It is often worth trying a few different mice as different sizes and shapes are available and require varying amounts of pressure on buttons.

The mice illustrated above are from a range of ergonomic mice which can be used to help gain better control of the device, or help alleviate the symptoms of certain upper limb disorders. The Contour mice are available in 5 sizes for the right hand and 3 for the left.

It is also important to note that everything within Windows is accessible from the keyboard alone. There is no need to use a mouse at all if you can not, or do not, want to use it. Perhaps the most important accessibility option within Windows generically are these 'keyboard shortcuts'. Many advanced computer users, find that keyboard shortcuts also provide a much faster way around the computer when in standard applications. Try 'Cntrl+S' to save your documents, rather than using your mouse, for a better idea of how useful using a keyboard instead of a mouse can be. Then, when you're ready, you might be interested in reviewing our specialist factsheet on the area, listed below.
