Avoids forearm twisting for comfort and good health The patented shape supports your hand in an upright neutral posture that generally avoids forearm twisting. Many users, including medical doctors, ergonomists and physical therapists, said the Evoluent VerticalMouse provides superior comfort and even relieved their wrist pain.
Comfortable and easy to useThe shape is thoughtfully sculpted for uncompromised comfort and easy-to-reach programmable buttons. No finger contortions are needed to operate the buttons.
Improved thumb restThe thumb rest has been reshaped to provide even more comfort over earlier versions.
Now two thumb buttonsA new bottom thumb button provides greatly extended functionality when used with the included driver.
Extended lip prevents rubbingAn extra wide lip along the bottom edge prevents the last finger from rubbing the desk.
Adjustable laser sensorPointer speed controls on the side allow convenient adjustment without even releasing your grip from the mouse.
Pointer speed indicatorsTop mounted LEDs show through the chrome thumb rest to indicate selected pointer speed including extra low (XL), low (LO), MD (medium), to high (HI).
Mini ReceiverThe tiny 2.4 GHz receiver avoids being knocked off the side of a notebook computer.
