Ergonomics behind the Evoluent VerticalMouse

Evoluent VerticalMouse

The design of the Evoluent improves comfort and control when mousing. The patented shape supports your hand in a relaxed handshake position while allowing the thumb to rest in a naturally contoured notch. This positioning eliminates forearm twisting and minimizes the effort required to use the mouse.

The mouse remains stable when pressing buttons because the thumb naturally opposes the finger movements.

Evoluent Vertical Mouse 4

Ordinary Horizontal Mice

The classic horizontal design twists the arm. A regular mouse requires your forearm to twist away from its natural position, which can reduce blood flow, put muscles in awkward positions and increase the rate of fatigue and for many, discomfort and pain while mousing.

Learning Curve?

The grip is the same as an ordinary mouse, just turned sideways, and the buttons are operated by the same fingers. There is virtually no retraining necessary.

The mouse does not move sideways when clicking with normal force. Pointer control is as accurate as any other high-quality mouse.

Two Sizes

Just as not all hands are the same size, nor should mice be. The Evoluent VerticalMouse4 is available in two sizes for Right hand users - Sizing Information.

* Currently the Left hand VerticalMouse4 and VerticalMouse3 Wireless (right handed) models are available only in the Regular size

Evoluent Mouse Friendly Keyboard

The Evoluent Mouse Friendly Keyboard makes room for the mouse and reduces the risk of developing an RSI from repetitive over-reaching for the mouse.

The standard keyboard layout was designed prior to the existence of the graphic interface and the introduction of the mouse. At that time data entry was the key purpose for a keyboard so it was logical to place the numeric keypad on the right side. However, most current computer users spend little to no time on the numeric keypad but great amounts of time on the mouse. The result is that the numeric pad is now in the location that the mouse should be located.

The Evoluent Mouse Friendly Keyboard challenges this traditional design by moving the numeric keypad to the left, enabling users to bring the mouse from 5-7 inches closer than with a conventional keyboard.

An ordinary keyboard has a numeric keypad where the mouse should be.

Your arm is in a relaxed neutral position when using the mouse.

Learning Curve?

Since the majority of computer users only occasionally use their numeric keypad only minimal retraining is necessary.

The improved positioning of the mouse will make users more than happy to do their occasional numeric keying with their left hand. This also means users who need to enter numerics while moving between fields with the mouse may experience an increase in their speed over time.
