When I was asked to try a Smartfish Technologies Whirl Laser Mouse, I had been suffering for quite some time from tingling and numbness after blogging off and on all day. I was more than eager to try an ergonomic product that claimed to be cutting edge and unique.
I have been using the mouse for a little over a month now. At first, I had a slight problem getting used to its size. I use a laptop, and my old mouse was smaller in size. After a day or so, I noticed the Smartfish mouse fit my hand better… in a more natural position. The tilting was something that took a few more days to get accustomed to. I was “making” myself be aware of the motion my hand would take to perform certain tasks because they were almost second nature. One thing I noticed was how much less movement my wrist and arm had to do to scroll down a page. The combination of tilting the mouse forward while dragging the page downward did almost all the work.
The more I use the mouse, the less I notice “my using it”. It allows for more natural movement of the hand and arm and my tingling and numbness has decreased measurably.
My husband asked me the other day if I missed my old mouse. I raised my eyebrows at him, gave him a quick “You can’t have my mouse” stare and answered “NOPE!”.
