A mouse is for life, not just for Christmas


24 November 2011

With Christmas around the corner are you finding yourself stuck for gift ideas?  Every year it’s the same story - how to find a useful, original gift that won’t get left under the tree.

For the person in your life who has everything, the Ergonomic Wireless Optical Mouse from 3M might just surprise them.

Ideal for the home or work office, it has been clinically proven to reduce muscle strain, with its ergonomic design reducing physical discomfort caused by long periods spent in front of a computer.

Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is a result of poor posture and uninterrupted time using a mouse and keyboard.  Symptoms include aches, numbness and tingling muscles that if ignored can lead to permanent disability.

However, with a correctly laid out work station and proper equipment like the the Ergonomic Wireless Optical Mouse, RSI is 100 per cent preventable.

The product is designed like a joystick, keeping arms and shoulders in a more relaxed and neutral position to that of an ordinary mouse.  It is held like an old fashioned gaming control and pushed around, tracking movement optically.

The vertical ergonomic grip of the joystick is unique to the 3M design, encouraging the wrist to remain locked and reducing nerve pressure.

With many of us using a computer for long periods without breaks, RSI is something that can affect us all, making the Ergonomic Wireless Optical Mouse from 3M a perfect Christmas gift for anyone who uses a computer for work or pleasure.

A perfect stocking filler or part of a fabulous, office stationery set - give someone you love a gift they’ll use at Christmas and beyond.

Available from £45 at www.3Mselect.co.uk and other online retailers.
