The new DXT 2 wireless mouse is a compact ergonomic mouse which has been expertly designed by a team of leading UK physiotherapists and ergonomists. The DXT 2 promotes a neutral (more vertical) wrist posture while allowing the hand to work with a light touch fingertip hold providing precision cursor control. It is the only compact right and left handed ergonomic mouse designed to use the precision movements of the hand.
Ergonomic relaxed neutral wrist and hand position
The design of the DXT 2 enables the hand to work from a relaxed position reducing the tension on the soft tissues.
Precision grip for accurate navigation
Unlike other vertical mice, the DXT 2 is held like a pen in the “precision” grip which engages the small muscles and joints of the fingers (as opposed to large muscle groups of the shoulder). These smaller muscles are ideal for mousing because they are better adapted for finer, precise movements.
Instantly switches between right and left hand
Switches between right and left handed use with the tap of a button (no changes to button-assingments in the operating system are required). This unique feature allows mouse-sensitive users to distribute usage between both hands to spread the workload thus maximizing comfort and productivity.
Compact design fits a large range of hand sizes
Because you hold the DXT in your finger tips, it’s compatible with both small and large hands.
Great for travel
Unlike other, more bulky, ergonomic mice the DXT 2 is ideal for laptop and travel use.
Rapid charge system
A mere 30 seconds of charging will support 2+ hours of use and a full charge (2 weeks of normal use) takes just 90 minutes.
Wireless RF Dongle
The included RF dongle plugs directly into one of your computer’s spare USB ports for quick, reliable pairing, unlike bluetooth mice which can suffer from dropped connections.
4 DPI levels to choose from: 500 | 1000 | 1500 | 2000
Zinc base for improved stability and accuracy
Appropriate for all hand sizes
Even though it’s small, the DXT is not hand or finger size dependent.
Consider how both small children and large adults successfully use the same sized pens and pencils to write. Why? Because both are using their fingers to hold the pen and not holding it inside the hand. It’s the same concept with the DXT where small, average, and large hands can be equally comfortable and accurate.
Furthermore, since fingers have a naturally high degree of dexterity, this allows for greater accuracy and control with more precise cursor movements.
Proper hand placement
Start by placing the tip of the ring finger over the black plastic triangular area beneath the bottom click button. The remaining finger tips and thumb will naturally position themselves on the first half of the front and back mouse surfaces, respectively, with the pinkie finger tucked in. The fingers should be comfortably curled (e.g. holding a pen) versus extended or lying flat.
The resulting hand and finger posture facilitates precision movements and avoids the fingers being placed one upon the other and coming into contact with the cable. It should be noted that the body of the mouse is not placed parallel to the side of the keyboard but at an angle to the side of the keyboard.
