Contour Design

Ergonomic Mouse

The reimagined computer mice from Contour Design are made to help us work better and feel good, too. The award-winning ergonomics makers are rethinking the way we use computers—whether you’re at a traditional desk or a standing one—to prevent common repetitive strain injuries like tendonitis and carpal tunnel. These ergonomic solutions can make you feel better if you already experience strain, too. Unimouse is has a vertical shape so the hand sits in a handshake position. The adjustable thumb rest and tilt (ranging from 35 to 70 degrees) lets you customize it to feel as natural as possible. Rollermouse, on the other hand (pun intended), is a total redesign. This mouse sits in front of the keyboard to encourage better posture and body alignment. We tried it and were impressed with its speed, and how it adjusted to our movements—which is the work of built-in tracking technology. By integrating either device into your work space, you can help make yourself feel better—which sounds pretty smart to us.

Quick Questions

Can I program the buttons on the mice?

All products are pre-programmed with smart button functions. This built-in software gives users the most ergonomically beneficial set of button functions so you can just plug-and-play. However, you may wish to use the driver to manually change button functions for even greater functionality and variation.

What ailments can this help with?

The Roller Bar Mouse is great as a solution for carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, shoulder pain, tendonitis, etc. The Vertical Mouse is more preventative and is meant to be a mouse that allows people to work comfortably and reduce the wear and tear on their hands, wrists, and arms to lessen the chance of developing one of these issues.

Can you provide some more information about the science and benefits behind the ergonomics of these mice?

The Roller Bar Mouse's main benefit comes from its positioning in front of the keyboard. This allows users to keep both of their elbows in at their sides, and arms straight ahead. This is in contrast to a traditional mouse where the user would need to cock their arm at an angle and reach away from their body to use the mouse. The posture Roller Bar Mouse provides is a much more neutral position that allows for the shoulder and arms to stay relaxed and not strained throughout the day. The Roller Bar is easily controlled with an open hand and encourages larger motions made by the user moving their arm in contrast to constant pivoting of the wrist. A traditional mouse requires flexing and squeezing of the hand muscles for grip and small, wrist-centric movements which are major factors in the development of carpal tunnel. The Roller Bar Mouse also allows use of both right and left hand dexterities, which off-loads some of the muscular activity to the users non-dominant hand, effectively sharing the workload.

The Vertical Mouse continues on the theme of relaxed posture by allowing the user to custom fit the mouse to their hand. The idea behind this is that it will allow users to have full control over the mouse, while their hand is in a relaxed posture effectively reducing the amount of work the hand will have to do to continually hold and grip the mouse during use. The adjustable angle also allows users to change the angle of the mouse on the fly. This will cause the user's hand and arm to rotate which allows different muscle groups to control the mouse, off-loading the work on to various muscles.

For the Roller Bar Mouse, what is the best computer to use it with?

If the laptop is being used with an external keyboard, we would suggest trying it. But in a laptop only workstation we would advise against it.

Can you provide more information on the Keyboard and why someone would want to pair it with the Roller Bar Mouse?

The keyboard, on it’s own, is not an ergonomic keyboard. It was designed to be the perfect partner to the Roller Bar Mouse. We lifted the front edge to be the perfect height, which allows us to give the user the best possible posture with the keyboard. We have also incorporated a negative slope from the front of the keyboard to the back which allows the users to be in a more neutral posture while using the keyboard. Lastly, it is a compact sized keyboard, but unlike most compact keyboards, it has a full number pad on the right hand side, which ensures that those who use the number pad frequently have proper hand support from the Roller Bar Mouse.
