Smartfish ErgoMotion Laser Mouse-Review and Giveaway!!

I recently had the opportunity to review the ErgoMotion Laser Mouse from Smartfish Technologies, and I really enjoyed it. It has been a long time since I used a mouse, since I am always on my MacBook. I was impressed with the quality of the mouse when I opened the box. It has a very sleek and stylish look, yet seems very durable too. The little USB connector piece is stored in the bottom of the mouse...very handy, so it doesn't get lost when not in use! I was a little concerned because on my MacBook, all the USB ports are on the left side, but I am right-handed. I wasn't sure the mouse would work right, but it works great! It has very comfortable positioning, and I love the motion-base!! It really is more comfortable than any other mouse I have used.  My brother thought it was really neat, too-now I just have to keep it away from him :) Seriously, he saw the mouse next to my MacBook, and immediately tried it out. (Hmmm, maybe a gift idea?)




"ErgoMotion™ is built on the concept that movement is the key to healthier computing. The medical community has long supported movement to be beneficial to the human body, which promotes blood flow and decreases inflammation—inadequate blood circulation and inflammation are both considered key contributors to RSI. It was Smartfish’s founder, Dr. Jack Atzmon, who’s own experience with RSI lead him to question the effects ergonomic computer products had while he worked. Through Dr. Atzmon’s own research he challenged “fixed-position” products and their claimed benefits, and developed a theory that motion was the solution to true ergonomics.Smartfish partnered with New York’s Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) to study the affects motion would have on a user while they compute. It was the collaboration with HSS that helped develop ErgoMotion™ proving subtle, even incremental movement would increase blood flow and reduce inflammation eliminating the risks of RSI. By applying motion to products, ErgoMotion™ is redefining the future of ergonomics. It is the first technology to actually address the root causes of RSI, and empowering the user to compute healthier. Smartfish Whirl™ Desktop Laser Mouse and Engage™ Compact Keyboard are the first products to leverage the ErgoMotion™ technology.  The Whirl™ Mouse utilizes a patented motion-base that conforms to the user’s natural hand and wrist positions while they work. However, the Engage™ Keyboard creates a slightly different ErgoMotion™ experience by tracking the user’s work pattern and making incremental changes to itself so the user’s hands and wrists are never in a static position while typing.Smartfish’s computer peripherals are just the first of many applications of the ErgoMotion™ technology. ErgoMotion is a technology movement redefining what ergonomics should be, and revolutionizing the future of true comfort."
