Ergonomic HandShoe Mouse Appoints Prestige International as US Distributor

January 16, 2011

Hippus, the owner and developer of the first evidence based, truly ergonomic mouse and Prestige International are excited about this new partnership initiative, which will make the HandShoe Mouse available in all ergonomic and IT channels.

New York, NY (PRWEB) January 14, 2011

Hippus N.V., the Dutch owner and producer of the truly ergonomic, evidence based Hand Shoe Mouse announces a new premier partnership with Prestige International inc. to distribute the Hand Shoe Mouse in the USA.

The patented Hand Shoe Mouse has been developed by the medical department of Erasmus University in the Netherlands. Since its inception, field tests and follow-up research by several universities in other parts of the world have checked the assumptions of Erasmus University. They have reached the conclusion that the shape of the HandShoe Mouse is unique and it’s the only ergonomic mouse that fully supports the hand. It prevents gripping and pinching and the shape and curvature allow your hand, fingers and forearm to relax in a natural position. This way major causes of Repetitive Strain Injury and/or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are prevented.

The HandShoe Mouse was first introduced in the USA on a wider scale during the Ergo Expo in Las Vegas, just over a year ago and has since then been sold by several ergonomic resellers in the USA. In the meantime many American ergonomists have adopted the HandShoe Mouse as their favorite ergonomic mouse. After suffering from pains in their hand, arm or neck, many Americans have been able to get back to work again, using this truly ergonomic mouse.

“That’s why we wanted to take the next step in the United States,” says Sjoerd Eisma, Chief Executive Officer of Hippus. “Prestige International will make sure that the HandShoe Mouse will be made available through all ergonomic channels and many general IT channels. Everybody can have access to a HandShoe Mouse now and will enjoy working with a computer more than ever!”

Lance Rocha, Executive Vice-President of Prestige International comments: “The HandShoe Mouse is based on extensive research and has already proven to be the favorite of many top-ergonomists in the USA. We’re proud to be chosen as the HandShoe Mouse sole distribution partner in the USA.”

Paul Helder, Chief Technical Officer of Hippus and one of the inventors of the HandShoe Mouse, is keen to add more features to the HandShoe Mouse and comments: “We will keep surprising our customers and prospects with new technologies, which we can add to the unique shape of the HandShoe Mouse. Watch this space!”
