Fantastic way to keep your hand operating safely

 

I noticed some strain between my index finger and my middle finger, it was the way I held my fingers when scrolling with any other mouse, even the ball mouse. I kept my fingers above the buttons on the typical mouse and caused a lot of strain. So I...

Fantastic product for those with arthritis!

 

I have severe osteo arthritis in my hands, particularly in my right hand, that makes a conventional mouse a literal pain. This 3M Ergonomic mouse is a dream come true. It took a little getting used to but I made the transition easily enough (for a 58...
