Ergonomics The Right Handed Evoluent VerticalMouse

The Evoluent VerticalMouse 3 is a patented mouse that supports your hand in a relaxed handshake # position, eliminating the arm-twisting required by ordinary mice. The VerticalMouse remains steady, not moving sideways when clicking with normal force as the thumb naturally opposes the finger movements. The mouse has a patented shape that supports your hand in a fully upright handshake position that eliminates the forearm twisting required by ordinary mice, thus relieving hand, wrist, and arm pain.


Easy to use All 5 buttons are easily operable without contorting fingers. The button force is light enough for easy clicking but firm enough to avoid accidental actuation.
Size Fits both large and small hands.
Prevents desk rubbing A lip on the bottom edge prevents the little finger rubbing the desk.
High performance tracking High performace gaming grade sensor tracks extremely accurately, and moves the pointer quickly to reduce hand movements.
Programmable buttons 5 programmable buttons with different functions in different applications.

Special functions:

Speed Toggle Cycle up to 3 pointer speed settings using a mouse or keyboard shortcut.
Auto Click Automatically perform a single or double click by pausing the pointer.
Click Lock Press and hold a button momentarily to simulate continued pressing.
Break Reminder Visual and/or audio alerts to remind you to take a break.
Reshaped to fit a greater range of hand sizes
A 2200 dpi true optical resolution sensor instead of a 1200 dpi sensor.
An optical scroll wheel with detents (clicks) instead of a smooth rolling wheel.
A small lip along the bottom edge to prevent the little finger from dragging on the desk.
Additional driver functions, such as button programming customizable for different applications.
A completely new internal mechanical design for improved parts fit and button feel.
A completely new electrical design for improved reliability.


Resolution Avago 3080 infrared sensor, 2200 dpi optical resolution
Cable 2m
Colour Silver & Black

5.0 out of 5 stars A real RSI relief 8 Jan 2008
I've been having some serious trouble with RSI at work and at home, and having had a new chair bought for me, moved to a better desk, started taking regular breaks, and performing exercises regularly, I was seeing some let-up, but not any real progress towards normality. I'd even visited specialist doctors who weren't offering me any useful advice.

I decided to research an alternative mouse and eventually asked my work to buy me this Evoluent mouse. It has been a revolution. The mouse has almost completely got rid of my problem, something I was beginning to think was impossible. I was initially apprehensive because of the price and because there isn't much written about it on the web anywhere, but this mouse is worth every penny. I'm currently toying with the idea of getting one for home. Would be nice if they released a wireless version though....

5.0 out of 5 stars Like holding a cloud. 22 Jan 2008
I was going to get a wireless mouse at first, but then started looking into ergonomic mice, and eventually bought this despite the high price tag - mainly because it seemed more important to me to get rid of my problematic RSI, than to have a wireless mouse, and also becuase of the positive reviews. It's brilliant, really nice to use, the tactile feel is amazing, and it's difficult to emphasise the difference that not twisting your arm makes (which is what you do with a normal mouse). It does look a bit big & weird in the photos, but it's a dream to use and well worth the money. It's like holding a cloud. No really, it is!

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended 21 Oct 2007
Having changed jobs and been given a laptop I found my old ergonomic mouse would not plug into the laptop! I quickly started to to get pain back again in my hand/arm and neck and was desperate for a solution. I read up on the subject and decide to buy this mouse as one of 3 to try (an expensive way to do things but as I couldn't find any to try in the shops and I was in pain, I wanted a quick solution). For info I use a MAC at home and a windows PC at work.

This is a very good looking mouse with a fantastic tactile non-slip rubberised mouse surface (which is a pleasure to hold and seems to aid grip). It requires you to hold your hand almost at right angles to the desk, like shaking hands. This stops you having to twist your arm round to hold your hand palm face down (which is what you have to do with a normal mouse). I plugged it straight into my MAC at home and it worked first time and was EXTREMELY comfortable. At work on my windows laptop it did not seem to work properly (the cursor would not move around the screen properly and was very slow and jerky) which I felt was perhaps down to me not downloading the software required. I didn't do this download the software because it was my mouse and I would have to explain to our IT dept why I wasn't using standard issue Company equipment!

More expensive than the Speed-link ergonomic mouse, which I also bought and is very similar, its design and feel is definitely more upmarket. It feels good to use and and works perfectly on my MAC (I've had it a couple weeks now). Best of all my pain has now gone. I recommend this product to anyone with a MAC and I'm sure with a bit more perseverance than I showed it would probably work just as well on a PC. NB because of its design it is taller than your average mouse (around 7.5cms).

3.0 out of 5 stars Great at first, but then new pains may appear 7 May 2010
Once you get used to it, it is a very good mouse as the position it puts your arm/wrist in feels quite natural. However, I found that after a few months of use, this position does create new pains, especially linked to the ring and little fingers that are somehow under more stress with the vertical mouse.

My advice would be not to ditch it completely, but rather alternate with a regular mouse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big mouse with attitude to match! 24 Feb 2009
By Dan
Verified Purchase
I've just received my Evoluent Vertical Mouse 3 from Hypertec, delivered the day after it was ordered.

I removed my old HP mouse and plugged the Evoluent in and it worked without any fuss. I had to remedy the pointer speed as it was flying round my 2 screens but that was easy enough through the control panel. I downloaded the driver from the Evoluent site as described in the accompanying instructions. This provided a link in the Quick Launch panel to allow me to re-arrange the button functions as required as well as pointer speed etc. There is an array of functions to which you can allocate the buttons and wheel, or if you prefer turn some off until you get used to the mouse. There is a tendency to hit a button inadvertently when you move the mouse around.

I have large hands so being able to grab a meaty mouse in the way it's possible makes it very comfortable. The hand angle removes any physical stress that may have been present with the traditional mouse.

I found myself at ease with it straight away. It will take a short while to fully get used to the new hand position and for things to become totally automatic but it is a totally different concept.

First impression is really good and can't imagine I would want to go back to the traditional mouse.

It is a little pricey in comparison to the traditional types but when you tot up the hours with your hand on the bloomin' thing each day, and times that by the number of days, weeks, months and years you will be using it, does it really matter?!

Your mouse will soon become your unexpected friend - but don't neglect your partner!
