Avoids forearm twisting for comfort and good health*
The patented shape supports your hand in an upright neutral posture that generally avoids forearm twisting. Many users, including medical doctors, ergonomists and physical therapists, said the Evoluent VerticalMouse provides superior comfort and even relieved their wrist pain.*
The shape is thoughtfully sculpted for uncompromised comfort and easy-to-reach programmable buttons. No finger contortions are needed to operate the buttons.
Adjustable laser sensor
Pointer speed controls on the side allow convenient adjustment without even releasing your grip from the mouse.
Improved thumb rest
The thumb rest has been reshaped to provide even more comfort over earlier versions.
Pointer speed indicators
Top mounted LEDs show through the chrome thumb rest to indicate selected pointer speed including extra low (XL), low (LO), MD (medium), to high (HI).
Now two thumb buttons
A new bottom thumb button provides greatly extended functionality when used with the included driver.
Lighted Evoluent logo
The logo is pure eye candy. The illumination turns off when the system is in sleep mode to conserve notebook battery power.
Extended lip prevents rubbing
An extra wide lip along the bottom edge prevents the last finger from rubbing the desk.
Powerful and intuitive driver
Evoluent Mouse Manager for Windows provides extensive but easy to use functionality for 6 buttons through a simple and intuitive interface.
Approved mouse of University of California at Berkeley
The Evoluent VerticalMouse 2 (an earlier model identical in concept) was evaluated in 2007 by a team at the health services clinic in UC Berkeley, including medical doctors, physical therapists, ergonomists, and administrators. It was found to be comfortable, easily adapted to, and promote a neutral wrist and forearm posture. It was the only vertical type mouse approved for staff use within UC Berkeley and for sale in the campus store at that time.

? Includes driver for Windows XP, Vista and Win 7 in 32/64 bit for programming all 6 buttons. The driver is not required. The VerticalMouse 4 still has basic functionality without it.

While this is a great improvement over a basic mouse and would be good for people who have no elbow support while using the computer it is not for me as my desk is U shaped and my arms are supported to take pressure off my shoulders. The vertical arrangement causes a shift muscles in my arm that are used .. aka ones that haven't been used in a while complained .. also my pinky finger will have to develop new callouses and felt cramped.
The buttons are very light and picking up the mouse and moving it leads to some strange results unless you disable the third bottom mouse button or you can use it as a convenient way to get out of any game you want to mention without exiting normally nearly every time you pick the mouse up.
This mouse is very nice for anyone who gets any sort of finger/wrist pains after prolonged usage of a mouse. The angle your hand sits at is much more natural than the usual mice, and takes a lot of stress off your wrist.
The buttons are nice and responsive, but not quite as nice as my Razer Mamba. The middle click button is definitely handy, and after setting my mouse wheel button to a double click, I've reduced even more strain by not needing to double click anymore (sounds ridiculous, but when programming this helps a ton).
I've purchased four of these mice just over a year ago for my brother and I to use at work and home. We love them and don't like using other types of mice, but we have noticed a couple of flaws to them:
This is a must have for people that are on the computer allot. Between this mouse and an ergo keyboard all issues that I attributed to carpal tunnel are gone. And not in two days I owned the first gen EVO mouse before upgrading to this version.
