Smartfish ErgoMotion™ Mouse & Keyboard: It's The Motion, Stupid!

Stupid.  That's what you say to yourself when you read about Smartfish's patented ErgoMotion technology. Then you say, 'Of course! It's so obvious that for designs to be really ergonomic, they have to move with your body.

Take, for example, the computer mouse and keyboard.  What's commonly known as an 'ergonomic' mouse, is made with a comfortable, natural shape for your hand.  But it is only comfortable for your hand and wrist when they resting on the mouse in that position; it does not offer range of motion.

Smartfish Technology's Whirl Laser Mouse with Anti-Gravity Comfort Pivot rocks and rolls with your hand and wrist, so they don't have to be in one position to use the mouse efficiently, and still remain comfortable. The Whirl will conform to your natural motion, thereby reducing repetitive stress injuries.

The ErgoMotion Mouse was introduced early last year, and the ErgoMotion Engage Keyboard  with anti-fatigue comfort motion was one of the celebrated newcomers at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2010 that just ended.

It's not just the shape of the keyboard, which you have seen in many others, but the range of movement of the keyboard which allow your wrists, hands, and fingers to relax, while the keyboard responds to your subtle motions.

Dr. Jack Atzman, inventor and CEO of Smartfish Technologies, and his design staff, discuss the development of the ErgoMotion Keyboard in the following short video...

 

 

The concepts behind the inventions of the ErgoMotion Mouse and Keyboard make sense.  Having a stationery keyboard and mouse certainly doesn't obviate the need for wrist supports when I work.  How about you?

Smartfish's ErgoMotion Mouse and ErgoMotion Keyboard are available from Amazon.com, where you can also read customer reviews.
