Read a carpal tunnel mouse consumer review from Susan Antonelli on the logitech trackball and logitech cordless trackball.
These are two carpal tunnel designed mouses that many people like using.
I was fairly new at the computer world when hubby and I were garage sailing not so long ago. I spotted a strange-looking mouse, new in it's package for only $5.00.
It had a red ball in the center. It was a Logitech 90430-0403. I grabbed it and ran it over to show it to hubby and he said.
"For $5.00 we might as well try it". It was still new in the original blister pac so hubby got it home, unpacked and installed it. I loved it. I had no trouble adjusting to this new version of a mouse. I found it so much easier to use than the regular mouse that I had started out with.
This roller ball design gave me a comfort zone for my hand instead of making me use my entire arm and wrist. I'm prone to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome so this problem was alleviated using this mouse design. I can rest my arm and hand while working the ball.
I use my pointer finger to move the ball and I needn't move my arm. It requires little or no manipulation. Next to the ball are the right and left click buttons. I had no trouble getting used to this version, after a few minutes I was quite comfortable.
I have found that in general patients like these newer ergonomic type mouses. You can also add some rather low cost items to your computer work station that can really make a difference in your hand and arm symptoms. Things like gel and paddes wrist rests, ergonomic mouse pads, etc.
