Penclic is an ergonomic mouse that has been designed to give you a very similar experience to using a traditional pen. The pen grip nature of the mouse offers a natural and relaxed working position and can be used on most surfaces without the need for a pad or tablet. Penclic can be used at any workstation as it operates like a normal mouse, however, due to its pen-like shape, artists and designers may find it particularly useful.
Penclic Mouse enables you to perform small movements on your computer utilising your hands and fingers. Delicate and precision work with a traditional mouse is difficult to achieve as these kinds of mice engage the larger muscles of the arms and shoulders which simply cannot function in this way. This is not only inefficient but can also result in discomfort, fatigue and strain.
The likelihood of obtaining a Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI), is drastically reduced when using Penclic Mouse instead of a traditional mouse. RSI can occur due to repetitive, controlled work and holding your hands and arms in an unnatural posture repeatedly for a long time. Early signs of RSI can be soreness, tingling or discomfort in the neck arms, wrists and fingers. Other typical symptoms are:
- Burning, aching or shooting pain
- Tremors, clumsiness and numbness
- Fatigue or lack of strength
- Weakness in the hands or forearms.
- Cold hands, particularly the fingertips
Penclic can also drastically reduce the chances of obtaining Carpel Tunnel Syndrome which is the compression of the median nerve as it passes into the hand. The median nerve provides sensation to your thumb, index finger, long finger, and part of the ring finger. Some medical conditions such as diabetes, thyroid dysfunction, rheumatoid arthritis and high blood pressure can result in Carpel Tunnel Syndrome but the condition can be made worse by any movement that overextends your wrists repeatedly such as when using a keyboard and mouse or playing the piano. Exposure to vibrations such as when using hand tools can also contribute to the swelling and compression of the median nerve. Typical symptoms are:
- Numb hands
- Aches and pains in your fingers, hands or arms
- Tingling in your fingers, hands or arms
- A weak thumb or difficulty gripping
Repetitive Strain Injury and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are two of the most common causes of work-related sick leave and costs companies billions in absenteeism and health care.
