SmartFish Announces Availability of ErgoMotion Mouse Breakthrough ergonomic peripheral rethinks traditional mouse design to promote a healthier computing experience 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. About SmartFish 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.
:D, while looking at this article i was thinking of a mouse that would move the pointer when you tilt the mouse forward,backwards or side to side :).
If i were to get this mouse i would have to learn to be comfortable with it first before it makes me comfortable...
>> i was thinking of a mouse that would move the pointer when you tilt the mouse forward,backwards or side to side
I wrote a daemon for the C64 that did that with an attached joystick, back before we had mice.
I think this mouse is stupid. Seriously, Here's why: The one thing this design does is allow you to keep your elbow out of horizontal alignment with the mouse, transferring all shoulder movement.
This means that, as you move the mouse closer to you and further away, you will compensate by constantly bending your wrist and angling the mouse in situations where you would normally move your elbow. That's the opposite of ergonomics - that's the path to repetitive strain injury.

Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
