New ergonomically designed mice offered by CSU Ergonomics

September 30, 2009

Frequent mouse use while working at a computer may lead to pain, discomfort and even injury. CSU Ergonomics offers free trials of several different styles of ergonomic mice, designed specifically to reduce the risk of pain or injury.

  • Wrist pain?
  • Still tied to your computer by your mouse?
  • Try one of the new ergonomically designed mice offered by CSU Ergonomics!

Be proactive to your health. Frequent mouse use while working at a computer may lead to pain, discomfort and even injury. Believe it or not, there is a “wrong” way to use a mouse which may increase these risks. If you have a standard mouse, it may be time to upgrade.

Ergonomic mice available to try

CSU Ergonomics offers free trials of several different styles of ergonomic mice, designed specifically to reduce the risk of pain or injury. If you feel uncomfortable with your mouse, or just want to try something different, call EHS today.

In order to find out which mouse best suits your needs, a full office Ergonomic Evaluation must be performed. These evaluations are free of charge to all faculty and staff of CSU. Not only will EHS evaluate your mouse, but your chair, workstation and other elements will also be evaluated. This evaluation can reduce the risk of pain or injury, and may even increase your productivity.

Remember, just because your mouse works, doesn’t mean it works for you.

Free trials on keyboards, etc.

EHS also offers free trials on keyboards, document holders and other office equipment specifically designed with your comfort in mind.

To set up an ergonomic evaluation and try one of the new ergonomically designed mice, call Frank Gonzales at (970) 491-2724 or e-mail frank.gonzales@colostate.edu to set up an appointment.
