If you can afford a $100+ ergonomic mouse, please visit our mouse guide for the best options you can buy. We've found this model to be the best $20 ergonomic mouse you can buy, requires virtually no training time, and will be healthier for your hands than a normal mouse.
A vertical mouse is an ideal ergonomic mouse for beginning ergonomic users to lifetime experts. A vertically-oriented mouse only takes a few minutes to get used to, and then just a day or two to become 100% comfortable.
Try and relax your hands on your lap. Your thumbs will point upwards in your most relaxed, natural position. This is the orientation of this mouse, and why using a vertical mouse is less stressful. A vertical mouse can help prevent pronation by reducing pressure in the carpal tunnel.
We love this right-handed model mouse. It's usually priced under $30 with shipping and works across Macs, Windows, Chromebooks, and Linux laptops and desktops. It's also wireless so you don't have to mess with cables. Just plug in the included USB nano receiver and this mouse works with no additional configuration or software on your computer.
The only configuration on the mouse is to set your preferred cursor speed. If you have a large screen or use multiple monitors, having a fast moving mouse requires less hand movement. This mouse supports 800 / 1200 / 1600 DPI. You just press a button on the mouse to toggle between these speeds.
To keep costs down, we ship this mouse ships directly from our Chinese manufacturer. Please allow 12-20 days for free shipping. You will receive an email with tracking information. This mouse is well worth the wait! We used a U.S. warehouse before but that added $10 and only cut shipping by 5 days.
