Product Description

The EvoluentTM VerticalMouseTM 3 Rev 2 supports your hand in a relaxed handshake position and eliminates arm twisting. Once you experience the superior comfort, you will never go back to ordinary mice. The patented shape supports your hand in a relaxed handshake position that eliminates forearm twisting. You will quickly become accustomed to the improved comfort. An ordinary horizontal mouse requires your forearm to twist away from its natural position. The grip is the same as an ordinary mouse, just turned sideways, and the buttons are operated by the same fingers. There is virtually no retraining necessary.

I have large hands so it fits perfect.
Tom
I would give this one star for comfort, but maybe it was just me not getting used to it.
Steve
My wrist and forearm pains were greatly reduced when using this mouse!

In terms of my experience with this product, I have assisted several thousand workers with mouse-related injuries over the past 13 years, working for 10 years as a rehabilitation ergonomist under contract to the UK's Department for Work and Pensions. I have recommended the Evoluent literally thousands of times and have found it to be highly effective in the rehabilitation of upper-limb disorders, when used correctly.

In terms of training/qualification, I have an MSc (with distinction) in Health Ergonomics, from the European Institute for Health and Medical Sciences (EIHMS), Surrey University, UK. EIHMS is a World Health Organization designated 'Centre of Excellence' in the field of work-related musculoskeletal disorders. My thesis was on 'The Influence of Workstation Layout on Working Postures.' I have taught many professional courses on computer ergonomics. I am currently (2008) engaged in my PhD at Purdue University, USA. I have been a full member of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society since 2004.

Let me say at the outset that I take mouse injuries very seriously; they are far more prevalent than keyboard injuries, and may be far more disabling. I am 'independent,' by which I mean I do not sell any products, neither am I paid to endorse any products. As a professional ergonomist, I strongly believe paid endorsements are unethical. I am paid by my clients to give impartial, effective advice, that's all.

However, I felt moved to lend my backing to the Evoluent Vertical Mouse, now shipping in its third incarnation.

Ever since Evoluent launched the first version of VM, I have had tremendous success with injured workers switching form standard mice and trackballs to this device.

The concept is phenomenal. I felt the difference immediately once I started using it - my arm is sooo much more natural resting that direction.

The cons: it is definitely not made for small hands. I would venture a guess that it is sized for the average 6' white male - which means the hands are huge compared to a more petite woman like myself. It's not terrible to use, it's just not completely natural. Slimmer, with the thumb rest a little lower, and the buttons a little narrower would make it much more comfortable for me.

Also for whatever reason it's much more challenging to hit precision targets - I think that's a problem with their optical technology. I have to go really slowly and deliberately, and sometimes have to to make several passes, in order to hit things like check boxes and pull-down arrows.

Overall an awesome idea...maybe one or two more iterations it'll be perfect. Definitely don't hesitate to buy one - but beware that there are caveats.

This is quite a "duh" -- gripping the mouse vertically prevents the need to twist your lower arm (which puts strain on the hand's nerves and tendons). I have fairly nasty RSI problems, and find this mouse to be downright "comfortable" -- a stark contrast to normal mice, which make my index and middle finger ache and burn.

The design is aesthetically pleasant, and the motions similar enough to traditional mousing to transition seamlessly. The mouse is substantial in your hand ("satisfying" would be a good description), and has a small lip to prevent the pinky from dragging. It is precise and accurate, and even lets you change the laser DPI on the fly (that being the feature new to the "rev 2"). I especially love the thumb button -- I mapped it to be a second Primary ("left") click, which takes load off my index finger.

Two niggles --
1) the "action" on the wheel-press button is a little stiff. I programmed the ring-finger button to duplicate its functionality and use that instead.
2) Mac users will need to download a 3rd-party driver if they want to use the thumb and ring/pinky buttons (it is called "USB Overdrive" and works perfectly). If money is tight it can be used for free as nagware, but otherwise -- it's cheap.

If you are in pain, you should also look into the Zero Tension mouse, the Quill mouse, the Microsoft Natural 6000/7000, the Logitech marble mouse (trackball), and the Wacom tablets. The Evoluent came out solidly as my favorite, but I recommend all of them highly. Pair them with a Kinesis Advantage keyboard and you'll be a very happy camper.

Verified Purchase
In an effort to avoid carpal tunnel in this computer-oriented world I have tried trackpads, balls and optical mice. By far, the Vertical Mouse is my favorite.
I used the Version 1 VM for years, when it got fried with a jolt of static. I delayed ordering a new one; trying my various options from my graveyard of mice - then finally went back to this one.
Somewhat expensive, I realize especially because your computer probably came with a free (aka cheap) one - I like this mouse better than a wireless one I've tried.
If you're into graphics AT ALL and aren't using a tablet; this is the mouse for you!

I was beginning to notice symptoms of numbness and tingling in my right hand as a result of mousing all day long. After using this product for just a few days, that completely resolved, which alone is worth the price. In addition, this mouse lets you customize each of the 5 different buttons to perform a different function in each application on your computer! Any function you can perform on the keyboard can be programmed into the buttons; it even allows you to record keystrokes to create your own specific function. I highly recommend this product!
