Choosing An Ergonomic Mouse
An Ergonomic Mouse is a Great Computer Device To Have!
You will find that there are a range of different designs when it comes to choosing an ergonomic mouse.
You will find that a shape that fits more easily into the hand may surround the traditional roller ball. Alternatively the roller may be replaced by a trackball.
A Trackball ergonomic mouse has a very large ball which is controlled by your thumb. So instead of moving the mouse around the desktop as you would normally do, using the wrist, both the hand and the mouse sits still, and just the thumb moves.
Using your thumb you push or spin the large ball with the other buttons being placed where they can be easily reached in a natural position.

The Best in Ergonomic Keyboards
More and more people have become aware that badly designed workplace computer equipment is responsible for aches and pains. Which is why ergonomic keyboards are becoming more popular as they are designed to prevent these problems and hopefully increase productivity.
A simple explanation of Ergonomics is that it is the design of equipment to fit the user. When equipment is designed to meet the needs of the user it means that keyboards and mice don't cause a strain in the wrist. You will probably be aware of Repetitive strain injury (RSI) which is increasingly common wrist injury for workers who spend a lot of time typing each day.
When you see an ergonomically designed keyboards you will notice that they are curved to help the user reach the keys more easily. Rather than the flat and straight keyboard you are probably familiar with which needs users to bend their wrists in order to reach the keys.
With an ergonomic keyboard you will notice that it is split down the middle and bends outwards. Some will have an increase in height towards the middle, or they may curve up and down. Some of the function keys will be placed in what is termed "dead space" rather than the normal places, which makes them easier to reach.
Microsoft offers a range of Natural keyboards some of which can look quite severe! These include a media keyboard, the Natural Elite, and both wired and wireless models. They also offer a less extreme version of their ergonomic keyboard. This is the Comfort Curve keyboard which has no split in the keyboard a gentle curve to the line of keys.
Alternatively the Logitech Wave keyboard does not split in the middle. Instead it has an upwards curve towards the ends of the rows. It has a gentle wave which forms a hollow where the hands sit when you are typing. This approach keeps the keys closer to your fingers.
