By using the Hoverstop ergonomic mouse system you will introduce a serie of additional micro breaks while performing your normal work procedures. The additional micro-breaks can add over 10 minutes of rest per hour to your hand and arm.
The idea behind Hoverstop came to life when Erwin Welbergen, the founder and inventor of Hoverstop, started experiencing problems with RSI himself. With a background as a human motion scientist and having managed his own company for fifteen years intensive computer use was a daily activity. The problems with RSI and the threat to the continuity of his company led to the development of Hoverstop
Together with ex-colleagues of the VU University in Amsterdam the concept was developed into a functional product. In March 2002 Hoverstop applied for the patent for the mouse and other devices where passive use may lead to health problems.
The management team consists of Erwin and Richard Wolfe. Richard has extensive experience in marketing and sales in international business services.
