Professional Occupational Therapist

Over a decade ago, I experienced RSI and extreme pain which was probably as a result of intensive computer and mouse work. As an Occupational Therapist I immediately started looking at the activity and breaking it down to understand what could have caused the problems. The key thing that struck me was that using a standard mouse on the right hand of the keyboard meant that I was always working out of alignment, stretching my arm out and yes, doing those things we probably all do e.g. not taking frequent breaks and holding the mouse in static holds for too long whilst working intensively on numerous database systems which required a lot of mouse clicking.

I was introduced to the Contour Rollermouse Classic. One thing I’d say is that any new change when you’re in pain takes a while to adjust to and there is also the need to train our brain in to using things differently. Being honest, I didn’t think it was going to work in the first week or two. I’m writing this as I’d say if you’re in the same position – stick with it!

The pain improved. The rollermouse has been a bit of a saviour allowing me to work in alignment but also reduce some of the clicking with the double click button. I love the rollerbar which has made a huge difference.

Fast forward and I think I’ve probably used the Rollermouse for about 14 years without any recurrence of the RSI and it feels innately part of my set up however all things come to the end of their life and it was time to replace my friend that has served me well.

I am now using a new model with new features. Just like before, I found it hard to adapt in the first week or so as I needed to train my brain and also consider the keyboard profile to get a good match that worked for me but I wouldn’t be without it.

In summary, I think the Rollermouse has saved me from years of pain and enabled me to carry on managing my job and I do a lot of computer work. If you’re in a similar position, you’ll know just what a difference this makes. My advice is, don’t wait until you’re in pain. I’d think about this preventatively so you never reach that point.

The RollerMouse Red saved my wrist and probably my job. My RSI’s may prevent my from using a mouse, but with the RollerMouse Red I can still get in a full day’s work behind the keyboard. I am 100% convinced it’s the only thing standing between me and some expensive surgery, and I can’t recommend it highly enough.

I’ve been using the RollerMouse Red Plus for a few months and it has done wonders for my right shoulder pain! As you can see from the photo I’ve enclosed, I’ve been using it with a keyboard that has a large gap between the space bar and the edge of the keyboard, and this means I still have to reach from the roller bar to my keyboard. With the new Balance keyboard I feel like my set up will be perfect. I’m an RN working in an orthopaedic clinic and see a lot of patients with shoulder, elbow, and wrist problems, and it seems like using your products is a really good way to try to prevent such problems before they start.

The RollerMouse Free2 has saved my hands from this torture! I am a GIS specialist and use my mouse all the time often for digitizing that requires a lot of clicking. With a conventional mouse, my hand would almost get stuck in a cramped position. It was kind of like when swimming and your toes get cramped and you have to pull them apart with your hands to get them unstuck! The RollerMouse Free2 has saved my hands from this torture! In fact, because of the way it is designed, I can very easily use either hand for clicking and moving the cursor around on my screen – and I’m not ambidextrous! It even allows me to split the mouse movements between both hands, using two hands at the same time. I love my RollerMouse so much, I have encouraged my coworkers to borrow it for a while. All that have tried it really love it.
