3M EM500GPS Ergonomic Mouse ( small/medium)

 

Aside from its unusual design, everything about the EM500 Ergonomic Mouse is simple. To use it, just plug it into your computer's USB port (or a PS/2 port using the included adapter)--no software is required, though we had to increase the mouse...

Unusual, joystick-like design reduces forearm twisting; available in two sizes; inexpensive; includes PS/2 adapter.

Buttons not programmable; no left-handed version available.

The 3M EM500 Ergonomic Mouse requires some adaptation, and it offers only the most basic mouse functionality. But the payoff is a more comfortable mousing experience.

Perfect for high use without pain

 

I have arthritis all over but in particular my hands, wrists and elbows and I am also a CAD user two things that aren't really compatible thanks to the huge amount of mouse clicking involved. However after over 10 years of using this and its trackball...

supports wrist and uses your strongest joint to click (thumb) ; doesn't have lots of bells and whistles but has everything necessary for a high end CAD user

takes some getting used to ; you must get the right size

Great relief to aches and pains, simple effective mousing

 

Reccomend anyone to try these if they suffer from sore wrists whilst mousing, I have been using one of these for over a year now and find it has helped me emmensely

Easy to get used to, Reliable, Inexpensive, better for the wrist than the old mice I used to use, two sizes for different sized hands

no wheel, limited functions, with what is effectively 3 buttons
