    Ergonomic Mouse & Keyboard users. Tell us about your experience.


    Microsoft User Research is looking for people using an ergonomic mouse or keyboard for an upcoming User Research study. This is a great opportunity to share feedback with Microsoft User Researchers and have a direct impact on the future of Microsoft products and technology.

    This study will take place at Microsoft’s Redmond Campus with two hour sessions starting Thursday, July 5th. Each participant will be offered a choice of new Microsoft software, hardware or games from a list of our most popular products.

    The Microsoft user Research study aside, I wonder how many Sysnative members actually have a good ergonomic setup for their desktop and/or laptop or a favorite piece of ergonomic hardware.

    This is my favorite pain-preventing device: EvoluentTM VerticalMouseTM 3 Rev 2

    I used to have this horrible, horrible, wooden chair which we had in the loft, which was completely the wrong height, wrong shape, hard wood, etc. I used to get terrible backpain every day, even after a short bit of use, but I used to sit there all day anyway, and by the end, I would actually be feeling really quite ill.

    One day I just got so sick to death of the pain that I went out and bought a proper chair, with a headrest and everything. Wonderful! No more pain, and being at the computer is a lot more enjoyable now.

    Nothing else in my setup is really ergonomic, although that mouse looks interesting, thanks Corrine :), but nothing is too bad at the moment.

    You're young yet, niemiro, with many years in front of a computer ahead of you. Getting a decent chair was a wise move. Should you start noticing arm, wrist, neck pain, consider making changes. The things is, what works for one person, may not be applicable to another, whether due to height, size, vision, etc. For example, a lot of people ask about using the split keyboards. For people of a "normal size" who would end up keyboarding with their elbows pointing away from their body, those keyboards aren't really recommended.

    I've been using a keyboard for, well, for a very long time, starting with a manual typewriter. As a result, it has taken a toll on my hands and arms. Having had ergonomic reviews and later ergonomic training, I'm very careful with my setup as I know the results of a short time in the wrong position. As a result, I have a couple of "comfort curve" keyboards, located at the proper height for me and the monitor is positioned at the correct height to avoid neck pain.
