I like this but...


I would be more than happy to recommend this mouse if they were to remove the big giant huge button all together that always gets in the way that you really don't need for anything anyway. Until then this mouse is a no go. Look for something else.

I like the perdendicular handle so that I don't hit the bottom of my wrist on the desk and irritate the carpel tunnel. This is a real big giant plus. I wish that more mouses were like this

There is a big giant huge button going down the handle on the side of the mouse for scrolling. This button makes it very hard to grip this mouse. I frequently accidently push this button and then it messes up the screen. I can not grip the mouse right...

Ergo Mouse


After having carpal tunnel surgery I started using this mouse and I would not go back to the old style. I work on the computer all day and my wrist does not hurt like it did with the other mouse. I highly reccomend this mouse if you are showing signs...

It takes some getting used to as you are moving your amr and not just flexing your wrist. After a little use it becomes natural to use

I have a hard time using a conventional mouse, due to some physical limitations. This a great product for me to use. My arm, hand and shoulder no longer bother me using this mouse.

Great hand and arm position

Best Ergonomic Mouse


This is the best of all the wireless ergonomic mice out there. I know because I've had the wired one for years and it's great. This version is even better, addresses the only problem with the old one-the inconvenience of the cord.

This product feels great and has really reduce my RSI (Repetitive strain injury) symptoms after only three weeks of use. Overall I like the shape much more than other ergo mice but it is a different tactile feel and requires an adjustment period. Now...

Consumer review by: Matt (



First time using an ergonomic mouse. For myself, this mouse had a learning curve of about 2 weeks. Easy to use after that point, comes naturally. Had alot of wrist and finger RSI, and it cleared up in a month. I use this mouse for gaming, but it is a...

Product Specifications

This mouse is clinically proven to alleviate pain and discomfort of repetitive stress injuries in the hand, wrist or arm associated with the use of traditional mice - which requires forearm pronation and may cause pressure on the wrist and carpal tunnel area. The 3M Ergonomic Mouse has earned an ease-of-use commendation from the arthritis foundation for its patented, vertical grip design that keeps your hand and wrist at a neutral angle, while the mouse works as a regular optical mouse. Grip the handle and rest your hand on the base.
