An infrared, heated mouse — a warm mouse — is available for computer users to keep the mouse hand muscles relaxed and stress free. If you spend several hours per day using the computer, it’s wise to use infrared heat as an alternative source of hand therapy to keep computer hand muscles relaxed and free of tension and stress.
According to the PC World Forum archives, the average computer user spends 7-10 hours per day using the computer. Between work, home and play, that’s a high risk for Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) and Cumulative Trauma Disorder (CTD). Not to mention, an array of other hand-related injuries like tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.
The endless number of mouse clicks alone is known to create serious computer-related hand injuries. Plus, the gently pounding of keys on the keyboard adds to the cumulative trauma our computer hands deal with on a daily basis. Thanks to infrared heat, we can use the computer in a healthy manner to help us prevent the onset of serious hand injury.
Hand therapists agree the use of the computer is on the rise and so are computer-related hand injuries. So, it’s time we take a proactive approach and make the computer work for us, not harm us.
Infrared heat has been around for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. It is used in medical facilities and by massage therapists to relax muscles. Now, computer users can benefit from the powerful positive effects of infrared heat. The heated computer mouse plugs into the USB port and within a few minutes delivers a steady flow of deep healing infrared heat to the mouse hand.
A cold mouse hand can be an annoying problem preventing a person from using the computer. Relief is achieved using a heated mouse.
A test was performed with a person who suffers with hand arthritis. After 30 minutes of infrared, heated computer mouse use daily for one week, the person was able to use the computer for longer hours pain free.
Before the use of the warm mouse, the person’s computer use was limited, and the mouse hand pain was intense. A cold mouse hand with arthritis causes the hand to cramp and the fingers to become numb. With the aid of a warm mouse, the mouse hand became warm, muscles relaxed and tension was gone.
The heated computer mouse is safe for people and the computer. It uses a low 5v USB carbon fiber heating element. The carbon fiber creates the infrared heat. When purchasing a warm mouse, make sure it is made with a carbon fiber.
Ergonomic shape is also important and helps the hand’s posture remain in proper position using the warm mouse. Infrared heat penetrates deep through the skin’s layers to the muscle tissue. Using an USB ergonomic heated mouse will help prevent computer related hand injuries and provide a soothing source of hand therapy every time the computer is used.
