Ergonomic Mouse - the HandShoe
We are determined to offer you the best ergonomic mouse in the world.
Did you know that one in six workers are
suffering from some form of RSI or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, mostly related to intensive use of a traditional
The HandShoe Mouse has been developed by a Dutch medical university and has been tested in large
organisations for almost two years. During these tests we saw many people who were suffering from RSI or
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, coming back to work
The reason is that the unique and
patented shape of the HandShoe Mouse fully supports your
hand in the best relaxed position and prevents gripping and pinching,
what you do when you use a standard mouse.
Watch this one minute
However excellent the functionality of the standard computer mouse - we all
use it with great ease - most of the time it is too small for the hand while its shape forces
your hand and fingers in an unnatural gripping position.
It lacks comfort and the gripping and pinching, as well as the
hovering of your fingers above the mouse buttons are the major sources of complaints
which may lead to Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
The Research team has also tested a vertical mouse and found that gripping and pinching of
a vertical mouse is still a potential source of RSI or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Another medical university
found that with a vertical mouse the "interosseous membrane" is extremely taut ("stressed") which
also may lead to complaints.
The HandShoe Mouse was developed with all complaints in mind. Support of your hand and fingers
prevents gripping and pinching and your arm is supported at the ideal angle of 25-30 degrees which makes sure your
forearm is completely relaxed. So, you will understand that the HandShoe Mouse is the latest technology in the
Evolution of the computer mouse as shown here:
This is why the HandShoe Mouse is
Based on proper
medical university research and extensive field
Your hand, thumb
and fingers are supported in the best, relaxed position
There is no
friction between the skin of your hand and the desk top
Instead of over-using your hand and wrist,
your arm will most of the time let the optical HandShoe Mouse float without any effort. The shape
allows for the hand to continuously rest on the mouse body in a relaxed
fashion,so there is no skin contact
between your hand and the desk.
As a result there is no skin irritation as caused by excessive rubbing when moving a
conventional mouse. Contrary to conventional computer mice you don't have to continuously lift (hover) the
fingers, to prevent accidental switching.
The buttons of this ergonomic mouse are positioned in line with the fingers. Only minor pressure
is required to click the buttons. The thumb rest of the HandShoe Mouse allows for a relaxed position and
prevents excessive thumb action which can be harmful.
In Dutch the word HandShoe means "Glove".
The HandShoe Mouse "fits like a glove" or, like some people say "feels like a saddle for the hand". The
HandShoe Mouse is available in three standard sizes (Small, Medium and Large) which are available in a
wireless and a wired version.So
size matters and there is a HandShoe Mouse for
everyone! You can order your own, ergonomic mouse,
the HandShoe Mouse here.
The HandShoe Mouse is developed, based on proper university research and measurements and not on
beliefs of individuals.
Have bought one for work and one for home. Takes some getting used to but
they "fit like a glove" or shoe. Great product. I can feel the difference in my thumb, which is
arthritic and a trigger, wrist, not concerned about carpel tunnel anymore and arm, up to my shoulder,
are all relaxing and the pain is almost gone. Quite remarkable.
And I am telling everyone about how great the "HandShoe Mouse" is!!

Already after one day’s work with this mouse I experienced a less numb feeling in my arm.
Before I got the Handshoe Mouse I used to experience a strong prickling sensation.

I just wanted to let you and the Hippus team know how much I loooooove
using my new mouse. It is a real delight -my hand feels great on it and I don´t get as tired.
Many of my colleagues at the office are also impressed -first by the very cool look, but when they
place their hand on it the response is always the same "WOW!"
Thanks for all of your work to develop this product and putting it in the market!
