The mouse changes all the time. Perhaps not in such revolutionary ways that people take notice each and every time it happens, but it certainly happens. SmartFish has just released a new design on an old favorite, and they’re hoping that it’s bold and new enough that it will capture the attention of consumers out there. And, considering it’s the first to feature a patented swivel mechanism, they may just be on to something.
The SmartFish ErgoMotion mouse does exactly what the name implies. Featuring that patented swivel mechanism, the mouse is specifically designed to always promote a fluid motion of not only the mouse itself, but also the user’s wrist. As many people know that use the standard wireless or USB-tethered mouse on a daily basis, it can get pretty rough keeping your hand in the same rigid position for long periods of time. With the ErgoMotion mouse, you won’t have to worry about that, as the swivel mechanism will keep your wrist and hand in a comfortable position while you do what you need to do.
The mouse itself has both the left- and right-click buttons, and a four-way scroll wheel. There’s also a discreet wireless USB plug-in. The mouse itself is available right now from SmartFish’s site, and it’s perfectly capable of working on both your PC and Mac. It will run you a cool $49.95, but that’s a small price to pay for your comfort, right?
Englewood, NJ – August 25, 2010 – SmartFish Technologies is proud to announce the immediate availability of the ErgoMotion Mouse to consumers nationwide. This is the first laser mouse ever to feature a patented swivel mechanism that promotes a fluid movement, allowing the mouse to intuitively adapt to the user’s hand position. Smartfish’s award-winning ErgoMotion technology enables forward, backward and lateral wave-like movements for the wrist every time the mouse is in use. This helps to relieve discomfort from repetitive stress injuries related to extended computer usage.
“When using a static mouse, the hand, wrist and arm are confined to a fixed position that limits natural movements and forces robotic gestures which strains your tendons and ligaments causing pain and discomfort over time.” said Dr. Jack Atzmon, President and CEO of Smartfish Technologies. “The ErgoMotion Mouse adapts to your natural movements and provides the most unique and healthy computing experience to date.”
The ErgoMotion Mouse boasts a sleek design, and features both left and right click, four-way scroll wheel and a discreet wireless USB plug-in. The device is compatible with MACs and PCs, and features an ambidextrous design for both right and left-handed users. It’s is available now from www.getsmartfish.com for $49.95.
Smartfish Technologies was founded on a passion for healthier living, smart technology and true ergonomic innovation in an ever-growing electronic world. As a practicing chiropractor of 14 years, Smartfish president and CEO Dr. Jack Atzmon met with thousands of patients who continually complained of hand, wrist, shoulder and back pain. Through extensive knowledge of repetitive stress injury (RSI) – common forms known as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, he began to understand that a key contributor to these ailments came from the day-to-day use of computers – specifically, repetitive motion of computer peripheral use. Dr. Atzmon’s vision and breakthrough technology led him to form Smartfish Technologies and launch a line of computer peripherals based on the company’s ErgoMotion technologies, beginning with the ErgoMotion Mouse, to promote a healthy PC lifestyle for work and play.
