RollerMouse Free3 by Contour Design

RollerMouse Free3 by Contour Design

The RollerMouse Free3 by Contour Design is the lowest profile RollerMouse model in the RollerMouse family of products. At only 0.9" high, this low profile mouse will seamlessly work with most standard rectangular-style keyboards without getting in the way while typing. The Free3 boasts several improved features over its predecessor, including more and faster speeds (10 speeds from 600 to 2800 dpi), two new buttons for forward and back in most internet browsers, more padding in the new built-in wrist support for added comfort, and an aluminum base on the underside of the unit for increased strength and stability. In addition, the rollerbar has been redesigned with a new sensor, allowing for more precise cursor movements, so that the Free3 can easily move over and work with multiple screens. As many users now work with two or more screens, these added features ensure that the Free3 will easily work with the overall screen size of such users.

The Free3 also comes in either a wired or wireless version, so that those who want to reduce extra wires or complicated cable management have the choice of going wireless. The wireless version has an on/off switch to save on power if needed, as well as a small receiver (USB) that can be securely stored in the magnetized battery housing when not in use.

Imagine Work Surface by Microthin

Imagine Work Surface by Microthin

The Imagine Work Surface by Microthin is an exceptionally thin (0.38 mm) desk pad made of one single ply of antibacterial, chemically inert polyvinylchloride (PVC). The top is ideally suited to provide a precise tracking surface for optical and laser mice. The patented “sure-grip” bottom securely adheres to any smooth surface. Simply clean the mounting surface, press down firmly and the Imagine Work Surface is secured. This desk pad seamlessly integrates on the worksurface and is easily cleaned to the desired degree, using hot water or even soap, industrial cleaners and disinfectants (for applications where hygiene is a prime concern).

The Imagine Work Surface also functions well as a writing surface superior to most common desk surfaces. While protecting the desk surface it provides a convenient surface on which to jot down notes on paper. The surface can even be written on directly with wet erase pens. Due to the matte finish on the pad, there will be no issue with glare off the surface.

The Imagine Work Surface provides plenty of surface area for unrestricted movement of even the largest of specialized ergonomic mice. The large dimensions let users set their mouse pointer speed lower and engage the larger muscles of the arm for mouse movement, rather than relying on micro-movements of the fingers and wrist, actions which greatly increase the risk of RSI and associated injuries such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
