A warm computer mouse is the answer for many people who suffer with cold hands. Many of us sit for hours working at the computer with freezing cold hands and don't know what to do to solve the problem. There is a solution. The heated computer mouse is the answer to a cold mouse hand. It's a cost effective and energy efficient way to keep warm when your hands are cold. There are other warming, heated computer products, too. They are all available at IGMproducts.com, and they include a heated, warm mouse pad, a heated, warm keyboard pad and a fleece mouse hand warmer blanket pouch to house the warm mouse and warm mouse pad.
The warm mouse is USB connected to the computer using a low 5v electrical current making it safe for people and the computer. The heated computer mouse is made using a carbon fiber. Carbon fibers create infrared heat. Infrared heat has healing qualities making the time the user spends holding the warm computer mouse therapeutic in nature. Studies reveal a minimum of 20-30 minutes daily of infrared therapy has healing effects.
Do your hands get cold easily? Do you sit for long periods of time at the computer holding a cold computer mouse? Does your mouse hand get cold? Do your fingers get numb? Do you have a cold mouse hand? Many people suffer with pain in their hands from the cold. As soon as the temperatures drop in a room or work space chills experienced by the computer user run through the body. The cold from a drop in temperature, drafts from a nearby window, or from an overhead ceiling fan can all cause a person's exposed extremities to feel cold and then painfully numb.
Most people who experience this depth of cold hand frigidness already have a diagnosed condition and are aware of the cause of the cold hand problem. Many people are not aware of the cold hand problem source. The most common conditions falling into this category are carpal tunnel syndrome, poor circulation, arthritis, Raynaud's, diabetes and other illnesses specifically associated with cold hand symptoms. Many daily habits can cause cold hands, too. Nicotine and certain medications can affect our metabolism, and the body's response to cold.
Here's a list of the type of people who need a warm computer mouse:
Symptoms of cold fingertips and hands during times of stress and cold exposure suggests the benign but annoying condition of primary Raynaud’s, also called Raynaud’s disease. Primary Raynaud’s usually appears between the ages of 15 to 40, is more common in women and those who live in cold climates, and affects up to 10 percent of the population. While we don’t completely understand the process of Raynaud’s, it appears the blood vessels in the extremities overreact to stress or exposure to cold by going into spasm. This leads to decreased blood flow and loss of heat. As a result the fingers and other affected areas feel cold and become pale or blue in color. When the spasm is over, the affected areas may temporarily turn a red as the warmth returns. (source)
Secondary Raynaud’s produces symptoms similar to primary Raynaud’s, but is triggered by smoking or a medical condition, which includes:• Connective tissue diseases such as Scleroderma or Sjogren’s syndrome.• Autoimmune diseases such as lupus.• Arterial diseases including Buerger’s and peripheral arterial disease.• Rheumatoid arthritis.• Neurological disorders such as carpel tunnel syndrome and reflex sympathetic dystrophy.• Previous fractures and vibration-induced injuries, from, for example the use of vibrating tools.Even certain medications have the potential to trigger secondary Raynaud’s symptoms. These medications include beta blockers, estrogen-containing drugs, certain chemotherapeutic agents and the over-the-counter decongestant pseudoephedrine. (source)
Alcohol in the blood lowers a person's tolerance for the cold and can easily cause cold hands, numbness, tingling sensations. Studies and clinical symptoms of alcoholism were described more than 200 years ago and have led to the recognition and association of peripheral nerve disease with excessive ethanol use. When nerves are damaged so is blood flow. Alcohol appears to be toxic to autonomic and peripheral nerves in a dose-dependent manner, on the basis of heart rate and blood pressure. (source) Alcohol, or ethanol, is a poison with direct toxic effects on nerve and muscle cells. Depending on which nerve and muscle pathways are involved, alcohol can have far-reaching effects on different parts of the brain, peripheral nerves, and muscles, with symptoms of memory loss, incoordination, seizures, weakness, and sensory deficits.

People who work in cold environments risk the onset of hypothermia. Hypothermia should be and can be avoided. A person who experiences hypothermia causes their body temperature to drop below normal (98.6°F). Hypothermia (from Greek ὑποθερμία) is a condition in which an organism's temperature drops below that required for normal metabolism and bodily functions. In warm-blooded animals, core body temperature is maintained near a constant level through biologic homeostasis. But, when the body is exposed to cold, its internal mechanisms may be unable to replenish the heat that is being lost to the organism's surroundings. Hypothermia is the opposite of hyperthermia, the condition that causes heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Stage 1 hypothermia produces mild shivering, inability to perform tasks with the hands, and the hands become numb. (source)
Diabetics experience poor circulation to their extremities. A warm computer mouse would add comfort to diabetics who suffer with cold hands.
Peripheral Vascular disease refers to diseases of blood vessels outside the heart and brain. It's often a narrowing of vessels that carry blood to the legs, arms, stomach or kidneys. (source)
Hand injuries include knuckle injury, finger injury, and/or joint injury. A warm computer mouse would be soothing for the person during the recovery process. The infrared heat generated by the warm mouse would aid and help speed the recovery and healing process.
People who suffer from chronic hand pain would benefit from the healing infrared heat of the warm mouse. The heated computer mouse delivers deep, soothing, healing heat to your computer mouse hand whenever you sit and work at the computer.
There's much to say about the healing effects of infrared heat. Yet, it's a well-hidden secret. The Eastern Countries have been using the healing effects of infrared heat for hundreds of years. Now, Western Medicine and practitioners are relying upon the use of infrared heat in hospitals, NASA Space Programs, and private practices. The most common use of infrared heat is the Infrared Sauna. Other sources are infrared heating pads and the introduction of infrared heated computer products.
Here's some interesting data about infrared heat: (source)
A study of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome found considerable relief of symptoms with daily Infrared treatment. Although the patients had been taking prednisone, a powerful medication used to temporarily dampen inflammation, this potent drug had shown no beneficial effects prior to administration of the heat therapy. After 15 to 25 sessions in a FIR sauna, the patients showed significant improvement in fatigue, pain, sleep disruption and low-grade fever. The patients were able to discontinue prednisone medication and showed no relapse of symptoms after a year, during which time they continued the infrared therapy once or twice weekly.
