It is ancient news that a classic mouse causes damage that can be long lasting and difficult to fix. A vertical mouse is designed ergonomically and ensures that you work under the best possible conditions.

An ergonomic computer mouse aims to increase comfort and natural working positions. This means you will most likely find that a vertical mouse looks different from the ones you are used to seeing.
And it is the different designs that can help you avoid injury and pain in the long run.

Prevent and reduce damage
Most people who spend their day in front of the computer know about malaise and a general soreness in the body. A vertical computer mouse protects the body and helps you avoid these issues.
You get rid of nuisances very quickly if you switch to a vertical mouse, as it allows your body to be more ergonomically positioned.
In addition, it reduces the risk of strain injuries, which - if not prevented - can lead to sick leave and chronic injuries such as tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) or general muscle pain.
"A vertical mouse can be beneficial to use as a preventative, as this mouse allows you to have a more natural position in the wrist. This has been shown to prevent the most common office ailments such as pain and discomfort in the forearm and hand/fingers," says Jarle Marheim, HSE consultant in Norway, says in connection with pain prevention. He adds:
"At the same time, a vertical mouse such as Unimouse works in such a way that you vary the use of the mouse more than you would with a traditional computer mouse. And variation is the most important thing any office worker should focus on in terms of reducing pain and injuries."
Avoid extra sick leave at work
It can be challenging to perform efficientlyat work if you have frequent sick leave due to recurring pains. Working with a vertical mouse helps you stay focused on the essentials; your physical well-being and your work.
Avoid the cost of massage and physiotherapy
Once the damage is done, it must be treated. This can be both costly and time-consuming.
For one, it is costly to visit a physiotherapist. For another, it takes time away form work, as you often have to go during office hours. The vertical mouse lets you spend your time and money on what matters during your working day.
More precision in your work
In addition to reducing discomfort and pain, the vertical mouse also affects the precision of your work. The mouse is designed to make it much easier and faster for you to navigate and thus achieve better results.
Adjustable and ergonomic benefits
The Unimouse has outstanding adjustable functions, which means that you get less pressure on the wrist when you use it, and your thumb gets a natural resting point.
By and large, a computer mouse is a small thing, but choosing the right computer mouse can have very significant benefits for you and your well-being.
