The Contour Mouse Optical (CMO) is an orthopedically supportive mouse which comes in several sizes for both the left and right hands, largely eliminating the grip force which is prevalent on most conventional mice. This design features a 'hump' on the middle of the mouse which aligns with the hollow of the hand, supporting and aligning the hand in a similar manner to arch supports in a shoe. This also provides a clear indication of where to position the hand for maximum support, allowing gravity to do much of the work in controlling the mouse. The buttons are extra long and peak at the base of the button, allowing the user to generate clicks from the knuckle closest to the hand instead of the tip of the finger. The axis of the vertical scroll wheel is rotated 90°, eliminating the awkward traditional 'clawing' movement required to spin the wheel. 



This mouse currently comes in a Gun Metal silver satin-like finish, facilitating usage of the mouse in Mode 1 (gross movement) and Mode 2 (fine movement). Note: It has come to our attention that some users find that the new satin-like finish does not grip their hands in the same manner as previous finishes (White or Black), resulting in the hand sliding down and back into Mode 2 positioning. The Small Left model is currently only available in the original white model, with all other sizes available in the new silver color.

Ergonomic Benefits:

*Right-handed model pictured above

Reduces Pronation - The concave depression on the thumb side of the mouse combined with the downward slope towards the mouse towards the fifth finger positions the hand at a 17° angle off the horizontal, which is a more natural position for your hand.


Vastly Reduced Grip Requirements - The 'hump' on the top of the mouse in conjunction with the asymmetric design allows gravitational force on the hand to be employed to provide the majority of the control required to precisely move the mouse; there is no need to grip the mouse.


Reduces Pain and Force of Clicking - The tips of the fingers should hang over the end of the mouse slightly, which allows the user to click with the base of the first segment of the finger - meaning the user is not bending, hovering or lifting up the finger, resulting in approximately 1/10th of the muscles required to perform the clicking action. Because the fingers are not poised in preparation to click, the 'clicking' fingers remain relaxed, outstretched and supported at all times.


No Learning Curve - As the design and usage of the mouse are very similar to traditional mice, there is no learning curve or adaptation period required to become accustomed to this mouse.


Full Access to the Middle Mouse Button - Unlike many mice, the middle mouse button is fully accessible to provide macroscroll/autoscroll functionality.


Horizontally Aligned Vertical Scroll Wheel - The vertical scroll wheel is accessible on the side of the mouse, allowing the user to perform scrolling actions with the edge of their thumb without losing the orthopedic benefits of the mouse.


Elevated Palm Support - Pressure on the underside of the wrist is reduced by keeping it off the desk top. Wrist alignment is straighter and less likely to deviate laterally (i.e. twisting of the wrist). The hand is balanced in a neutral, tilted posture.
