The Best Vertical Mouse in 2022

Do you feel any wrist or finger pain after working for long hours with your mouse? A vertical mouse might be the solution you need. Especially if you are a programmer, I highly recommend getting a vertical, ergonomic mouse since it will save you from wrist pain and discomfort while working. Here are some of the best vertical mouses that are ergonomic, budget-friendly, and will save you from pain and discomfort after long hours of work.

01 Evoluent VerticalMouse

If you have larger hands, this is the mouse that is specifically designed for you. This particular vertical mouse is designed to curve with the shape of your hand to allow it to rest naturally. Evoluent was one of the first companies to make vertical mouses and remains a significant manufacturer to date. The VMDLW is one of their largest models, with a comfortable, ergonomic design that’s best for those with hand lengths exceeding 7.5” (measured from the base of the hand/top of the wrist to the tip of the middle finger), the model gently supports your right hand in an upright neutral position. The patented shape prevents you from twisting your forearm like you usually do with an ordinary mouse. This model works well with both Mac and PC and has programmable buttons that are also grooved for a more stable feel. This mouse is also available in small and medium sizes. You can install the Evoluent Mouse Manager onto your computer to configure the VerticalMouse’s buttons. Not only can you change their function, but you can also set how the buttons work within different programs.  With this mouse, you can adjust the pointer speed from low to high with the optical sensor controls on the side of the mouse. There is no need to release the grip for speed adjustment. The mouse manager is compatible with Windows 7 and 10 and Mac OS 10.5 to 10.14.
