Orthovia OrthoMouse is designed to supports the hand and fingers evenly while they adopt the correct and innocuous position. It lets your hand works and rests (between periods of activity) in the Position of Function. The thumb remains in opposition to the other fingers at all times, which is the main distinguishing characteristic of the human hand. John Napier, states: “Perhaps the most important movement of the human hand is opposition”. It allows control, tactility and precision since the fingers assume a position very similar to the one used during writing.
Ensures accuracy and precision while navigating cursor – When the thumb is allowed to be opposed to the fingers, the hand is better able to take advantage of enhanced control over the mouse without excessively ‘gripping’ the mouse at the sides. The normal positioning of the hand should not overstress the hand, as it affords control to the hand similar to writing.
Balanced Flexion of the Fingers – By maintaining the hand’s natural ‘position of function’, the Orthomouse can help to relax the hand, especially with respect to generating left and right mouse clicks, by minimizing stresses due to overextending the finger muscles or excessive pronation/supination.
