Abstract: The use of vertical PC-mice in “handshake” positions, although stated equivalent to other devices, should be re-evaluated in view of the observed interosseous membrane tautness that our in vitro study demonstrated. As most thumb and index finger long muscles -agonists and antagonists alike - do originate from this forearm interosseous membrane, undue strains simultaneously caused by opposing muscles in using vertical PC-mice may elicit problems in vivo.
