3m mouse


3M Ergonomic 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.

The difference between the 3M mouse and traditional computer mouse?

The traditonal computer mouse (which includes typical ergonomic mouse) presses the wrist and carpal tunnel area of your hand against the desk.

This can pronate the forearm and wrist.

Pronate means 'put or hold your hand with the palm turned downwards. Imagine pressing your palms downwards for hours... that's not very natural is it? Putting your body through unnatural stances for long periods of time results in consequences.

3M Ergonomic Mouse is an Award Winner

It 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 without compromising all the benefits of your typical optical mouse.

How To Use the 3M Ergonomic Mouse

Grip the handle and rest your hand on the base. Use your thumb to left and right click.
