In the Netherlands alone, it is estimated that almost 40% of workers suffer from Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) symptoms. RSI from mouse use is caused by performing repetitive operations while the hand and arm barely move. Current ‘ergonomic’ solutions do not significantly reduce these symptoms. We believe it is time to take the R out of RSI! We developed Mouscle, a computer mouse that slowly and subtly changes shape throughout the day to combat symptoms and development of RSI.
