Why round is better for your hand by Dr. Sebastian Ruggeri, MD, F.A.A.O.S.

Dr. Sebastian Ruggeri, M.D., F.A.A.O.S., a member of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, released his expert opinion about the medical benefits of Sports Mouse™ sphere-shape computer mouse design versus the traditional computer mouse design.

“We were thrilled when we read the report! It validates what we believed from day one,” said Nick Pajic, Founder & CEO of Sports Mouse, LLC, based in Phoenix, Arizona. Statement by Dr. Sebastian B. Ruggeri, MD.

"The sports mouse fits the palm and fingers of the hand much better than a traditional mouse. It causes much less stress on the fingers, allowing more repetitive use of the hand without causing tendonitis or neuritis. Generally it is important that when the fingers are used the wrist should remain in extension to avoid pressure of the tendons as well as the flexor retinaculum onto the median nerve in the carpal canal. This device [Sports Mouse] accomplishes that much better than a typical mouse. If the wrist and fingers are in flexion at the same time the flexor tendons tend to bowstring at the carpal canal putting pressure on the median nerve and irritating the nerve itself causing carpal tunnel symptoms. When using the sports mouse the wrist is never in a flexed position and the tendons will never bowstring at the wrist."
