The Evoluent D is the latest vertical mouse. Its design was inspired by more than 18 years of experience and research.
The mouse reduces and prevents discomfort because it is held in a handshake position. This means the wrist bends less from side to side and the lower arm rotates less.
The Evoluent D is made from high-quality materials to create a premium look and feel. Furthermore, this mouse has a very short acclimatisation time.
Lastly, the Evoluent D Wired is available in two versions, so there is a perfect model for almost all hand sizes. The mouse is only suitable for right-handed users.
The small model fits hands up to 178 mm long from the top of the middle finger to the edge of the wrist.
The medium model fits hands from 178 mm to 198 mm long from the top of the middle finger to the edge of the wrist.
The “handshake” position of this vertical mouse ensures that your wrist bends less from side to side, which means your lower arm rotates inwards less (Schmid et al., 2015). As a result, there is less muscle activity in the lower arm than when using a standard mouse (Quemelo & Vieira, 2013).
Research shows that using a vertical mouse allows users to heal quicker from arm, wrist and hand injuries (Aarås et al., 2001).
We have previous reviewed mice from Bakker Elkhuizen in this similar handshake format, however this is the latest version and is extremely slick.
It comes with a nice long wire which is great, as I’ve seen some that limit your position on the desk, but this is in the right zone for length.
Well built, nice smooth finish that feels rather luxurious, buttons click firmly but not too noisy, they even have two models to fit any hand size.
I personally need the larger one as I have rather big hands but the smaller verison is available for those with daintier extremities.
What can I say? It’s a mouse, it’s comfortable, it’s sensitive and leaves me without any of my typical wrist joint issues that a normal mouse does after a long days work.
Looks good, works great and from a very reputable company.
If you are in the market for a handshake style mouse, this is the one to aim for.
