R-Go HE Ergonomic Mouse from R-Go Tools

R-Go HE Ergonomic Mouse from R-Go Tools

The R-GO HE Ergonomic Mouse from R-GO Tools rotates the hand upward and outward. This angled posture reduces strain on the tissues of the forearm when compared with the traditional pronated "palm down" position. In addition, because the hand is now elevated up and away from the surface, users are no longer able to "plant" the heel of their hand in the manner that the traditional mouse position encourages. Thus, the potential for the development of RSI from repetitive or sustained wrist extension is virtually eliminated.

The R-GO HE Ergonomic Mouse offers support for the hand and fingers, encouraging users to let their hand relax against the natural contours. Because hand sizes vary, the HE Ergonomic Mouse is available in two sizes. Both sizes incorporate a flange so that the little finger is not left dragging along the desk surface. The Medium is sized to accommodate hands sizes up 7.3" in length, is available in both Left and Right hand versions, and is equipped with a 4-level sensor that reads from 800-3200 DPI. The Large is currently only available for Right hand users and is better suited for larger hands ranging from 6.9" - 7.7" in length. It is equipped with a 4-level sensor that can read from 500-2500 DPI.

The R-GO HE Ergonomic Mouse is also available in a Wireless model as well as the BREAKmodel which provides visual cues to remind users to take regular breaks in order to reduce the risk of developing RSI.

RollerMouse Red Wireless from Contour Design

RollerMouse Red Wireless from Contour Design

TThe RollerMouse Red Wireless from Contour Design is the latest member of the RollerMouse family of inline / central pointing devices. It has the most significant changes made to the Rollermouse design so far: sleek aluminum housing that is solid and sturdy; a newly redesigned rollerbar with added thickness and texture; and a completely different tracking technology from that used in previous models. It is also avaiable in both a wired and wireless model.

The improved redesign of the Red makes cursor control more precise and effortless without compromising durability and robustness, replacing the old mechanical clicking with a newer "virtual" clicking mechanism. It is the most advanced model in the RollerMouse family.

Note: Keyboard not included.

Freestyle Edge Keyboard from Kinesis Gaming

Freestyle Edge Keyboard from Kinesis Gaming

Calling all Gamers, Graphic Designers, and Programmers! There is no longer a need to sacrifice performance in pursuit of ergonomics. The Freestyle Edge from Kinesis Gaming integrates proven ergonomics and tenkeyless design in a mechanical keyboard packed with the latest in custom programmability and performance. The result is a keyboard that offers the advanced functionality that high performance users demand while providing the same ergonomic benefits that tens of thousands of everyday computer users have enjoyed for years.

Based on the proven ergonomic design of the Freestyle2 and its predecessor, the Freestyle Solo, the Freestyle Edge is an adjustable, separated keyboard offering considerable ergonomic benefits. The Freestyle Edge Keyboard is divided into two separate modules. The two sides are connected by an adjustable linking cable that can be adjusted in length from 12" to 20". This separation allows users to position the left and right sides of the keyboard shoulder width apart, allowing the shoulders, elbows, arms and wrists to relax in an anatomically neutral position. This greatly improves posture and blood flow in the upper body, prevents undesirable rotation at the shoulders, and eliminates ulnar deviation at the wrist. For gamers this separation offers the additional advantage of being able to position a mousing device, joystick or other controller centrally located between the keyboard halves. As well, for games which relay primarily on left hand controls the right half can be positioned out of the way to the right and with the left module and mouse or controller being brought in to a more central location.

The symmetrical, compact design (achieved by eliminating the ten key numeric pad) reduces the reach for the mouse for both left- and right-handed users. The Freestyle Edge Keyboard provides access to numbers along the top row. Users who want a stand-alone numeric keyboard have the option of adding either the Low Force Tactile Numeric Keypad or the Freestyle2 Keypad for PC.

The Freestyle Edge Keyboard is available in three models that each feature different premium Cherry Mechanical keyswitches; Cherry MX Blue, Cherry MX Brown or Cherry MX Red). These premium keyswitches are topped by full height concave laser etched keycaps and are equipped with blue backlighting featuring 12 custom lighting modes.

Ring Pen Ultra from Grandee Corporation

Ring Pen Ultra from Grandee Corporation

The Ring Pen Ultra from Grandee Corporation restores writing comfort for those suffering from conditions such as arthritis which make it difficult to maintain a grip on a pen or pencil. The Ring Pen Ultra slides onto the index finger and with the thumb and middle finger acting as stabilizing guides provides full control for even fine movements.

The Ring Pen Ultra builds on the successful design of the earlier No-Grip Ring Pen by providing the same "gripless" functionality but now with the capability to accommodate virtually any pen, pencil, or even paint brushes.

While intended to serve the needs of those who cannot grip it also offers all users the chance to work with a more relaxed hand, reducing the potential for the development of RSI related to the tight grip required to control most writing devices.

The same features which make the Ring Pen Ultra successful as a writing aid also make it well suited to serve as an eating utensil holder for those who have difficulty holding or manipulating a fork or spoon. Utensils can be easily inserted into the slot, creating "gripless" control and restoring independence and dignity to those who might otherwise have extreme difficulty or be completely unable hold the utensils.

The Ring Pen Ultra is available in 3 sizes&emdash;Small, Medium, and Large&medash;thus providing a solution to suit virtually any user, be they a child or an adult with large fingers. The small will accommodate children and those with very small hands, the Medium will accommodate most women with average sized hands, and the Large should work for most men.
