The R-Go Break HE Ergonomic Mouse from R-Go Tools is a proactive model of the HE Ergonomic Mouse which includes customizable "Break Reminder" software and a coloured visual reminder on the mouse. The Break model features the same design and functionality of the other HE Ergonomic Mouse models, rotating 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. This virtually eliminates the potential for the development of RSI from repetitive or sustained wrist extension.
The customizable "Break Reminder" software provides a mechanism for users to set the duration and spacing of break periods as a well as a maximum daily use. The software monitors computer activity and changes the logo colour between Green (Good), Orange (Break Reminder), and Red (Break was skipped or daily usage limit exceeded).
The R-Go HE Ergonomic Mouse is also available in a standard Wired model as well as the Wireless model for cord-free convenience.
