Mousebean Ergonomic Hand Rest

Mousebean Ergonomic Hand RestThe Mousebean Ergonomic Hand Rest is a rather cute little device that is attached to your mouse and operates as a sort of tag-along mousepad. When you move your mouse, the Mousebean moves along with it.

Here’s what the company has to say about the product:

The MouseBean Hand Rest is designed to provide support, protection and comfort when using a mouse. Following detailed research into the causes of mouse-induced wrist pain, the MouseBean Hand Rest tackles the problem by applying sound ergonomic principles, stylish product design and engineering.

Professional computer users have put the MouseBean Hand Rest through extensive trials and the device has been tested and endorsed by a consulting surgeon.

The MouseBean Hand Rest protects the delicate median nerve that runs through the carpal tunnel in the wrist. It does this by preventing the central part of the wrist from being pressed against a hard surface. The MouseBean Hand Rest supports the hand on the soft fleshy parts either side of the median nerve, and can help to prevent serious nerve damage.

The MouseBean Hand Rest allows the wrist to rotate into a comfortable position and can be used on either hand. The gently rounded base allows it to slide on and off the edge of a mousemat without snagging.

The company also notes that since the pads are made of a squishy gel-like material with a tactile surface, many of their customers use the product not only as a mousepad, but as a stress reliever. Interesting concept.

The MouseBean is available in a wide variety of color combinations to match your mouse, computer, office decor, or just your own whimsical sense of style.

  1. I’ve purchased Mousebean approx a year ago, I use it daily. Not sure if it helps. I still feel tension in my wrist while using it. I think that main problem is that bones are still twisted (see http://www.evoluent.com/twisted_silver.jpg) while using regular mouse, with or without MouseBean.

    Now I’m using AirObic Mouse (http://www.aerobicmouse.com/) for two days and it seems that works much better, I feel relief in my wrist.

    I will see how it works after couple of weeks.

  2. An additional ergonomic accessory which can help: PADandCLICK
