Logitech’s new ergonomic mouse is so revolutionary that at first glance it’s impossible to tell what it is.
The Swiss tech company unveiled the new device in Las Vegas this week – and for once a company’s promotional material actually understated the revolutionary qualities of a product.
The company described the Logitech MX Vertical as its “most advanced ergonomic mouse” that combines science-driven design with high performance. It is designed to reduce forearm strain and wrist pressure, while its 57-degree vertical angle is optimised for an ergonomic posture without compromising on productivity.
“We know that many computer users experience discomfort or pain in their hand, forearm and in their wrists,” said Delphine Donne-Crock, GM of creativity and productivity at Logitech. To address this, Logitech designed the tool in an innovative natural handshake position.
“The unique angle … reduces both wrist pressure and forearm strain.”
The ergonomic mouse is designed to fit a variety of hand shapes and sizes, while the textured rubber surface and thumb rest ensure a solid and natural grip.
The MX Vertical is priced at $99.99 and will go on sale in selected retail stores next month, with pre-orders already being taken by Logitech online.
After making its debut at the Las Vegas Ergo Expo which runs until Friday, the ergonomic mouse will be on display at the International Ergonomics Association Congress in Florence, Italy, from Sunday until August 30.
