At first glance, it is hard to understand that there’s something wrong with the humble, useful mouse sitting on your desk. Yet, this one peripheral could be causing your arm to stay in unnatural positions for long stretches of time, causing you long term health damage. Ergonomic mice avoid this by letting your arm be in a more natural position when using them. Other characteristics of ergonomic mice include easy to reach button placement, contours that complement the natural curves of the human hand, and resting pads for fingers that avoid friction between the mouse pad and your skin. Hence, using an ergonomic mouse is not only more comfortable but it also helps reduce possible health complications that occur over long term use of such devices. Here are some options available on Amazon to choose from, selected based on their combination of specs and features.

Lenovo 600 Wireless Media Mouse

The thumb rest on the Lenovo 600 wireless media mouse aims to provide all-day usage comfort to your thumb and wrist, which can be crucial in avoiding pain. The mouse allows on-the-fly switching between 1000, 1600 and 2400 DPI. Choosing higher DPIs can also help you move the mouse just as much as you're comfortable with. To provide a certain amount of flexibility and customisation, the mouse comes with six buttons on the build. In fact, there are dedicated volume control buttons for media connectivity. You can also adjust the speed of scrolling with the scroll wheel.

Redragon NOTHOSAUR M606

While the Nothosaur M606 might feel like a gaming mouse (and no doubt it certainly is), it’s design features quite a few ergonomic elements that make it a comfortable mouse to use. The model comes with grooves on either side to accommodate all your fingers, which gives them a place to rest instead of just latching on to the mouse. The Nothosaur M606 comes with six buttons and four levels of DPI adjustment, which makes it able to modify its performance to suit your style. To add to the aesthetics of your setup, it can be switched between seven different backlit colours. The braided cable adds to the durability of the device as well.

Logitech MX Master 2S

Powered by the Logitech Options software, the Logitech MX Master 2S can be seamlessly used between multiple systems, and even copy-paste files between them. The 4000-DPI sensor used on the mouse has been designed to track well on any surface, even glass. To charge it, just plug it into your system with a micro-USB cable. It ensures a day’s worth of power is ready in just three minutes and promises to last over 70 days on a full charge. The mouse also helps with efficient scrolling by switching between click-to-click and hyper-fast scroll dynamically, and also providing the option to scroll sideways with a thumbwheel.

BenQ Zowie EC 1 

Well-known as an esports gaming mouse, the BenQ Zowie EC 1 also features a lot of ergonomic design elements in its build. With extra attention to detail, the design has multiple small curvatures and contours which combine to ensure the best experience for your hand. The mouse also aims for the right liftoff distance, which helps you make quick swipes without having to move your wrist more than necessary. With a Zowie-tuned 3360 sensor, the model also helps you aim and point accurately with improved tracking. The adjustable report rate and DPI switches are located at the bottom of the mouse to provide customisable use without risking accidental presses during gameplay or usage.
