Reduces work load for both hands:The ambidextrous design of the Rockstick 2 mouse allows users to operate by either the right or left hand. This feature enables users to work balance throughout the day by distributing the repetitive actions of mousing to both hands, thereby providing rest periods for both hands.
Reduces Pain and Strain on Fingers due to Clicking:The unique design of the Rockstick mouse allows users to click by utilizing the strength of the entire hand instead of fingers alone.The repetitive strain on fingers eventually leads to inflammation and swelling of the finger flexor tendons. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when swollen finger flexor tendons compress the median nerve, which runs from the arm to the hand through a space in the wrist called the carpal tunnel found under the transverse carpal ligament.
Eliminates Finger Hovering and Lifting: The unique design of the Rockstick mouse allows users to rest fingers on the handle without preparation to click, all fingers remain relaxed and supported at all times.
Reduces Wrist and forearm 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 60° angle off the horizontal, which is a more natural position for your wrist and forearm.
Reduces Grip Requirements:The slanted semi-fist shape of the handle design allows gravitational force on the hand to be employed to provide the majority of the control required to precisely move the mouse; The need to grip the mouse which is one cause of hand fatigue is largely reduced.
Reduces friction between little Finger and Desk Surface: The Ergo-Grip design with detachable ledge keeps the underside of the little finger and palm off the surface of the desk.
Increases Pointer Precision with all above Ergonomic Benefits:The Precision Grip design offers the utmost precision in fingertip control. Also the laser pointer control is as accurate as any other high-quality performance mouse with on-mouse adjustable DPI controls. There is no sacrificing of work efficiency when enjoying the ergonomic comfort of the Rockstick 2 mouse.

The Rockstick Mouse meets recommendations from U.C. Berkeley for an alternative mouse to alleviate hand pain.
How It Works ?
The hand wraps around the upward handle rising from the base and tilts it to left or right to make the left or right clicking easily. So the mouse clicking is performed by the entire hand instead of much weaker fingers.The laser sensor is situated at the bottom of the base and the hand moves the whole mouse to position the cursor like conventional mice.
Note:There are a little bit differences between medium and large size of Rockstick 2 mouse - There is attachable little finger supporter for all medium sizes, but the little finger supporter is fixed for all large sizes. We recommend you choose the medium size if you want ultra precise control for some drawing softwares like AUTOCAD, PRO-E... Actually the medium size can fit most people if you don't want to hold it tight even you have a lage hand.
