I work much of the day, either remotely, or in an office environment in front of a laptop using a multi-screened setup and often for hours on end without moving much. Multi-tasking, efficient communication and (accurate) speed of engagement is often paramount to success in his role and therefore anything that can help with these areas is invaluable.
Chris Willman, Head of Regional Marketing for RSA
Chris Willman for RSA, one of the largest and most respected brands in global security and identity and a key part of the Dell Technologies family. The key motivator behind the technology and products Chris uses as part of his work setup, is centred on things that can really optimise his efficiency – but remain comfortable doing so in the process – and it was for this very reason he decided to try the Contour RollerMouse. Chris also has issues with back pain and finds that things like bad posture or an uncomfortable workstation just make things worse, so he was keen to look at ways to help reduce that.
A new way to do more
“For years I’ve used numerous ergonomic style mouse and keyboard products and whilst they can be great, the constant moving and adjusting of my posture to operate a mouse probably doesn’t help my posture, and in turn, my back pain. I was trying to find something that would encourage me to sit better whilst working, but predominantly I was keen to explore newer technology to give my working efficiency a further boost. I’ve used keystrokes and shortcuts for years to navigate between programs and execute tasks, but love discovering new ways to do even more and new tech that helps me do it.”
Improving workflows and efficiency
After using the Contour RollerMouse for a couple of weeks Chris slowly began to adjust his habits away from previous patterns with a traditional mouse and he started to see substantial benefits in using the RollerMouse. Taking time to learn the shortcuts and some more of the more advanced functionalities and macros available with RollerMouse took some adjustment, but really proved worthwhile in helping to improve Chris’ workflows and efficiency.
A surprising combination of comfort and efficiency
“Admittedly it took me a little while to change my instinctive habits from using a more traditional mouse design, to break from the long-ingrained muscle memory, but once I got to grips with it the benefits have been fantastic. I’d hoped to improve my posture by using the RollerMouse and help reduce some of my back pain, but now I’m used to using it, it’s made me a lot faster at multi-tasking across-several programs and speeding up my workflow”. Overall, Chris has said that the RollerMouse has been surprising combination of comfort and efficiency and whilst slightly sceptical at first, has found great benefit in adopting the Contour RollerMouse into his work setup.
RollerMouse is an ergonomic alternative to the classic mouse – designed for your body rather than your computer. RollerMouse helps prevent the all-too-familiar pains in the neck, shoulders and wrists by allowing you to maintain your work posture within your shoulder width, and by providing support and variation. RollerMouse is available in a number of versions, which all share the same high emphasis on comfort and precision.
