Goldtouch Semi-Vertical Mouse Review

The Goldtouch Semi-Vertical Mouse we’re looking at today is not to be confused with the Goldtouch Comfort Mouse, which I reviewed a few years ago. This new offering from Key Ovation is more nearly vertical than the old Comfort Mouse, has more buttons, and adds a removable palm rest. Let’s take a look.

Is the Swiftpoint GT Mobile Mouse the Best Mobile Mouse Ever?

Swiftpoint GT Mouse

Swiftpoint GT Mouse combines intuitive touch gestures with the precision and convenience of a mouse. Some have proclaimed the Swiftpoint GT to be the best mobile mouse available. While I can’t speak to that, I’ll say this much: If I were a maker of mobile mice, I wouldn’t want to try to compete with it […]

Uprise Standing Desk Review

Years and years ago, when I had more time to work than money for office furniture, my first desk was a cheap little thing about the size of my lap. At that time I was just learning about ergonomics, and having more than a little trouble figuring out exactly how high my work surface should […]

Evoluent Vertical Mouse C Review

It’s been six years since I first reviewed the Evoluent vertical mouse. Since then the Evoluent has undergone some expected generational revisions, but its core design principle of the “natural” handshake position for mousing remains the same. I recently got the opportunity to acquire a latest-gen Evoluent vertical mouse, called the VerticalMouse C, and I’ve […]

Contour Balance Keyboard Review

One minor drawback to my favorite pointing device, the Contour RollerMouse Red, is that it tends to limit your choice of keyboards. A Goldtouch, for example, works poorly with a RollerMouse due to its shape. So does a Microsoft Sculpt, or pretty much anything else with an integrated palm rest. Even plain old straight keyboards […]

Newtral2 Mouse Review

The Newtral2 ergonomic mouse is, in a sense, several mice in one. Though it has no moving parts for adjustment, this mouse comes with a number of magnetic interchangeable pieces that give it different shapes and features. It’s an innovative design, relatively affordable, and overall worth checking out.

Mogo Portable Standing Chair Review

In the past few years, there’s been a lot of ballyhoo about the benefits of working while standing – or even while walking on the treadmill, depending on your level of determination (and coordination). There is much to be said for this strategy. Studies show that sitting down all the time is pretty unhealthy in […]

Don’t Look at it – Tapit: An Interview with Inventor Rubi Mazaki Tsaig

What if you could use your smartphone for basic tasks without looking at it? That’s the question Rubi Mazaki Tsaig asked two years ago. The answer developed into what is now being Kickstarted as the Tapit keyboard case. The inventor has agreed to answer a few questions on All Things Ergo, so I’ll let him explain […]

New: The Great Big Guide to Ergonomic Mice

No review today, but I thought I’d let everybody know about a brand-new resource on All Things Ergo. To match our popular Great Big Guide to Ergonomic Keyboards, we’ve published The Great Big Guide to Ergonomic Mice! Trackballs, rollers, and alternative devices are also covered. It’s pretty extensive, so grab two cups of coffee and check it out.

Gelepad, The Handiest Ergonomic Thingamabob You’ve Never Heard Of

This isn’t going to be much of a review, because the product under discussion is just too simple and neat to require much explanation. It’s called the Gelepad (say “jelly-pad”), and it’s a handily-sticky, lovably-squishy pad you can use to soften up the pressure points in your life. (And no, before you ask, it will […]

Matias Ergo Pro Keyboard Review

It’s here. The long-anticipated Matias Ergo Pro, the fulfillment of every ergonomic dream and the highest ideal of all keyboards everywhere. Okay, maybe I exaggerate a bit. Let me just put it this way: as Alan Ladd said in a certain well-known Western, “It’s as good as any, and better than most.”
