I ordered this mouse because I was looking for help resolving issues with RSI/Carpal Tunnel Syndrome at home, due to extensive computer use at work and at home.

I work with computers for a living and I am lucky enough that my Employer bought an Evoluent Vertical Optical Mouse 3 (a more expensive alternative to this Accuratus Upright USB mouse). The Evoluent mouse is an exceptionally good mouse which helped to fully resolve my issues at work, but is so expensive that it is hard to justify the cost of it for home use if there is a suitable cheaper alternative.

However, upon receiving this Accuratus Upright USB Mouse I was very disappointed. I quote the following from the Manufacturer's Description on the Amazon web-site:

"This high quality ergonomic mouse fits comfortably in your palm in an upright position and keeps the bones in your arm straight, eliminating the uncomfortable twisted position caused by standard mice."

Sadly, the above did not hold true when I tried to use the mouse. When holding this mouse in a natural way according to its shape, the hand is not in an upright position and the bones of the forearm remain twisted in part (I am a man with medium-sized hands). The angle of the wrist is more like 45 degrees, rather than being closer to 90 degrees which would be more fitting for an "upright" mouse. It should be said that 45 degrees is still better than the bottom of your forearm being flat on the table with the bones twisted more.

That said, I have read the other reviews for this mouse and have the following to offer:

This mouse could bring some relief to most sufferers but I judge it quite unlikely to bring full relief for a high percentage of sufferers.

THE GOOD:
I started getting RSI symptons about two years ago so I tried this mouse. It was strange for about a day or two but then it was absolutely natural to use. The RSI symptoms disappeared over night. I cannot praise this mouse enough for how it has helped me with my RSI.

THE BAD:
After just over a year it started acting a bit funny i.e I'd press a button and it wouldnt respond. (the scrolly has always been poor to use but I dont really need it so Ive managed to live with it), anyway, so Ive purchased another one and this one was bad from the beginning. I press a button and it acts like Ive double or triple clicked ! Its really frustrating because the ergonomics are second to none but the build quality is absolutely shocking !

There are other ergonomic mice out there but they just dont match up to this. The Evoluent has an annoying button layout so the right mouse button is positioned next to your little finger ! And the hand shoe is just rubbish ! I would happily pay a hundred pounds for this mouse if it was built to the standard that a microsoft mouse is built.

I really hope that they sort out the build quality issues but until then I have not choice to keep perservering with this.

Hi

After suffering from arm/shoulder/carpal pain i borrowed an Evoluent mouse from a colleague who was using one - he let me use it for a few months, then I decided to give him it back and purchase my own vertical mouse (this one) so i can make a direct comparison. I use PCs for maybe 12+ hours per day.

1) Build quality:

As expected, for the money the build quality on the Evoluent mouse is far superior, i would not change anything. The Accuratus however has an unusual mouse-wheel button which feels cheap and takes some getting used to and there are some fairly large gaps in the case which i do not like. However it has not broken yet which is good. The Accuratus is much lighter than the Evo, which personally i like but might not be to the taste of everybody.

2) Effectiveness at helping Carpal tunnel/Arm pain.

I find that both mice are good at this. The Evoluent is at an angle which is closer to vertical when compared to the Accuratus so it is a bit better i think. But both mice are easy to acclimatise to and work well at giving your arm a break

3) Value for money

Accuratus is far better value for money. It feels cheap sure but at these prices who is complaining. Evoluent had a monopoly on this for far too long - and while their build quality is good, not everyone can afford it.

Summing up:

Worth a shot - it helped me out. I also have started using carpal tunnel stretches to help mitigate the problem.

The charity I work for had already forked out over £60 for a mouse that wouldn't work on our thin client network. Being in their bad books, I didn't dare ask for another one with programmable buttons I'd never be able to use so I stumped for this one.

Despite the negative reviews, I find it's great. It's cheap and won't be any good for anyone doing graphics or detailed work, but as a general day to day mouse I find it works for me. True, it's not a full 'handshake' mouse, but I have rheumatoid arthritis affecting my wrists and shoulder, and since using this mouse, combined with a mini-keyboard (without numerical pad) my pain has improved 90%. I can quite happily use this mouse all day long and even bought one for home.

So far my work mouse has lasted 18 months, so I think I got their money's worth!
