The VerticalMouse 4 (Wired Right-Hand) from Evoluent offers a new twist on the classic computer mouse: one that keeps your hand vertically in a "handshake" position while you're pointing, clicking and scrolling. That means your arm sits neutrally without twisting, which is designed to afford extra ergonomic comfort during extended sessions.

The shape of the mouse is sculpted for superior ergonomics, and the programmable buttons are easy to reach. Pointer speed controls on the side allow convenient adjustment of the laser sensor without releasing your hold on the mouse. There's also a thumb rest, which has been reshaped from earlier versions to offer added comfort. Top-mounted LEDs show through the chrome thumb rest to indicate one of the four selectable pointer speeds (extra low, low, medium and high).

Another feature that sets this mouse apart from the crowd is its lighted Evoluent logo, which turns off when the mouse is in sleep mode to conserve notebook battery power. An extra-wide lip along the bottom edge prevents your last finger from rubbing the desk. Provided along with the mouse, you'll receive a driver; Evoluent Mouse Manager for Windows lets you program six buttons and extend functionality of the bottom thumb button. This mouse has been tested to work with Windows, Mac and Linux based computers. Simply connect it using an available USB port.

      Comments about Evoluent VerticalMouse 4 (Wired Right-Hand):

      I use the Evoluent for my main computer. It is a large mouse and it does take some getting use to. It has three main buttons under the fingers, two buttons next to the thumb and the wheel button. All are programable with the downloadable software from the Evoluent site. The buttons are a little light but once you get used to them it works very well. I liked it so much I purchased one for my wife. Both are on computers that run Win 7 pro, no problems yet. I have been using the mice for 3 weeks.

        This will be my best buy in electronics accessories for years! Comfort is is much larger than I thought. Now, one that I want a fully ergonomic keyboard, because the difference is very positive.

        Comments about Evoluent VerticalMouse 4 (Wired Right-Hand):

        Totally different than a "traditional" mouse but by Day 3 using it I am really loving it. I have days where I spend 12 hours at a computer and was having repetitive stress pains in my index finger from clicking the mouse button. After only two days using this my finger already feels better. Well worth the price, the device is extremely well engineered and works so smooth. I can't believe how many years I used the $[$]mouse that comes with a computer.

              Using this mouse is confusing at first, but once you get used to it you can never go back to using other mice.

              Comments about Evoluent VerticalMouse 4 (Wired Right-Hand):

              I have a wowpen that I didn't like when I first got it, because it was heavier than my other mouse, and I don't like it that it doesn't have a lip at the bottom outside for my pinky. Plus, it's super hard to click.

              But I got it out again recently when my light, regular, 3-button mouse gave out on me, and, after using it for a few days, noticed that some shoulder pain that I've had for years was going away. And away it went. It's not there.

              So I figured I'd spring for an Evoluent, since maybe the buttons would be easier, and it has the spot for my pinky there.

              Well, the buttons were definitely easier to click, very nice. And the pinky lip was good, too. But it caused me to lean my hand a bit more to the right (or, I guess I should say upright) than the wowpen, and the pain slowly started to return.

              So I will be returning it. Still searching for my holy grail of mice. I am on the computer many hours a day every day and I have rheumatoid arthritis.

              I do think that this mouse is better than a regular flat mouse, and I know several people who've used it and swear by it, and have relieved pain with it. It just didn't work out for me.

                  Mouse is one of the modern instruments most of us use most during the day, and incredibly enough not much thought in terms of ergonomic design is given by manufacturers. This mouse is excellent. I used to have minor pains after prolonged usage, until I found this mouse.. Hope more manufactures start giving more serious thoughts to mouses. I know the price is high, but how much is a healthy right hand / arm worth?
