For all of you who have a problem using the traditional computer mouse, here is a mouse that is designed specially for people suffering from Arthritis.
Called the Airo2bic (pronounced Aerobic) mouse, the basic design concept is not to use the muscles forward of your elbow. No need of clicking buttons -- and as the makers say, it is the only Ergonomically Functional Neutral mouse that does not require to be gripped and untwists the wrist. It is a 3-Button, scroll wheel mouse, USB "plug-n-play" so no software is usually required for basic operation.
The beauty is that it removes Static Posture, a working position that keeps muscles tensed, which is now associated with the development of impairment in computer mouse users and impedes their use by persons with disability. It supports Universally Assistive Technology which means that it allows those without disability to avoid using those muscles that can injure and enables many with hand dexterity disability, through injury, illness or as a consequence of aging, to work as effectively and productively as their colleagues, truly accessible technology.
