Dear Friends,
We wanted to announce our exhibit at the National Ergonomic conference at Caesar's Palace Las Vegas, December 10-12th 2002.
BOOTH # 427

In 2002, we have completed studies on our product, the RollerMouse.
October   2002 - 5% increase in productivity in just 2 weeks by saving time to reach for a mouse
September 2002 - 70% reduction in right wrist pain in 3 weeks of use.
May       2002 - 47% reduction in right upper arm/neck area pain in just 3 weeks of use
Visit to download PDF of the studies. If you have any questions or need  more information please don't hesitate to contact Contour Design.
Mike Wynn, Vice President and Ergonomics Engineer for Humantech states, „The results from our pilot study were very  promising. The RollerMouse effectively eliminated ergonomic risk related to reaching to the input device and showed a comfort  advantage over a standard 2- button mouse. Users were able to achieve faster data entry using the RollerMouse, averaging  almost 5% increased productivity. We're looking forward to conducting additional studies to confirm that these initial  results hold up in real work environments.“ Visit the link below to download PDF of study.
