The ergonomic mouses

The ergonomic mouses have really weird and unusual shapes, but they are a worthy ally for the health of your hands too. The median nerve so isn’t compromised anymore and we avoid problems like the carpal tunnel disease.

There are many shapes of them: for example the classic ones have a handgrip very similar to the traditional ones even if it’s larger and more confortable.
