I am UPGRADING one of my periferal gadgets to my computer. I am changing from the old / outdated (Horizontal) mice - that requires me to keep the palm of my hand facing down / on my desktop to a Vertical mouse - that supposedly helps to keep my hand in a more "user-friendly" position / with my thumb facing foreward / upward while I sit at my terminal.
Experiencing the soreness / tension - because of the tiny-movements of my hand, operating my mouse (commonly for hours-at-a-time) in my one-hand (I am Right-handed by nature) I hope that a different-position of my hand will help the soreness of the muscles / tendon I am / have been suffering with my hand facing downward.
I understand that Precise-placement of a Vertical mouse plays into how-effective this can help my tense / sore wrist and arm.
What should be my set-parameters (location / height on my desktop - to where I place my elbow while using a Vertical mouse, etc.) should I adjust for my desk / seat / monitor?
With Vertical mice-technology, does the Ball-mechanism inside the side of this control adversely-affect the tendons on the outside of my hand - wiith the tiny(er) movements I will make?
In addition to repeatedly Standing-up, walking away from my desk, what more therapy should I do in addition to an upper-body Areobics session - every 30 minutes because of using a vertical mouse?
