Here’s more information about a warm mouse, the USB heated computer mouse, the ValueRays Infrared heated mouse:

  • A heated, warm computer mouse produces relief or prevention of the ill effects of medical conditions related to cold hands and computer use.  Some of these items include, and are not limited to Muscular & Joint Hand Pain, Stiffness, Stress, CTS, Arthritis, Poor Circulation, Raynaud’s Disease, CTD, RSI, RMI, MS and Diabetes.
  • The low 5 volt heating element is very safe for use at home or at work.  Plug the USB cord into the USB port when using the heated mouse and turn it “off” when the heat is not needed.
  • Occupational Therapy and Hand Therapists report an increase of hand injuries due to the increased amount of computer use.  The importance of ergonomics is at an all-time high.  The use of healthy computer gadgets will assist in creating a productive and healing work environment.  The infrared heated computer mouse assists a worker’s rehabilitation after hand injury during and ongoing throughout the rehabilitative, healing process. 
  • A warm computer mouse feels good all year.  During the winter when temperatures drop, the heated mouse delivers a cost-efficient heat source to your hand and body.  In the summer, when air-conditioning is used to cool a room or office space, the heated computer mouse takes the cold edge off your mouse hand. 
  • Some medications decrease the flow of blood to the extremeties causing cold hands and a cold mouse hand and mouse hand fingers.  Your hands feel cold in normal room temperatures due to some medications.  A warm mouse will help compensate for the decrease in blood flow and the infrared heat will actually increase blood flow through the blood vessels which decrease the chances of poor circulation.
  • Smoking and the use of nicotine can cause cold hands.  Infrared heat helps to remove the toxins in the blood cells picked up through smoking and through other environmental activities, even in some of the foods we eat and the air we breathe.  An infrared heated mouse when used for 20-30 minutes daily can help rid the body of these unwanted toxins.
  • There are a variety of medical conditions people deal with daily which have cold hand symptoms and side effects.  These people could benefit from using a heated computer mouse.  Some of the medical conditions include: Raynaud’s disease, low thyroid levels, anemia, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, arthritis, carpal tunnel, tendonitis and many other medical conditions can produce cold hands. Sometimes these conditions make your entire body feel chilled and cold. An infrared heated mouse can keep you feeling comfortable even when others don’t feel cold.
  • Warmth and heat is soothing when your hands hurt.  Painful hands are not uncommon for computer users.  Fingers, thumbs, palms, wrists, etc. ache, and these aches & pains come and go depending upon our actvities and the amount of time we sit and work at the computer.  A warm computer mouse helps relieve the pain by increasing blood flow, expanding blood vessels and increaseing blood circulation. 
  • Weather predicts our body’s reaction to cold.  Sometimes it’s damp, chilly, and we begin to feel aches and pains. Fingers get numb from gripping a cold mouse.  When it’s cold outside our body reacts with chills and an uncomfortable feeling.  When we sit still at the computer, the chills seem to magnify.  Warmth from a heated mouse can help eleviate the chills by delivering a steady flow of infrared heat rays to our hand and body. If your hands are cold, it’s difficult to concentrate on anything else, but ways to relieve the cold.  Sometimes the only way to fix the cold is to stop working, and that’s not always an option.  Now, the warm mouse can assist by delivering a steady flow of warmth when needed — even in an air-conditioned room or office.
  • Warm mouse users report a decrease of daily stress and an increase in the ability to use the computer longer.  We just tested this with a fibromyalgia patient in an Occupational Therapy Lab.  Cold hands when using the computer created stress.  The warmth helped the person to do their job with ease and comfort.  When you feel comfortable, time passes more quickly, and tasks are completed with ease.  Not only does the infrared heat help increase blood flow, it helps create a healthy, clear mental attitude and a postive desire.  When warmth is generated from a heated, warm mouse, a person feels relaxed and can use the computer for longer periods of time without cold hand cramps, stress and pain. 
  • Cumulative Trauma Disorder (CTD), Repetitive Stain Injury (RSI) and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) are the most common hand ailments experienced by many computer users.  Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. Sometimes, thickening from irritated tendons or other swelling narrows the tunnel and causes the median nerve to be compressed. The result may be pain, weakness, or numbness in the hand and wrist, radiating up the arm. A warm mouse can help increase blood circulation to the tendons and reduce the chances of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome from occuring.  When proactive approaches like using an infrared heated mouse are practiced, some Carpal Tunnel problems are reversible or can be avoided altogether. It’s wise to seek advice from a doctor when a severe illness is suspected.  Do not rely soley on the information from the Internet.
  • The warming infrared heat generated by an USB heated mouse penetrates deeply through skin layers into the muscles.  Infrared heat has been used for many centuries by Eastern medicines.  It’s now available in computer devices and the infrared heated mouse is ideal for painful hand problems.  The warming mouse can actually help loosen and prevent muscle stiffness.  Research indicates 20-30 minutes of infrared heat therapy daily improves circulation and produces positive results. 
  • Hypertension, stess, anxiety and nervous tendancies may require certain medications.  These medications can cause cold hands.  If suffering from stress or tension is part of your everyday lifestyle, or if the medication you are taking to control these medical conditions causes your hands to become cold, the warmth created by an infrared heated mouse can provide relaxation and a soothing work experience. 
  • Warmth for Repetitve Motion Injury, MS, and Raynaud’s Disease sufferers.  There’s no known cure for many of the phenomenons or conditions not labeled as a disease,  but there are ways to help the people with these syndromes be more comfortable.  A warm, heated mouse helps create a comfortable mouse hand experience for a person with cold hands.  Most MS, RMI and Raynaud’s sufferers report cold hands, feet and extremeties due to spasms which cause blood vessels to tighten and close.  These attacks can be brought on by a number of things, including the onset of cold weather, a drop in temperature and emotional or mental stress.  Many MS and RMI patients report confusion and memory loss along with sensitive skin and cold hand symptoms.
