I've been doing professional computer work for a little over 20 years. I have recently been diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and additionally I have Kienbock's Disease in my right wrist. (This basically means one of the carpal bones in my right wrist is dying.) I am right handed.

I've been using this mouse for 3 weeks now, and I'll never go back to using a "traditional" mouse or track ball.

I didn't get a mouse pad included as others have mentioned, but I ordered on-line a swivel mouse pad/board that clamps to the edge of my desk. (No screws or drilling involved to install.) This mouse works great with it.

I loved that I could program the middle mouse button for double clicks. It slowed me down about 3 days or so to make the conscious effort to click the middle button once instead of double clicking, but now I don't even think about it. I love this because it saves me mouse clicks.

I have a small hand, so I don't have the problem of the edge of my hand resting on the mouse pad as one reviewer reported. I did look at several "alternative" mice before trying this one. I think one of the turning points for my decision was finding an article about the study done in Brussels in 2004 where 100 people tested several alternative mice and ranked them. This one came in first.

As someone who uses a PC several hours a day, and most of this use is mouse and keyboard intensive, I've had my fair share of problems with my wrists.

since even before hearing of this mouse I sometime held mine awkwardly for a minute every hour or so to have some relief. When I saw the evoluent vertical design I knew immediately this idea had potential.

I bought the evoluent2 and, after 10 days of using it, I'm thinking of abbandoning it.

on one hand it's true that the position is much more relaxing, but it comes with a whole lot of problems that sort of make you think why only this unknown cheap brand with only one product in their catalogue "ever thought of such a simple design shift"

-your hand will touch the pad most of the time with the outer side, lots of skin left on the surface and too much friction that will double the strain on some muscles of your arm on the long term.

You simply have to put your weight down somewhere, with a normal mouse it's all good, with this one... well you can't put it anywhere except laying your hand on the pad and dragging it around.

-for the above mentioned reason you tend to move the mouse a lot more, at least on the small movments, with the wrist only, the results are that the stress on your wrist only changes in quality not in intensity.

-the build is INCREDIBLY cheap, much worse then some $4 logitech clones I've seen

-the buttons have horrible feedback and you will often find yourself clicking them by mistake.

-while for my work (that requires 3 mouse buttons in most applications) I quite appreciate the 3 buttons, this shifted the wheel in an uncomfortable position, if you use it a lot you will find yourself playing the piano all the time.

This is a great mouse for those who spend many hours on a computer. I am a very active person but recently I have been spending at least 8-10 hours on a computer without only about an hour of exercise. Since then I have experienced much pain throughout my right hand(my mouse hand).

I learned about the vertical mouse and it was clear to me this was obviously a better design. I didn't order one right away but began using a normal mouse more vertically, just doing that made my wrist more comfortable. The repetitive twisting action is what was killing my wrist. Clearly, I decided a vertical mouse was needed.

The mouse doesn not have a cheap feel. (I'm responded to another review posted). It's made of plastic so it's just as light as a mouse needs to be. You don't want to moving a paperweight around, it will make your wrist worse. The vertical design itself is why this mouse sells. It takes A LOT of strain off your wrist.

When you use this mouse, you must remember all the same mouse techniques, i.e. don't use it as support. Meaning: keep your hand floating over the mouse, lightly wrap you hand around the mouse and don't try to grip it. Obviously, the side of you will tend to rest on the mouse pad (it's a vertical mouse), try too keep it floating and use your arm.

The mouse has 5 buttons. It took me a while to decide what extra buttons to use but it's very helpful. The resolution is very nice and you don't have to do much moving of the mouse, there is absolutly no learning curve. For gaming on the other hand there is a learning curve. For you hard core gamers you may want a keep your other mouse connected until you master the vertical mouse for gaming. Other than that... I'm going to dread using a computer without a vertical mouse.

I love it, I was having some serious carple tunnel related issues for a long time but since I picked up this mouse I have STOPPED wearing a wrist brace at all.

one draw back (make that 2)

its to small for my large hands (I am 6'3") not much but enough to be a bit akward at first.

the second, it doesnt track all that great if you are a gamer and need that precision. its not bad but definitly not perfect.

I would probably go with the newest versrion of the mouse (and plan to soon) it addresses both of those issues and if it does so well will get a solid 5 stars from me
