Eliminates
Arm Twisting

The patented shape supports your hand in a fully upright handshake position that eliminates forearm twisting. Many users said the Evoluent VerticalMouse cured their wrist or arm pain. See these actual user comments.

An ordinary horizontal mouse requires your forearm to twist away from its natural position.

 
No Retraining Necessary

The grip is the same as an ordinary mouse, just turned sideways, and the buttons are operated by the same fingers. There is virtually no retraining necessary.


The VerticalMouse does not move sideways when clicking with normal force because the thumb naturally opposes the fingers. Pointer control is as accurate as any other good mouse.

 
Reduces Hand Movements

1200 dpi true optical resolution sensor moves the pointer quickly to reduce hand movements. The pointer can be moved across a 17" monitor with only 1/2" (13 mm) movement of the mouse. Most other mice have 400-800 dpi and require more hand movement.

 
Easy Clicking

The button force is light for easy clicking, but still firm enough to avoid accidental actuation.

 
Programmable Buttons
(XP Pro, VIsta 32 only)

5 buttons each programmable with different functions in different applications. For example, a button can be Double Click in one application and Ctrl in another application.

 
Special Features
(XP Pro, Vista 32 only)

Speed toggle - cycle among up to 3 pointer speed settings by keyboard shortcut or mouse button. For example, a high speed for ordinary tasks, and a slow speed for graphics work.

Auto click - automatically perform a single or double click by pausing the pointer. Adjustable time delay for activation.

Click lock - press and hold a button momentarily to simulate continued pressing without holding down the button. Adjustable time delay for activation.

Break Reminder - visual and/or audio alerts to remind you to take a break.

 
Repositioning

The VerticalMouse 2 can be repositioned without moving the pointer:

 

Tilt it to the side to disable tracking.

Slide it without moving the pointer.
