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.

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 [...]

Lacks precision. Lacks scroll wheel/button. Mouse button design doesn't allow for using scopes in games as you cannot press both left and right mouse buttons at the same time.

One has to examine why exactly they need this. If you have wrist pain alone, this helps, but for me it caused arm/shoulder pain in the few hours I used it.
