Ergonomic Design for A Computer Mouse
Can Change How You Work & Live
I’ve been using a new mouse in my blogging life for the past two weeks – PENCLIC. Designed to reduce tension in arms and shoulders and keep our finger muscles more relaxed during work.
Here’s what appreciate about this nifty pen after working with it enough time to discover what works and what needs improvement.
A PENCLIC Mouse is the ergonomic computer mouse that feels and moves like a pen.
#1 Love the Convenience and Versatility of Wireless and USB Connectivity
It is awesome to have this option. Obviously, wireless is the option we all choose. However, sometimes, being in a situation without wireless connection would welcome a wire-to-computer connection.
A nifty retractable USB cord will connect a PENCLIC mouse to the computer. All the essentials for the mouse are kept in a felt pouch which can travel with you anywhere to allow all the mouse essentials to be located on the spot.
#2 Comfortable Grip For A Relaxed Working Position
I enjoyed a familiar convenient grip of holding a pen in my fingers. The diameter, the glide, the position of the the click buttons worked just fine. It took me some adjustment to learn which click corresponds with what action on the screen. But it’s a learning curve that we are willing to accept when test driving a new device.
The pen grip provides a relaxed working position to help secure strength and make your output more efficient.
#3 Convenient Click Buttons
There’s a total of 5 buttons on the PENCLIC mouse. I found myself to be using only three of them really frequently. Basic operations like click-through and highlighting are done from the same button panel. The multiple operations like copy, paste, save, and a ton of others are made available by clicking a third button which allows for a drop-down screen. It is very much compatible to any other regular mouse function.
This mouse operates on almost any surface without any pad. I tried to glide it across my mouse pad and then without it and found it the same quality.
What I find it tremendously inconvenient is the positioning of the scroll wheel. I really don’t know why it was designed to be positioned quite away from the pen itself. It is awkward to toggle between the pen with all the buttons on it and the scrolling wheel which is located on a small panel where the PENCLIC is mounted. This feature makes it difficult and time-consuming to switch from scrolling wheel to pen and back.
Yes, PENCLIC has an awesome ergonomic design and ease of gliding across the desk surface. The only thing that makes it less attractive is the position of a scroll wheel. You gotta try it to see if you really would like to incorporate this interesting mouse pen into your daily life.
