Umm, what’s a HandShoe you might ask? Well it’s a mouse, an ergonomic mouse to be exact. The name though I have to question, say it real fast and it sounds like you’re sneezing! Despite that though, I mean ‘HandShoe’, where did they come up with that name? I don’t get it. The tagline on their site is ‘The only mouse that fits like a glove’ but yet it’s called the HandShoe?! Shoe, Glove? Which one is it? I’m confused now. Anyway, it’s even available in different sizes and it can be purchased for your left or right foot, err I mean hand… Yes they have different versions for left and right handed people. Supposedly it was designed based on research and testing at medical universities to help alleviate RSI or carpal tunnel.
Hippus, the owner and producer of the patented, truly ergonomic mouse, the HandShoe Mouse, is pleased to introduce the new version for the left hand. This new ergonomic mouse model will be mass produced in sizes Small, Medium, Large and comes with a lighter "click force" to operate the mouse buttons.
This will give the user a very comfortable ergonomic experience. Later this year the lighter "click force" will also be made available for the right hand version.
Until recently the left hander was only available as a handmade mouse at considerable higher costs but with the larger production volume the left hand version is now available at a price comparable to the right hand version of the HandShoe Mouse.
The unique patented shape of the HandShoe Mouse is based on many years of research and testing by several medical universities.
The most important features of the HandShoe Mouse are:
- full support of you hand and fingers at the proven ideal angle of 25-30 degrees
- no possibility for "gripping and pinching", a major cause for RSI and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- no friction between the skin of your hand and the desk top
