Smartfish, maker of the award winning ErgoMotion mouse, has just released a more travel-friendly version in the new Whirl Mini Notebook Laser Mouse. The Whirl Mini uses the same tech as the ErgoMotion, drastically reducing wrist and arm fatigue, by allowing the mouse to pivot and move along with the natural movement of your hand. In case you’re wondering, this technology is no gimmick; these mice were designed in conjunction with the country’s leading orthopedic surgeons, and offer a solution to the injuries caused by prolonged computer use. We just received our Smartfish ErgoMotion and will have a full report next week; until then, here’s some more info on the Whirl Mini…
Englewood, NJ – November 23, 2010 – SmartFish Technologies is proud to announce the launch of the Whirl™ Mini Notebook Laser Mouse, the gravity-defying travel mouse that adapts to the natural motion of your hand. The Whirl™ Mini builds off of the simple, strikingly unique design of the original Smartfish Mouse which was awarded the CES Innovations award for 2010. It employs the same patented technology in a smaller form factor so that business professionals, travelers, commuters, and other laptop users can take advantage of the ultra-comfortable computing experience Smartfish provides.
“Conventional notebook mice lack comfort not only because of their smaller size but also due to the fixed, rigid position your hand is forced into for hours on end.” said Dr. Jack Atzmon, President and CEO of Smartfish Technologies. “This leads to fatigue, discomfort, and ultimately, repetitive stress injury. Whirl’s comfort pivot system provides the natural fluid movement your body needs. The mouse becomes a natural extension of your hand as if it’s floating on air. It’s the most luxurious comfort attainable for on-the-go computing.”
The Whirl ™ Mini Notebook Mouse was developed in collaboration with the country’s leading Orthopedic Hospital, The Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, whose mission statement is to “improve mobility and the quality of life for all.” This is the Hospital’s first collaboration on a consumer product in their 160-year history. A portion of our proceeds is donated to the Hospital for Special Surgery Rehabilitation Education Fund to help further research of technologies. (www.hss.edu)
