Can someone recommend an ergonomic mouse?

I've been working at home a lot as of late and developed wrist pain/carpal tunnel syndrome?

I'm finding my Logitech m325 mouse to not be cutting it as its way too small for my hands.

I was considering the Anker vertical ergonomic mouse but reading reviews it seems to not be very good (too light, bad battery, quality issues, etc.)

Does anyone have any recommendations for an ergonomic mouse, preferably one for medium-sized hands?

I've been using the Logitech G602 for the past few years. It's wireless with great battery life and often on sale for $40.... just not now unfortunately :(

I use a MX Ergo at home and a M570 at work.

Try one without batteries. Weighs less.

Despite its name try a Razer Deathadder V1 or V2. It's designed for a large hand but it's known to be very ergonomic. It's fine for non-gaming use.

With these trackball mouses, does the cursor still move if you were to move the mouse or does the cursor only move if you use the trackball?

Very nice looking mouse, but over $100 bucks for a mouse? Yikes! Completely out of my budget.

I'll second the gaming mouse recommendations. They are designed for extended periods of "serious" use, so they are very ergonomic. They are also generally more pleasant to use due to faster response and more accurate tracking.

I have a Logitech MX Master 2s (the Master 3 is the current model) and it's great. But since it's out of your budget maybe try to find a cheaper knockoff from Amazon or something. Keep in mind the build quality may not be as good but sometimes you don't know what the difference is until you try the more expensive item so you'll probably never know the difference.

If you shake the whole thing the cursor will move a bit. But clicking doesn't move the trackball if that's what you mean.

Cursor only moves with the ball movement.

Trackball is all I use, it's the best choice if you want to prevent RSI or already have injuries. Once you get used to it, it's incredibly efficient.

The MX ergo is quite expensive, so your best bet is the M570 - it tends to go on sale for $40. These are "thumb" trackballs so your hand rests on the mouse while just your thumb moves the cursor, it's very comfy.

The other alternative is the old style actual trackballs that have a ball you move with your fingers and buttons on either side. There is the old classic logitech marble mouse that's been around for 20 years ($30 https://www.amazon.ca/Logitech-910-0008 ... B001F42MKG ), and other offerings from kensington. There's fancier stuff, but it will be out of your budget.

No, I mean if I move the mouse like how you move a regular mouse, will the cursor move?

I have both the wired Anker (here - 24$) and the Adesso (Here - 45$)

I did have to send the first Anker one back since it was damaged in shipping but the second one was fine. I have had the Anker for a year (spare for use away from my desk) and the Adesso for 6+ years (for work / when at my desk).

I had purchased the Adesso because of the exact issues you mentioned - have not had them since.

Logitech G500/G502/Whatever the latest version is. Most comfortable mouse design I've ever used.

I use a Logitech Trackball as well. There are a couple of variations. It takes time to get used to it.
