Home to Aerobic Mouse and the E-Quill-AirO2bic Mouse™ (pronounced Aerobic mouse), the only mousing system that is designed to maintain your "mousing" fingers, hand, wrist and forearm, those muscles most at risk of fatigue, in a near resting, muscle relaxed, posture; something ergonomist's call "Functional Neutral", so as to help maintain more aerobic conditions in those tissues to reduce the risks of what scientists now call Repetitive Negligible Force Injuries.

By designing out the need to use those muscles and joints that are most prone to injury we designed in the capability for these same products to be used just as effectively and productively by persons who may not have use or control over them. As a Universal Design it looks at home on all workstations as it allows those without disability to avoid using those muscles that can injure and enables many with hand dexterity disability, through injury, illness or as a consequence of aging, to work as effectively and productively as their colleagues, truly accessible technology. It should be remembered that computing is not natural and therefore there is no "normal ability". It is how we manufacturer's make our computer products that designates "computer ability".

For that reason it should also remember that persons technology designates as having less computer dexterity are equally if not more prone to impairment as they typically have fewer muscles available to do the same workload and so our objective and that of Universal Design, is to enable as many individuals as possible, across the spectrum of human variability.

The explanation as to why impairment can occur is lengthy, multifaceted, crossing many disciplines of science. For those who wish to look deeper we have provided insight that out our own investigations have found, both from the initial research that set our own mouse design parameters to desktop investigations, such as the neurology of pain suppression that suggests that when we are busy doing "thinking work" we can be so preoccupied that we do not perceive the aches that warn of fatigue and overwork at the time that they start to occur.

An ache is a warning sign to take a break; rest and so recover (re-aerate tissues; build up oxygen levels and get rid of toxins, the byproducts of metabolism that build up when you work muscles). If you take a break the ache will likely go away and so the risk of injury reduced. A pain is a consequence of injury that doesn't go away even when you stop doing "ache work". It appears that when we are doing work we cannot rely on our senses to warn us at the times we ache, which means we must use tools that help to avoid ache work:

"If you do not ache, then you are less likely to injure!"
