The Penguin Vertical Mouse is innovatively created in such a way that it works for either left-handed or right-handed users. Its upright stance is ergonomically designed to maximize comfort and ease, while technically it is well advanced in accuracy and speed. When using this mouse, one of the first things noticed is the fact that your hand and fingers remain relaxed at all times. This is because the bulk of the work—due to the vertical design and symmetrical base—is being performed by the bigger muscles of the arm and shoulder. This seemingly simple adjustment of changing the typical mouse use from horizontal to vertical positions is exactly what makes the Penguin stand apart: it is able to minimize strain on weaker muscles and tendons, and therefore reduce chronic wrist pain and fatigue. What works so well about this mouse is the fact that it addresses the user as much as it does performance. In the past, computer component design was primarily based on performance—speed mattered, making a comfortable fit second place. Now, Penguin has made a mouse that is both high performing and ergonomic, keeping those chronic issues at bay when it comes to clicking away at your computer.

 

Many have tried to produce a design as well thought out as the Penguin, but none have yet to contend. For instance, Penclic, a recent high seller, has done well at making a mouse that is comfortable and quick…well, kind of. At first the design is nice. It fits well, drags with speed. But after further use, the hand positioning becomes uncomfortable, and its superfluous amount of buttons start to cause confusion. This actually brings up another bonus to the Penguin mouse: it comes in three different sizes, allowing the perfect fit for every user.

 

Penguin has its own ambidextrous mouse that is taking the market by storm. If you are a common computer user—who isn’t these days?—then this mouse a must for you.
