    Expensive but works wonderfully...

    Here's the deal. I've been working with computers for the past 20 years, and due to repetitive motion and bad ergonomics...I have bouts of metacarpal tunnel syndrome. Lately it started acting up again, so I took some reward certs and got a wireless Evoluent mouse. I had one years ago, while in California, but it was wired and it would get sweaty. this one is new & improved, glad to say. works like a charm, doesn't strain my hand or wrist. It's easily programmable, don't get sweaty, AND...on the bottom the base curves out just enough for your little finger to rest on. Despite the size and shape, I find that it isn't problematic moving the Evoluent mouse. (I still use a mouse pad but that's another story.) My one gripe is the price. When I went to make a purchase it was $106. Lucky me, I had $50 in Rewards certificates so it wasn't so bad. i understand the economics of it---a useful product for a smaller segment of the market--but eliminating the wired version and just selling the wireless would allow them to sell at a lower price. Just saying!

    Works great - Prevents wrist problems

    I had a wired vertical mouse from evoluent for years until it finally died, so replaced it with the wireless laser vertical mouse. While it wasn't much of.a hassle to get the mouse wire hung up once in a while, it is much more convenient not to have a wired mouse. I use this on my work computer, so couldn't reconfigure which buttons I wanted to be the "right" button, so I had to accept the third button (at the bottom) as the "right button. Took a little while to get used to, since the old evoluent vertical mouse that I replaced, had the "right" button in the middle. All in all, an excellent mouse. Very smooth tracking. Once I started using the vertical mouse years ago, the wrist problems that t had disappeared.

    Good for wrist issues

    I purchased this fairly expensive mouse to help with one of my co-workers with her carpal tunnel issues. Setting up the mouse was fairly simple. I just plugged in the USB dongle and her windows machine auto installed the drivers. There is also software made by the manufacturer that you can easily download from their website, which gives you the ability to program the mouse buttons for different clicks and tasks. The physical design was nice and was much more comfortable than using a horizontal mouse. Mouse performance was unaffected by the design and pointing is precise. It definitely has a different feel than a traditional mouse, but my co-worker says her wrist issues are benefiting from the ergonomic design.

    I am a video editor and I have to be in the computer for long hours, I had been using a regular mouse for a long time when suddenly I started feeling pain in my hand one day, I didn't know what to do and I couldn't stop working because the deadline of my projects where approaching, so I looked up for ergonomic mouses and according to the reviews I thought this was the most appropiate for me, I use a Retina Mac book pro and it was easy to install, I just Plug it in and it ran smoothly. It is a little bulky but as long as it keeps my hand safe from pain, I am ok with it. Great buy so far!

    Comfortable when you have wrist problems

    Way too costly for general use, if you have a wrist issue and your doctor or physical therapist recommend it, this vertical mouse is nice. It definitely takes some getting used to, and is still (after a month of solid use) is hard to 'drive' for detailed work (like drawings), but great for general mouse use. It would be nice if a major mouse vendor (hint Logitech!) would offer one in their line. Yet another wireless adapter taking up a USB port and more drivers on the computer make for more troubleshooting RF and software collisions.

    I really like this mouse. However, the durability of the product is lacking. I've just had a 4th Evoluent product fail due to the left mouse button no longer functioning. Two for work, two at home, all the same issue. I've read reviews on other retailer sites with similar issues. It is a real shame because I love this mouse. Having to shell out the premium price for a product that isn't durable is a downer.

    After experiencing issues with my fingers and wrist on a normal mouse, I purchased this mouse to alleviate the pressures/pain I was feeling in my wrist. This mouse helped a lot with the issues. There are plenty of buttons to adjust the functions to various different places if you need to. I purchased a second one for at work to ensure I was using the same ergonomic mouse. It took about a week to dial in the functions of the mouse and I appreciate the difference it has made.

    Great ergonomic mouse for users with smaller hands

    I am the ergonomic specialist at our company and I recommend this mouse to most people with wrist issues. It is a great design that is better for wrist and hand than a standard mouse. Your forearm is much more relaxed while using this mouse and takes away the abduction and adduction movement for many mouse users with a standard mouse. This mouse is the "SMALL" version for smaller hands. Best Buy should put the word small in the main product name.

    High Learning Curve, Drivers a Must

    Must be able to install drivers to program the second button to Right-Click instead of the third button on right side. I work for DoD so I cannot have drivers installed or wireless/blue tooth mice which makes this mouse too expensive. I don’t want to train my motor skills at home where I can install the drivers I really needed something for work. I have carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands. Hard to find plug and play ergonomic mice that are not wireless!

    Was having severe pain in my arm. I'm a CPA; work up to 16 hrs a day. Couldn't believe the diff in just a day. Immediately recog the difference between having my arm in an outward extended position with hand down vs a handshake position. Got the mouse only a few days before appt with ortho to find out why I had lost range of motion in my arm. Cortisone relieved the inflam, a few exercises a day, within 3 wks, I had almost full range back. I think the new mouse kept my from aggravating the problem, allowing my muscles to heal!

    Eliminated Wrist Pain

    It is an easy setup with just plugging it in and going. You can download driver software from the Evoluent website and then it allows you to reprogram the buttons. Their right click is awkward for me, so I reprogrammed it for the middle button to function as a right click. I have had zero wrist pain since I have been using this mouse and I am seriously considering purchasing another one for my home! Worth every penny!

    The Evoluent wireless mouse is a must have item

    This mouse is the best thing since sliced bread. I was having serious problems with my wrist and arm from being on the computer so much. After doing a fair amount of research I purchased one for the office and it solved all my problems. Once I had one at the office I had to get one for home as well. Trust and believe, you will not be disappointed one bit if you purchase an Evoluent mouse. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this item a 15!

    Stopped having Wrist Pain

    My employer gave me Evolent Vertical Mouse after I started having wrist pain and I stopped having issues while at work. Unfortunately I was still suffering at home with a traditional mouse. After trying some cheaper alternatives I eventually purchased one for home. It took me about a week to get used to the vertical mouse but now I’m hooked.

    This product is great if you have pain from repetitive strain. I personally have fibromyalgia and TOS and was in extreme pain from over use and repetitive strain. I saw a big improvement in the first week, and the pain continues to decrease. I will never go back to a standard mouse again!

    I do accounting and click million times a day at work. Because I push it so hard, my right hand has injured. My doc suggested me to try this mouse and I think it was a really wise change. :) I also rely on it when it comes to help me to work on my website. Overall, I suggestion the product. Wish it was smaller.

    I've been using Evoluent mouse for 6 years now and it's the only one that doesn't make my wrist hurt. It's a weird feeling at first because of the vertical design but it didn't take long to get used to it. I also like the programmable buttons which lessens the movement of the wrist.

    My previous Evoluent wasn't functioning properly, so I bought another one because it's perfect for keeping my wrist in neutral position thus decreasing wrist strain. Short life, only lasted 3 or 4 years.

    I'm happy with my purchase thus far. The mouse is comfortable and easy to use. The lip on the bottom that's used as a pinky rest is a great design feature that similar pointers do not have. It's best used with a wrist rest, which I have yet to purchase.

    Since I’ve been using this mouse all the pain I was having in my wrist and forearm is GONE. My brother told me about this product and he says the same thing!! It keeps your wrist and arm at a natural angle.
