carpal tunnel syndrome

What causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that develops if the median nerve is compressed on the palm side of the wrist. This is seen often in people who use computer mice frequently as resting the hand flat on a desk will cause median nerve compression. It may result in a numb or tingling sensation, reduced function in the index or middle finger, or reduced strength and shrinkage in the thumb.

Symptoms:

  • Numbness in the thumb and fingers
  • Tingling, or a “shock” sensation in the thumb and fingers
  • Pain in the hand through the forearm
  • Reduced strength in hand, making it harder to hold things or work with small objects

What We Recommend:

RollerMouse – Designed to be used by the entire arm, and allowing for posture variance, the RollerMouse is the ultimate solution to reduce compression on the median nerve and combat the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel
Unimouse – With a completely adjustable body that keeps your wrists from resting flat on the desk, the Unimouse is a great option for those whose jobs focus on precise, mouse-intensive work.
