Eliminating Muscle Strain
Bakker Elkhuizen are synonymous with creating office products that reduce the stressful toll that our daily jobs and even home life can bestow upon us.
This is not your average mouse.
The HANDSHAKE mouse has been crafted to reduce the strain that is created when using a standard mouse, due to the vertical orientation, you use less muscles to do your tasks. This reduces fatigue and is overall healthier.
As for actual use, it’s relatively quick to adjust to, your hand will feel unnaturally spaced for the first few hours, but it’s just you adjusting your muscles to the new position.
After a couple of hours, I didn’t give it a second thought, my hand moves effortlessly and after using it for a solid week, I did notice my arms weren’t as tensed at the end of the day.
So from my experience it definitely lives up to the claims!
It glides easily, the ergonomics are great, you have a scroll wheel, two buttons and can switch between 400/1600/3200DPI, which covers 99% of the market, everything you need to do the job.
One thing I do have to say is, it’s not for the large handed of us out there, it’s aimed towards small — medium hands, but they do have another model which caters to the larger variety no problem.
For office work or day to day computer work this is fantastic and I’d highly recommend, it’s a no frills ergonomic high quality peripheral!
