Rockstick 2 Ergonomic Laser Mouse
Born to relieve Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Hand is stronger than finger, so it can be clicked with a hand instead of finger.
Both hands can be benefited if they share work loads, so it is ambidextrous
The relationship between finger clicking and carpal tunnel stress measured by Ergometer.
Why mousing leads to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? (also called Repetitive Strain Injury)?
Most conventional mice force the hand, wrist, and forearm to be twisted away from the natural and relaxed position. This requires constant strain applied to the hand, wrist, and forearm in order to maintain the position. The unavoidable twisting is a strain on the related muscles, tendons, and nerves.
All conventional mice and most ergonomic mice require constant finger clicking that results in continual strain on the related muscles and tendons. This repetitive strain on the hand and fingers eventually leads to inflammation and swelling of the flexor tendons. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when swollen flexor tendons compress the median nerve, which runs from the arm to the hand through a space in the wrist called the carpal tunnel found under the transverse carpal ligament.
Users have to keep gripping most conventional mice to move and control the cursor, long time stress from gripping leads to strain on hand.
For all conventional mice, user's hand keeps palm down position. The downside of wrist has to bear the weight of hand and contact the desk surface all the time during usage. The pressure on the wrist will press the transverse carpal ligament and reduce the space for medium nerve.
For all conventional mice, some fingers of user's hand especially fingers excuting left clicking and right clicking have to prepare to click all the time before next clicking. So these fingers can't get relaxed all the time.
Most of us don’t take frequent or sufficient breaks when using a computer for an extended period of time. Especially when using a conventional mouse, the hand tends to stay in an unnatural position the entire time, even when not operating the mouse.
The concave depression on the thumb side of the mouse combined with the downward slope towards the mouse towards the fifth finger positions the hand at a 60° angle off the horizontal, which is a more natural position for your wrist and forearm.
The unique design of the Rockstick mouse allows users to click by utilizing the strength of the entire hand instead of fingers alone.The repetitive strain on fingers eventually leads to inflammation and swelling of the finger flexor tendons. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when swollen finger flexor tendons compress the median nerve, which runs from the arm to the hand through a space in the wrist called the carpal tunnel found under the transverse carpal ligament.
The slanted semi-fist shape of the handle design allows gravitational force on the hand to be employed to provide the majority of the control required to precisely move the mouse; The need to grip the mouse which is one cause of hand fatigue is largely reduced.
The Ergo-Grip design with detachable ledge keeps the underside of the little finger and palm off the surface of the desk. Also the downside of wrist doesn't press the desk surface anymore.
The unique design of the Rockstick mouse allows users to rest fingers on the handle without preparation to click, all fingers remain relaxed and supported at all times.
The ambidextrous design of the Rockstick 2 mouse allows users to operate by either the right or left hand. This feature enables users to work balance throughout the day by distributing the repetitive actions of mousing to both hands, thereby providing rest periods for both hands.

Make sure the Rockstick Mouse is plugged into the correct port.
Make sure to reboot your computer after you install the mouse driver.
A reflective surface may cause cursor drift. Put the Rockstick Mouse on a non-reflective mouse pad.
C-ursor jumps or the Rockstick Mouse isn’t moving smoothly
Check the bottom of the Rockstick Mouse to see if there’s dirt on the underside of the mouse base. Make sure the optical sensor is not blocked and the feet on the bottom side are clean.
The wireless version will sleep after a few minutes without usage to save battery power. Just click any button to wake it up.
First, turn off the power switch under the mouse (Push the power button from ON to OFF), then turn it on (Push the power button from OFF to ON); Second, push the switch under the mouse from R to L.
When you are not using the scrolling wheel, allow your thumb to rest in a relaxed position. A relaxed position for the thumb usually means that it is not on the top surface of the mouse. Frequent breaks are recommended during long periods of computer usage.
Just take off the finger ledge, and replace it with another according part, you can get utmost fingertip control.
Make sure you hold the Rockstick Mouse in the correct position (you will encounter the same problem with any mouse if you don’t keep it at the right angle).
