A ‘normal’ computer mouse is an important part of any CAD workstation. It is light, compact and easy to operate. However, it poses one major disadvantage from an ergonomic point of view, in that you always have to operate it using the same hand. When a mouse is used intensively with repetitive patterns of movement, this can result in pain and functional impairments, also known as RSI syndrome or ‘mouse arm’.
Using a 3D mouse can prevent these symptoms, while making your CAD workflow considerably more efficient and healthier. This was proven by an experiment carried out by the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering (IAO).
