The Goldtouch Semi-Vertical Mouse from Key Ovation addresses two common issues associated with traditional mouse usage by rotating the hand outward to a 66° tilt. The outward rotation reduces strain on the tissues of the forearm when compared with the familiar pronated "palm down" position. Since users no longer have the option of "planting" the heel of their hand the potential for wrist extension is accordingly greatly reduced. Both right and left-handed users are now able to benefit from this design.
The body of the Goldtouch Semi-Vertical Mouse is intended to provide a comfortable supportive structure for the right hand, encouraging users to let their fingers curl and rest naturally over the buttons. The mouse comes with an optional Ergo-Grip flange that attaches magnetically to the mouse to provide support for the entire hand. With the Ergo-Grip flange in place users are encouraged to mouse using their entire arm, rather than trying to micro-move the mouse with the fingers.
The Semi-Vertical Mouse readily offers support to hands up to 7.5" in length, and with the Ergo-Grip flange attached, will support even longer hands up to 8". Note: Users with smaller hands could find that the Goldtouch Semi-Vertical Mouse is a bit large and may wish to consider a solution better sized to fit their hand dimensions.
The Goldtouch Semi-Vertical Mouse is available in models for both the right and left hands. Right-handed users can select either the Wired or Wireless models, while the left-handed model is only available in a wireless version. Both wired and wireless models provide users with easily-adjusted multiple DPI settings for fine-tuning cursor sensitivity. To further customize performance users have access to 4 removable 5 gram weights. Standard Left, Right, and Middle click (on scroll wheel) functions are available as well as Page Forward and Page Back thumb buttons. The rubberized textured scroll wheel features detents for clear tactile feedback.
