Arthritis effects a surprising many today with over 60% of the afflicted being over 65. This leaves a significant number below this age. In a world so wrapped up in technology, physical accessibility to computers and the internet may not be the first thing to come to mind in regards to problems needing solutions. However, in practice it has become just that. In reality, the internet has become more or less a requirement to being connected to society. With this societal shift, accommodations need to catch up, and quickly. Joint pains and injuries near the wrists, hands, and even shoulders including arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome cause a significant barrier for many.
One device that may be part of the solution is the Anker Ergonomic Optical Mouse. This mouse is vertical in order to assist with excessive wrist pain allowing for ease of use to those finding it difficult to use the traditional mouse. The Anker Ergonomic Optical Mouse has been given high reviews, and offers a stylish solution to wrist and forearm pain through its ergonomic design allowing for less stress from required motions. This mouse is an affordable option that may reduce pain in the hands, wrists, and forearms and is a step in the right direction.
Not only is the product line a good sign, but its potential in the industry as a whole could be the strongest upside and there will likely be further innovations for potential remedies to reduce pain.
