Prevent and reduce damage

"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.

"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 difficult to be efficient and perform at work if you often have sick leave due to recurring pain. Working with a vertical mouse helps you stay focused on what is important; your work and your physical well-being.

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 a big cost to visit a physiotherapist. For another it takes time, and often you have to go regularly for the treatment to work. The vertical mouse lets you spend your time and money on something else.

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 in a way that makes it much easier and faster for you to navigate and thus achieve better results.
