Ergonomic HandShoe Mouse Publish Proof of Unique Difference with Competition

HandShoe Mouse is giving complete access to ergonomic fundamental and field research. Updated website shows, based on research, reasons for RSI and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and how to prevent it.

Breda The Netherlands (PRWEB) June 13, 2010 -- Hippus, the Dutch owner and producer of the patented, ergonomic HandShoe Mouse, have decided to give complete access to its ergonomic fundamental and field research. The completely renewed HandShoe Mouse website shows why the HandShoe Mouse is different from all other ergonomic mice: its shape is based on several years of research and field testing in large organizations, performed by the Erasmus University Medical Centre in the Netherlands. The research conclusions of Erasmus University (which are now published on the HandShoe Mouse website) have been checked and confirmed by means of Electromyogram (EMG) measurements performed by Maastricht University in the Netherlands.

“We hear and read many stories about ergonomic mice, which are just based on guessing rather than proper research” says Drs. Sjoerd Eisma, CEO of Hippus. “So we decided the time has come to show the world that the right choice for the best ergonomic mouse could determine if you can continue working or have to stay at home suffering from pains in your hand, arm, neck or shoulders”.

One of the important conclusions of the research is that the extensive use of a traditional computer mouse is a major cause for Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) and/or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The relatively small shape of this standard computer mouse causes unconscious gripping and pinching.

A second cause is the continuous need to lift your fingers above a traditional mouse (“hovering”) to prevent inadvertent clicking of the mouse buttons. This may lead to over exertion of certain muscles (the extensor muscles) in your arms and hands which may cause excessive tension in your deep neck muscles. When these muscles are tense they can virtually close the costoclavicular gate, the gate between the first rib and the clavicular bone. Blood vessels and nerves that pass through this gate may be pinched and the blood circulation may thus be hampered (possibly also resulting in carpal tunnel syndrome).

This research has lead to the design of the HandShoe Mouse that doesn’t allow gripping and pinching at all and your fingers are not hovering above the mouse buttons but are resting on the mouse body in a relaxed fashion.

The use of other so called “ergonomic mice” has been tested and measured as well.
The conclusion is that any horizontal or vertical mouse and any mouse that still instigates gripping, pinching or hovering is not as ergonomic as its producers claim. Research and test results are shown on the HandShoe Mouse website (

“Other suppliers of ergonomic mice do not show a lot of university based research or measurements, to prove their shape”, says Drs. Ing. Paul Helder, Chief Technology Officer of Hippus. “Thanks to almost two years of field research in large organizations, we know the general causes of RSI and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. We’ve helped people with severe complaints to pick up their work again!”

Needless to say that the unique, patented shape of the HandShoe Mouse is a result of the above mentioned research which included actual measurements on site as well as in the laboratory. Other universities (in Taiwan and Belgium) have also confirmed that your hand is in the optimal, most relaxed position when it is fully supported by the HandShoe Mouse.
