Using mouse as an input device accelerates the speed of computer operation and makes computing more efficient. However, inappropriate or improperly designed mouse does the opposite. Additionally, it may cause injury of arm muscles and tendons after long-term use. The studies in most recent articles worldwide are mainly focus on wired mice instead of wireless ones. In order to discover whether a mouse's form will affect user's computing efficiency. This study, therefore, had conducted experiments on wireless mice. Data includes the wrist deviation, button clicking efficiency, personal comfortableness and subjective judgment from the participant by operating four different mice in terms of shape and model, was collected and analyzed. And the comparable results had shown, that the correlation between the width of mouse and wrist's ulnar and radial deviation was negative. The wider mouse causes smaller wrist deviation, and the thinner mouse causes larger wrist deviation. The positive correlation between the height of mouse and the deviation of wrist was confirmed. The higher mouse causes larger wrist deviation, and vice versa. In addition, the correlation between the height of mouse and wrist extension was also positive. The higher mouse causes more wrist extension, and vice versa. Other results had shown that, the weight of mouse affects the smoothness of mouse's movement in terms of mouse control. User needs to put more effort in controlling if a mouse is too light. And it lowers the efficiency of mouse operation as well. Compared to a light-weight mouse, a medium-weight one, weights around 90g - 120g, has better efficiency and is easier to operate. Advisor Committee Chih-Fu Wu - advisor
