There are two solutions to repetitive strain injury at work. One is to resign, chuck your computer in a skip and go and live the simple life in tree house. If that’s a bit dramatic, try Hela’s bizarre new mouse instead.The ‘Glider’ looks, on first impressions, like an air hockey game for your PC. Once you overcome the disappointment that this isn’t the case, you’ll find that the keyboard-sized unit is actually a replacement for that wrist-mangler we call a ‘mouse’.Wristy businessApparently, its central position in front of the keyboard is better because you no longer have to fumble awkwardly to the side, and your wrists are treated to some gel-filled rests.To move the cursor, you move the ‘glider’ across the pad, while twelve configurable buttons and a scroll wheel provide a similar level of control to the captain of the Starship Enterprise.As you’d hope for a £150 mouse, the Glider is versatile too – both lefties and righties can use it, and it’ll work on Macs, PCs and laptops. If you really want to pimp your desk, there’s also an optional accessory for fixing it to the edge. That’s what we call a hardcore workstation.
