Logitech revealed the Logitech MX Vertical this week, the company’s most advanced ergonomic mouse. The new device was designed to reduce forearm strain and wrist pressure, while its special 57-degree vertical angle is optimized for an ergonomic posture without compromising on productivity. It’s a new take on Logitech’s most popular, and best reviewed, line of Mouse products.

“We know that many computer users experience discomfort or pain in their hand, forearm and in their wrists,” said Delphine Donne-Crock, general manager of creativity and productivity at Logitech. “To address this, we’ve created our most advanced ergonomic mouse yet, MX VERTICAL, designed with an innovative natural handshake position. The unique angle is optimized for an ergonomic posture and reduces both wrist pressure and forearm strain. With MX VERTICAL, you can maximize your productivity in comfort.”

In a statement released earlier today, Logitech added that the MX Vertical was “scientifically tested and ergonomist approved,” designed with a natural handshake position and a 57-degree vertical angle to reduce muscular activity by up to 10% compared to a standard mouse without any loss in overall performance. The comfort form is designed to fit a variety of hand shapes and sizes, while the textured rubber surface and thumb rest ensure a solid and natural grip.

The MX Vertical offers 4,000 DPI high-precision sensor, resulting in up to 4x less hand movement and reducing fatigue. The cursor speed switch allows you to instantly adjust DPI speed and accuracy of your cursor with the touch of a button. The MX Vertical rechargeable battery lasts up to four months on a full charge, and a quick one-minute charge gets you three hours of use. Enabled with both Logitech Easy-Switch and Logitech Flow you can seamlessly switch between two computers, and even copy and paste content, images and documents between them.

The MX Vertical is priced at $99.99 and expected to be available at select retail stores in September, with pre-orders available on Logitech.com.
