Spire Reveals a New Ergonomic Mouse

Definitely not for left-handers. Even for right-handers, moving the mouse would be annoying. My last two fingers would be in an awkward position and moving the arm at that angle is actually more work. I guess if someone wants to work and give their arm a workout at the same time, it may work out. But for me, no thanks. There are better ways. Also, not very grippable. Looks big too.

Natural? From what I can see you just rotate your wrist to the right, which would be more unnatural for someone like me (I have a ganglionic cyst in my right wrist)
If we can get a picture of a hand on this it might make more sense...

knowom, I agree. A trackball is not only more ergonomic but it is so much faster for general GUI operations, graphics(reason why CAD and graphic designers use them) gaming and etc.Once you go track, you don't do back.

Happy tracking balling, the Prisoner...

When you use a "standard" mouse your wrist is rotated to the left. If you stand up and let your hand drop to your side you will notice your palm faces inward toward your body, not behind you. An ergonomic or vertical mouse keeps your palm facing inward and the radius and ulna bones in your forearm remain aligned rather than twisted. This can help prevent or relieve carpal tunnel syndrome.

I have the beginning stages of carpal tunnel and now use an Adesso ergonomic mouse. In the 2 months I have had it the pain in my wrist has gone down significantly. The main issue I have with this style of mouse is that if you aren't careful when you click on the buttons the mouse has a tendency to jump slightly to the left because that is the direction of force.

I agree with the natural twisting to the body, but when you look at the mouse wouldnt that require you to bend your wrist to use?
