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 […]

Five Free Ergonomics Apps for Android

five free android ergonomic apps

The Google Play store has a sparse collection of ergonomic apps. To be frank, none of these apps blew us away. In a nutshell most of the apps we found were ergonomic tip apps. A couple were timers and measurement calculators. Some were in foreign languages. Your mileage may vary with these apps. We don’t […]

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.

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.”

Mycestro Gesture Mouse Review

Some time ago, I reviewed a meteoric gesture device called the Ion Wireless Air Mouse. I found it an interesting toy, but inaccurate and hard to use for real work. While the Ion appears to have gone away for good, there’s a new kid on the block of gesture-based pointing devices. It’s called the Mycestro. […]

Penclic Desktop Review – Mouse, Keyboard, And NiceTouch

If you spend much time following ergonomics on Twitter (what, you don’t?) it’s hard to miss the presence of Penclic. This European manufacturer makes, and heavily promotes, a mouse that looks like a pen stuck to its inkwell. As you may recall, I’ve reviewed that mouse before. There’s a new version now, which purports to […]
