What is Mouse Arm Syndrome (MAS)?

The term “Mouse Arm” is not a diagnosis but a popular collective name for many different ailments that affect neck, shoulders, arms and hands in intensive computer work. Not only is this an issue that causes pain, discomfort and stress, it can be tough to address if the proper equipment is not provided to the user.

How do you get Mouse Arm?

As the name implies, Mouse Arm relates to the use of the computer mouse and how overworking muscles with monotonous mouse movements can cause strain and pain. Sitting in front of a computer for long periods of time combined with the unnatural posture most computer mice force your hand to be in is a perfect recipe to leave yourself susceptible to Mouse Arm Syndrome.
