The well liked Evoluent™ VerticalMouse™ has been updated and is now even better than before. It features more intuitive navigation with 5 Buttons, clickable scroll wheel and a big dose of ergonomics, so comfortable you wont even notice that you’ve been using it the whole day.
- Eliminates arm twisting: Patented shape supports your hand in a relaxed handshake position that eliminates the forearm twisting experienced with other mice.
- Changes how you grip: The grip is the same as an ordinary mouse, just turned sideways. No matter the size of your hands, you’ll adjust quickly and can expect pointer control that’s just as accurate as with any other high-quality mouse.
- Easy to use buttons: All five buttons are easily operable without contorting your fingers. For XP Pro, XP Home, and Vista 32 users, each button can be programmed to suit your desires.
- Ultra fast response: A 2200 dpi true optical resolution sensor moves the pointer quickly to reduce hand movements.
Includes drivers for Windows XP, Pro, and XP Home for programming all 5 buttons. The driver is not required. The VerticalMouse 4 still has basic functionality without it.

Smaller version of the Evoluent Vertical Mouse for people with hands less than 7 inches or 178mm long from top of middle finger to wrist crease.
Comfortable and Easy to Use Optimally sculpted for uncompromised comfort and easy to reach programmable buttons. No finger stretching or contortions are required.
Maintains Blood Flow through the Wrist Conventional horizontal mice cause your forearm to twist away from its natural position, which can reduce blood flow, put muscles in awkward positions and increase the rate of fatigue. For many, this can result in discomfort and pain while mousing.
Eliminates Forearm Pronation The design of the Evoluent VerticalMouse improves comfort and control when mousing, with a patented shape that supports the hand in a relaxed handshake position, and a sculpted ‘notch’ for your thumb to rest in. This innovative design eliminates forearm twisting and minimizes the effort required to use the mouse.
Almost No Learning Curve Users use the same familiar handhold as with an ordinary mouse (just turned sideways), and the buttons are operated by the same fingers. This virtually eliminates any need to retrain or establish new muscle memory when mousing.
Cursor Stability The mouse does not unintentionally move sideways when clicking with normal force because the thumb naturally opposes the finger movements.
Pointer Accuracy Pointer control is as accurate as any other high-quality performance mouse with on-mouse adjustable speed controls.
Adjustable Laser Sensor: Pointer speed buttons on the side allow convenient adjustment without even changing one’s hand position on the mouse.
Pointer Speed Indicators: Top mounted LEDs show through the housing on the chrome thumb rest to indicate selected pointer speed from extra low to high.
Back-Lit Evoluent Logo: A purely cosmetic feature which adds to the lustre and modern look of this mouse. The illumination turns off when the system is in sleep mode to conserve notebook battery power.
Useful and Intuitive Driver: Mouse Manager for Windows provides extensive configuration options and is still easy to use through a simple and intuitive interface.
Shape: Improved softer contouring makes for a more comfortable fit. The slightly greater height better accommodates larger hands while improved contours maintain comfortable grasp locations for a wide range of hand sizes. This combined with a deeper and slightly angled indentation for the thumb reduces the pressure in the web of the hand.
Scroll Wheel: Grooved soft rubber with tactile detents.
Finger Flange: The significantly larger finger flange prevents the fifth finger from dragging on desk.
Speed Toggle: Move up or down through the 4 pointer speed settings with easy-to-access side button and clearly visible indicator.
Application Dependent Buttons: Create customized button programming which automatically take effect depending on which application is active.
Design: Improved sensor coupled with the light button activation force for which the Evoluent is known. Button action and vertical scroll wheel movement is smooth, consistent and precise. Improved contours provides greater comfort and a more relaxed grip.
Relaxed Handshake Position: The ergonomic contoured shape supports the hand in a natural handshake position that eliminates forearm twisting. Users employ the same familiar grip as with an ordinary mouse, but in a vertical orientation, so almost no retraining is needed. Clicking the mouse buttons does not result in unwanted movement because the thumb naturally opposes other finger movements.
Contoured and Textured: The contoured black portion of the body where one holds the mouse has a polyurethane coating, allowing the user to have complete control of the mouse just by resting one’s hand on it — practically eliminating the need to grip the mouse.
Light Tactile Buttons: The buttons on the VerticalMouse take about half the force of traditional mice to click, so your fingers won’t get tired with the high frequency of clicking required in today’s computer applications. The button force is light for easy clicking, but still retains sufficient tactile firmness to avoid accidental actuation.
Six Buttons: The VerticalMouse provides a total of 6 buttons. Two thumb operated buttons and 3 finger operated buttons are provided, with the scroll wheel providing a sixth button.
Auto Click: Automatically perform a single or double click by pausing the pointer. The time delay before activation is adjustable.
Click Lock (or Drag Lock): Press and hold a button momentarily to simulate continued pressing without holding down the button. The time delay before activation is adjustable.
Break Reminder: Set up visual and/or audio alerts to remind you to take a break.
