Logitech thinks it may finally have cracked the vertical mouse

If you’re looking for something a little different when it comes to a professional mouse, Logitech has unveiled a new upright model that it claims is the most comfortable yet.

The new Logitech Lift is a wireless, vertical, ergonomic, but small mouse that the company says is designed for all-day work sessions, whether in the office or at home.

Available in the next few months, the Logitech Lift is expected to cost $69.99 / £69.99, meaning it should be a relatively inexpensive way to shake up your hybrid work setup.

Takeoff of Logitech

Vertical mice have become an exception in recent years, but Logitech thinks its new offering can make a real difference in comfort and style. The lift features a 57 degree vertical design which is said to take the strain off your wrist and provide a more natural forearm position while in use.

The Lift is said to have been specifically designed for “small to medium sized hands”, although the exact size this relates to is unclear. The company says the mouse is 22% smaller than its previous MX Vertical model and comes in three colors, one of which comes in left-handed and right-handed versions.

The mouse itself has a soft rubber grip and a well-placed thumb rest to ensure your hands don’t get tired during long workdays.

“Ergonomics and comfort play a critical role in overall workplace well-being,” said Olessia Hageman, ergo business unit manager at Logitech. “Building on our philosophy that when we feel better, we do better, we created Lift to help people work comfortably for hours and feel better at the end of a long day at the office.”
