Product Description

Use your thumb to left and right click on the top. Third button on side lets you scroll. Corded optical mouse offers USB/PS2 plug-and-play compatibility, 6-1/2' cord for flexible use, and right-handed use.

If you live on a computer it happens but there are fixes

The first time I got it, I thought I was going crazy. My fingers started to cramp up and it hurt to click the mouse. Being left handed I switched right and within a month I couldn't touch the dang mouse without pain.

For a lifetime computer user, it was almost worse that the post polio syndrome.

Stopping, resting, operations - none of those things work. The problem is the rapid repetition with the hand turned 90 degrees. My fingers are tingling as I type since I wrote all day.

The solution is an ergonomic keyboard and the 3M mouse. The Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 is as good as any. There are some $200 to $600 keyboards that people swear by. I like this one and I'm too cheap to put out more than $100.

The real key to carpal tunnel is the 3M mouse. When your hand grips a regular mouse and you click, the nerve passing through the carpal tunnel is pinched because the wrist is twisted 90 degrees. Withe the 3M mouse, the wrist is straight with the arm and elbow.

The palm rests on the base the the rest is pure pleasure. In more than four years of use, my carpal tunnel has never come back. I keep a Microsoft mouse on the left but it still hurts to use it. The 3M mouse comes in two sizes, medium and large. Don't buy the wireless one - it is hateful. The cord also keeps the mouse on the desk. I broke a cordless one when it fell to the floor.

I bought mine for $79 from a specialty shop I found with Google. Amazon.ca is selling them now. I wish Staples did as well but they don't. At least Amazon.ca has free freight.

There is a good overview of carpal tunnel on ComputerWorld that takes the standard route to a cure. The carpal tunnel survival guide [...]

As the title says. If you're running Linux it's possible to configure the input device such that you can press and hold the "middle" button (i.e. squeeze the handgrip) to scroll and release to end scrolling. Sadly on Windows you can't, but you still get the basic toggled scrolling mode.

I would not recommend anyone buying this if you have any wrist issues. I would have returned it, unfortunately I lost the packaging it came in. I am back to using a regular mouse because this one was worst

Positives:
- Plug and play? Yes indeed. No problems here running with Windows 7 64-bit.
- Ergonomic? Yes. Rotating my forearm to the neutral position made a big difference in my mouse discomfort.

Negatives:
- No mouse wheel. Come on, this isn't a new invention! I mean really? Really!? 3M should at least mention this in the product description. The big mouse button on the side of the hand grip (which is best manipulated with your ring finger) is just a large middle mouse button. Many applications are not written to make use of the middle mouse button for scrolling so you are left using the keyboard arrow keys and grabbing onto the scroll bars like a Neanderthal.
- Mouse travels with your whole forearm rather than with your wrist. I suppose it isn't fair for me to make this a negative since this shift in locomotion is part of the ergonomic design, but it is a big adjustment to make. At work I use two screens with a combined width of 3200 pixels. That is a lot of real estate to cover with your forearm while still being able to achieve fine mouse control on certain tasks. I have tried adjusting my mouse speed, but can't find a happy medium. Perhaps they could address this with built-in mouse speed buttons... right after they add the mouse wheel!

Conclusion: If you have some serious carpal tunnel pain issues - this is a good choice since many of the sideways jacked up mice are really only half measures. Otherwise you will be frustrated and end up like me with a traditional mouse still hooked up for certain tasks.

Helped a lot of the pain I was having in my hands and around my forearm and elbow.
