Computer input device- RollerMouse Free

Contour Design Ergonomics says RollerMouse Free lets users work with hands and arms in the optimal work zone in front of the keyboard, thus minimising the risk of discomfort and repetitive strain injuries.

It adds that centralised pointing and clicking creates a varied work mode, allowing both hands to be used, thus reducing tension and stress. Also, there is no device to grip – the hand can navigate while flat and extended, so stress through the carpal tunnel is avoided.

RollerMouse Free comes with the usual mouse functions as default settings, which can be adapted to individual needs. Cursor control is said to be easy and performed with just two or three fingers on the roller bar, with light, small movements. RollerMouse Free lies completely still, allowing the user to relax arms and shoulders and use only hands and fingers when using the roller bar and keyboard. Contour says RollerMouse Free was one of the winners of the Attendees’ Choice Awards at the National Ergonomics Conference and Exposition (NECE) 2008.
