pressure on your fingers and wrist while playing games. The hinge can also be set at 0 degrees if you are using the mouse for work computation and typing. Carpal tunnel syndrome can be very painful, and often starts with weakness, tingling, or numbness in your fingers or wrist. A vertical Mouse greatly reduces the amount of pressure on your hand, which can mitigate strain on your arm and forearm. An ergonomic mouse not only empowers you to do good work, but it can preserve your health over a long period of time.

Fit and Finish

There are simple tests you can conduct to ensure you are buying a mouse that best fits your hand. You should be able to hold the mouse in your flat hand without having to squeeze your fingers too tightly and you should be able to click the buttons (or scroll wheel) without reaching. An ergonomic design is critical if you want to maximize for comfort over the long haul; but so is the size of the mouse relative to your hand. Keep that in mind when evaluating your next mouse purchase. You should be able to click all built-in buttons on the mouse without scrunching up your hand too. Just like a mouse can be too big, it can also be too small. For most users a standard mouse will be somewhat symmetrical unless it’s a vertical mouse. The trackball mouse enables you to keep your arm stationary and leverage your fingers more.

Wired and Wireless

Some ergonomic mice connect via a cable to your computer, monitor, or external display. This has no bearing on its ergonomic abilities. However this comes down to a personalized choice: do you want your mouse to connect via Bluetooth or pairing, or do you want the mouse to connect to your computer through a cable. If the mouse is not connected, it may need to be charged. Some mice leverage batteries that are reusable (i.e. AA) while others require the entire mouse unit to be charged without taking the batteries out. These are additional things to consider when reflecting on the mouse you should buy, although this aspect of a mouse won’t impact how it feels in your hand.
