    Has anybody ever used one of these?
    Are they any better than a regular mouse?
    Will they really stop the ache in my Arm, neck and back?

    Responses appriciated :D

    Probably. Using the trackpad instead of a mouse stops aches in my wrist.

    Mac since 7.5
    I used to feel pain and fatigue in my forearm in the evenings, after being on my computer at work all day then surfing thee web on my PB at night. I learned that I was suffering from a mild case of RSI, so I bought an Evoluent Vertical mouse. I use it on my Mac at work, and I no longer have pain in my forearm at night while surfing with either the PB trackpad or a BT mouse.

    It looks a bit odd and seems waaay too big when you look at it, but it feels very natural and compact in the hand, and I was used to it in 2-3 days. It doesn't even bother me switching to other mice.
