Ergonomic mouse aims to relieve users from strain

Using computer mice more than 20 hours per week is associated with carpal tunnel syndrome. Classic computer mice force users into a pronated forearm position, placing stress on the nerves of the carpal tunnel. The PenClic R2 is an unconventional mouse that aims to relieve users from such strain by putting their hands into a more neutral position. The Penclic R2 looks like a regular mouse with a pen attached to it.

RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) is an injury that can be caused by repeatedly using your muscles and joints in the wrong way. For example, by not sitting right by your computer, or holding your hands and arms in an unnatural posture repeatedly for a long time.

RSI and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are two of the most common causes of work-related sick leave and costs companies billions in absenteeism and health care. In the US alone, RSI and CTS costs more than $ 20 billion in medical allowance each year.

The Penclic R2 wireless mouse connects seamlessly to your pc or your mac using a USB dongle.
