Hello All,

In 2002, we have completed 3 major studies on our product, the
RollerMouse.

October 2002 - pilot study shows 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 <http://www.contourdesign.com/rollermouse_press.htm> to download a
PDF of  the studies.

We have made some small changes to our RollerMouse demo from your
overwhelming  response and feedback. Many are already using the demo
via email for friends  who might see pain associated with reaching for
a mouse. You view it at the link below.

We also have video footage from Woody Dwyer from Humantech Ergonomic 
Consulting. He spoke at our Partner Meeting in Las Vegas and had some
pretty  strong opinions of the RollerMouse benefits. Let me know if
you would like this 1mb video.  "The RollerMouse can
effectively eliminate all risk associated with reaching for a mouse."

Contact your local ergo dealer or let us know if there is anything we
can do to  assist in your Contour Design product selection.

Thank you,

~ErgoManiacs
