The Evoluent Story
In 1994, a revolutionary ergonomic mouse was invented and patented by Jack Lo due to discomfort he had when using a conventional mouse. His invention was the first mouse to support a hand in a fully upright handshake position for eliminating the arm twisting required by ordinary mice.
The Evoluent™ Vertical Mouse™ has a patented new design and shape that helps support your hand in a relaxed handshake position, and eliminates the arm twisting required by ordinary mice. In technical terms it eliminates the wrist posture of dorsiflexion with forearm pronation that occurs with a standard mouse.
The main action buttons and scroll wheel are on the right hand side and the thumb naturally opposes the finger movements, which makes the mouse steady when the buttons are pressed. It's really stable to use as the fingers and thumb balance each other on each side of the mouse.
The buttons and scroll wheel perform basic functions when the mouse is connected. Software is provided to enable the 5 buttons to be programmed, allowing the mouse to perform a variety of functions.
The grip of the Evoluent is basically the same as a standard mouse, except that it is turned on its side, which makes it really simple to use and does not involve any complex or time consuming training.
Designed with high technology optical tracking, the sensor accurately monitors the movement of the mouse.
