This study investigated the relationship between computer mouse work and contact pressure around the pisiform. Commonly performed mouse work was simulated using 3 different- shaped mice with 3 forearm positions. When typical mouse work was performed, the contact pressure on the pisiform area was evaluated using a digital pressure sensor and compared with that of the thenar area. Six mouse tasks were simulated. Results indicate that mouse users should avoid wrist-snap dragging and resting their wrist on the edge of the desk to minimize the pressure concentration on the pisiform area.
