Excessive pressure on the median and ulnar nerves, which control your hand and fingers, will first be

HandShoe Mouse provides full support of the hand and fingers to prevent these complaints.
The Dutch medical Erasmus university developed the HandShoe Mouse especially to prevent people getting Carpal
Tunnel Syndrome and Repetitive Strain Injury. More Research information can be found on the Research Page.
Recently a new standard was set with the Light Click buttons of the HandShoe Mouse which also helps people who are
already suffering from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or RSI.
