Smartfish Shows ErgoMotion Mouse

LAS VEGAS
- Smartfish Technologies will be demonstrating its ErgoMotion technology at the
Venetian Tower 229 at International CES, along with its first product to
incorporate the new technology.

The
company bills ErgoMotion as the first design to combine the science of
ergonomics with the technology of motion, resulting in a dramatic change and
improvement in the way comfort is integrated into devices like mice and
keyboards.

Smartfish
said it worked with product design engineers and medical specialists to develop
ErgoMotion, which aims to relieve discomfort and repetitive stress injuries
(RSI) related to extended computer use.

ErgoMotion
enables computer peripherals to automatically adjust to the user's natural hand
and wrist positions throughout the day, providing a more comfortable, healthier
and more enjoyable computer lifestyle, the company said.

"ErgoMotion
is based on the concept that motion heals," said Dr. Jack Atzmon, president and
CEO of Smartfish Technologies. "Up until this point, there has been no true
solution for the inherent problem of discomfort and injury caused by repetitive
use of computer input devices.  The
mobile designs of our ErgoMotion products not only prevent discomfort and
injury of hands and wrists but also provide for increased productivity and a
better overall user experience."

The
company's first product to use the ErgoMotion technology is the ErgoMotion
Mouse. It's said to be the first laser mouse for the PC that features a
patented swivel mechanism to promote a fluid movement, allowing the mouse to
intuitively adapt to the user's hand position. ErgoMotion technology enables
forward, backward and lateral pivots, creating a wave-like movement for the
wrist every time the mouse is in use, said Smartfish.

Features
include a sleek design with chrome detailing, left- and right-click, four-way
scroll wheel and a discreet wireless USB
plug-in. The mouse is compatible with Macs and PCs and has an ambidextrous
design to accommodate both right- and left-handed users. 

Suggested
retail is $49.99. It is currently available.
