Things to Remember

Safety Measures

Never point the mouse’s optical sensor toward the face, particularly the eyes, to avoid possible injury.

Operating Hints

When using an optical mouse, for optimal performance:

Never use the mouse on a glass or mirrored surface or on black velvet as these surfaces will cause the mouse to fail temporarily.

8

Mini Trackball Optical Mouse

Avoid using the mouse on surfaces with repetitive patterns, such as printed magazine photographs, as this type of surface may cause the mouse to respond slowly or fail temporarily.

Comfortable Usage

Research suggests that physical discomfort and injury to nerves, tendons, and muscles may be related to repetitive motion, an improperly set up work area, incorrect body posture, or poor work habits.

To reduce the risk of injury, follow these precautions:

Stand, stretch, and move around several times every hour.

Switch hands while performing tasks. Use shortcut keys to avoid repetitive or awkward mouse movements.

Relax your shoulders and keep your elbows at your sides. Adjust the keyboard’s position so that you don’t have to stretch to reach it.

Adjust your position so that you don’t have to bend your wrists to type; avoid placing your wrists on a sharp edge.

If you feel discomfort or numbness in your hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, neck, or back while typing, consult a qualified medical professional.
