As a computer science student during the school year, full time programmer in the summers, and general home PC user, I spend a lot of time in front of computers. Wrist pain and RSI were always fears of mine, but have recently become more of a reality. I have tried several alternatives, and was intrigued by the unique idea of ergomotion.
The concept of ergomotion is simple: all other devices seek to provide the perfect position for computing, but what if there is no perfect position? Ergomotion contends, for example, that there is likely a different optimal position depending on where you are holding your mouse in relation to your body. Even further, the idea behind ergomotion is that, no matter how comfortable your static posture mouse may be, if you hold your wrist in the same position all day it will still suffer repetitive strain.
Smartfish claims to have developed ergomotion through cooperation with medical professionals, as well as a few investors like Maxell. But, has Smartfish truly made a breakthrough in ergonomics? Continue on as we put ergomotion to the test.
