The Posturite Penguin Ambidextrous Vertical Mouse is an ambidextrous
vertical mouse and allows the user to rest either hand comfortably
alongside the vertical structure. This encourages the use of the
forearm and upper arm to move the mouse, although fine cursor control
can be achieved with small hand and/or finger movements. The central
'bow-tie' switch allows for easy transition between right and left
handed use. Unlike other vertical mice, the weight of the hand resting
on the base provides control of the mouse, reducing the need to "grip"
the mouse and allowing the fingers to remain relaxed while still being
in optimum position for clicking. Features include adjustable DPI (400,
600, 800, or 1200) and a precision scroll wheel.
The Penguin marks a major breakthrough in the battle to beat health problems created when computer users spend too much time handling a conventional mouse. It sets new standards of protection against a range of upper limb conditions such as repetitive strain injury (RSI) and carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) by enabling right and left hands to share the workload and avoiding exaggerated movements of the wrist joint that can increase pressure on the soft tissues in the carpal tunnel. Regular switching of hands throughout the day helps prevent static muscle strain (SMS) in the arm and shoulder - a major source of discomfort in mouse work.
