Grabby Mouse / computer mouse

Grabby Mouse
Grabby Mouse

Progressive aching and stiff wrist from extended computer usage expose two main design flaws in current mouse technology: a lack of resting place for right most fingers and the painful abrasion between one’s wrist and the table surface from day-to-day use.

The new design builds around human hand movements and changes the mouse into a natural extension of one’s hand. Specifically, the new design will change the rotation of the mouse for a better fit under the hand and better gripe with more ergonomic movements. Also, an extended rest for wrist is integrated into the new design which will greatly reduce overall fatigue.
