I have been using the Logitech MX Vertical Mouse for a few weeks now and when you first see it the thing that strikes you is the unusual design and shape.
It is an ergonomic mouse and is designed to “reduce muscle strain, decrease wrist pressure, and improve posture”
I was sceptical when i first saw it – I did convey that to Logitech but to their credit they understood my concerns but still sent me one to review.
I have come to really like this mouse and believe that many could benefit from the features.
Because of its unusual shape it takes a bit of getting used to but will feel second nature to you in a short space of time .
MX Vertical’s natural handshake position reduces muscular strain by 10 percent and promotes a more ergonomic posture.
MX Vertical’s unique 57° vertical angle reduces the pressure on your wrist, while your thumb is positioned comfortably on the thumb rest.
MX Vertical has been designed and tested with criteria set out by leading ergonomists – improving posture, lowering muscle strain, and reducing wrist pressure
Advanced optical tracking with a dedicated cursor speed switch results in 4x less hand movement2 – reducing muscle and hand fatigue.
MX Vertical is shaped for the human hand and smooth to the touch.Its unique form is designed to fit a variety of hand shapes and sizes, while the textured rubber surface assures a solid and natural grip.
Conclusion: We take the choice of a mouse for granted sometimes and don’t seem to think that it matters but for those who spend a lot of time on a computer it does matter and your choice of mouse or keyboard is important to the productivity you can output. The Logitech MX Vertical Mouse is a good investment for those that have issues with their posture , wrists and hands , I have enjoyed using it and I recommend it.
