Why use a Mousetrapper?
Mousetrapper is an ergonomic alternative to a mouse that prevents repetitive strain injuries and other problems that can occur when you use a conventional mouse. Because Mousetrapper is positioned centrally in front of the keyboard it encourages an ergonomically healthy position that keeps your arms close to your body and your hands near the keyboard.
This helps you avoid and in many cases relieve strain injuries that can arise from over-stretching your arm, as you do with a conventional mouse. It eliminates the need to stretch beyond the keyboard while using the mouse. The wide, cushioned wrist supports also relieve strain on your neck, shoulders, arms and wrists.
Our thinking behind
- Many years of research and development lie behind the idea of the Mousetrapper central mouse, which led to the launch of our first product back in 1994.
- The technology has continued to evolve for over 20 years and has led to a number of new products for different working situations and work places. Mousetrapper is also made in Sweden.
- Form follows function for all Mousetrapper products.
- The unique Mousetrapper feel is best appreciated by placing your index, middle and ring fingers on the control pad, which allows you to control the cursor with simple movements as the control pad moves smoothly in two dimensions. MT Keys software lets you easily reconfigure the existing functions of your Mousetrapper so you can choose exactly which functions you want quick access to.
Invest in yourself
– Workplace wellness
At Mousetrapper we understand how you can prevent and often relieve the strain injuries that can arise when you work in front of a computer for long periods of time. We call this Workplace Wellness.
Discomfort such as headaches and neck pain can be distressing in the long term. It therefore makes good sense to try to find simple ways to prevent and mitigate such problems in the work place.
If you suffer from neck pain, headaches or muscle pain in your arms that you feel is due to working in front of a computer for long periods each day, you can check the way your desk is set up and take a few simple steps to see if they help.
If they do help, it may be a good idea to tell your colleagues about what you have done, as there could be others who are experiencing the same problems and would be grateful for some simple tips.
Things you can try:
- Adjust your chair so that your feet are supported on the floor and keep your back straight while you are sitting.
- Keep your arms close to your body while working.
- Rest your arms on wrist supports or your desk.
- Vary your working position; use a stand-and-sit desk to alternate between standing and sitting.
- Position the screen at a comfortable distance that does not put strain on your eyes or neck.
- Review your choice of mouse
Workplace wellness is about well-being, but also about profitability and productivity, which are important for everyone in the work place.
