Mouse design influences the forearm position – a standard mouse requires the hand to be held in a pronated position.
The upright design of the Penguin® mouse encourages the natural ‘handshake’ position putting your hand in a natural and restful position like a handshake.
Designed for the protection from various upper limb conditions such as RSI or carpel tunnel syndrome, the ambidextrous design allows both hands to share the workload to reduce the overuse of one hand. This helps to reduce static muscle strain in the upper limb. The central ‘bow-tie’ switch allows for easy transition between right and left-handed use.
The symmetrical, easy-glide base allows users to rest either hand comfortably while mousing, and the vertical design encourages use of the forearm and upper arm muscles as opposed to the wrist joint when navigating.
The Penguin Mouse is also antimicrobial to inhibit the growth of bacteria – making it perfect for hot desking environments.
The Penguin mouse is available in three sizes of both wired and rechargeable wireless versions. To choose the correct one for you, measure your hand from the first crease on your wrist to the tip of your middle finger.
