Holiday 2010 Giveaway: ErgoMotion Pivoting Laser Mouse (ARV $50) [CLOSED]

With as many hours as I spend at my computer daily, of course I worry about developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. I also have my laptop on a regular writing desk and the height is slightly higher than I would like. Although I eventually adjusted to it, the way my wrist rests on the edge of the desk to use my previous mouse made my hand sit at an unnatural angle. The ErgoMotion Mouse by Smartfish Technologies has made a huge difference in my comfort level.

The ergonomically designed mouse sits on a pivot that allows me to tip the mouse front to back, side to side, and any combination of the above to fit my needs. When I move my mouse, my needs change. This mouse allows my movement to be fluid and comfortable throughout usage rather than forcing my hand to stay at the same angle whether my mouse is an inch away from the side of my keyboard or 4 inches away. For example, the further the mouse gets from my keyboard, my hand wants to tip inward towards my body.

Other things you should know about the ErgoMotion Mouse . . .
  • This mouse seems to be quite a bit more sensitive than the one I used previously, so you may or may not need to adjust the mouse speed in your Control Panel.
  • I love that this mouse is wireless. It is perfect to use with a laptop. There is even a place to store the USB on the bottom of the mouse itself for when you are travelling.
  • This mouse feels slightly heavier in weight than my previous mouse, but I adjusted to it after only one day of use.
  • This mouse includes 2 AA batteries. I had to replace my batteries after 2 days, but have not had any problems since doing so. The life of fresh batteries is suppose to be about 10 months. So you may want to just put fresh batteries in when you first open the package, just to avoid any inconvenience later on.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the ErgoMotion Keyboard and the ErgoMotion Mouse goes to supporting the Hospital For Special Surgery Rehabilitation Education Fund. To learn more, visit . This mouse is currently available on with Free Super Saver Shipping!
