Smartfish Trumotion Wireless Mouse Fights Wrist Strain Bobblehead Style

Newly formed company Smartfish Technologies teamed up with the New York-based Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) to come up with a wireless mouse designed to prevent and alleviate wrist strain. The result? A bobblehead mouse. Well, not exactly but the TRU:MOTION mouse’s “thing” is that it pivots and conforms to the direction and angle of your hand’s movements, so that your wrist is never in a fixed position.

As you can see the mouse has two parts. The base is where the optical tracking device is, nothing new here, you move the mouse to move the cursor-on screen. The bobblehead on top is the wobbly one, and theoretically it should minimize the strain by being wobbly.

We don’t have a video of the TRU:MOTION mouse in action, so we can’t say how well this translate into actual usage. But if Smartfish’ brochure (pdf) is to be believed, the wireless mouse – along with other ergonomic peripherals and devices – will be available this year. We’ll be on the lookout for reviews then. For now, why don’t you try mashing a bobblehead figure to a mouse, just to see how it works. Come on. It’ll be fun.
