TOP 5 Ergonomic Mice for PCs and Laptops
Ergonomic peripherals are slowly becoming a more frequently used device for both people working and using a computer from home, and from work. Ergonomic mice are the most common peripheral and there is a good reason for it. These mice can help you work without getting pain in your hand and can help your body feel better when leaving your desk. Although it may not seem it, people with hand injuries are also recommended ergonomic mice to suit the injury to make sure healing can be done efficiently and correctly. Today, we take a look at some of the best rated ergonomic mice, that you might want to consider if you are wanting to buy one!
Note: These are not in any specific order!
Logitech MX Master
When you think of an ergonomic mouse, you may think it’s primarily upright. This isn’t necessarily the case as Logitech has developed a somewhat uniquely designed wireless mouse, that can be used specifically for thumb injuries.
As mentioned above, the Logitech MX Master is a wireless mouse that can be paired to up to 3 devices and you can easily switch between them with a switch of a button. Along with this, the MX Master is also Bluetooth and Unifying receiver compatible, should you not have a USB or Bluetooth receiver in your device. If batteries are a concern for you with a wireless mouse, don’t worry - Logitech has suggested a full charge can offer up to 40 days of power on a single charge.
If you don’t like the Black and Gold (known as the Special Edition), it also comes in a variation of colors such as blue, bronze, light grey and dark grey all of which look clean on the well-shaped Logitech mouse.
As for pricing, it is a little more expensive than some of the ergonomic mice on this list, however, it is definitely worth the money. Check it out on Amazon here.
JellyComb WGSB-014B Ergonomic Mouse
A very common brand for ergonomic peripherals is JellyComb. JellyComb has a large range of mice that can support all kinds of issues, or just for common use for people who would like an ergonomic mouse.
Similar to the Logitech mouse, this JellyComb model can support both USB and Bluetooth connections which again can possibly connect to up to 3 devices at any one time with a similar button to switch between them should you need to. Again, with it being wireless you may consider the battery life to be a problem - however, JellyComb has made this mouse rechargeable which allows for easier usage and a longer battery span.
Something that JellyComb does that is a little different from the other brands in this list is they offer a wide range of support for people with different needs. For example, this mouse can be bought with a certain type of USB, Bluetooth connectivity, rechargeability and even goes as far as developing left-handed mice for people who use the mouse on the left.
Logitech M570 Trackman
Another mouse from Logitech is the M570 Trackman. Another wireless mouse that offers a significantly longer battery life and ergonomic stand for your needs. The Logitech M570 is very versatile, meaning you can precisely control the mouse pointer and use where you need to, use the trackball mouse. Not only that, but the Logitech M570 is great on all surfaces too, with it being tested on hard tabletops and super-soft surfaces such as a sofa.
Something that this mouse surprises a lot of people buy is its long-lasting battery life. Even though you add batteries to this (AA), Logitech suggests that this can last for around 18 months before you need to change the batteries. The mouse also has a handy indicator for when you need to change the batteries, but we don’t think you’ll be seeing that all too much.
You can take a look at all the super detailed information over on Logitech’s Amazon page here.
Anker Ergonomic Optical Wired Mouse
Anker is well known for their peripherals and accessories, however recently they’ve been making a range of ergonomic devices. This mouse is no exception, the Anker Ergonomic Wired Mouse is very similar to the other mice in this list, apart from it’s wired. Don’t worry, there is a wireless version here should you want that. Anker claims to have a scientific ergonomic design that encourages a healthy natural “handshake” wrist and arm positions for smoother movement when using the mouse.
Similar to the other mice, the DPI of this mouse is only 1000, however, you shouldn’t need much more than this when using it for general usage. There are also two buttons on the mouse that act as forward / backward for browsers, which can be helpful if you like to browse the web a lot.
As this is a cabled mouse, the cable itself is 4.8ft long, or around 1.4m. Something that Anker do really well is their warranty, which in this case is 18-months and a lifetime of technical support should anything go wrong with the mouse.
The wireless edition doesn’t have too many extra features other than it’s missing cable. It does have a slightly higher DPI (1600) and 5 buttons over the two on the wired mouse.
Evoluent Right-Handed Vertical 3
Another wired mouse on this list is the Version 3 (Right-Handed) from Evoluent. Evoluent has definitely thought about their customers when designing and developing this mouse, and have outlined key benefits to using their mouse over the others. Some of them being the 5 programmable buttons on the mouse that are all available to each finger, meaning your fingers don’t have to cross over which could cause strain.
The Evoluent also includes a small rubber lip on the right side with might not seem like much, but it does stop your little finger from rubbing against the surface which a lot of other brands don’t think about. This mouse also has a 2200DPI setting, which you may not need but is there should you want it. An optical scroll wheel with detents instead of a smooth-rolling wheel is also something that they outline to be nicer than other mice.
Although this mouse does cost a little bit more, there are a few more special functions and features that you can find here.
Although you may not need one, an ergonomic mouse will definitely help you with pain in your hand when you’re using your computer whether it be at school, work or at home. Hopefully, this will help you make your decision on what might be the best mouse for you, but let us know down below!
