How to adjust the mouse to the size of the palm and grip?

 How to adjust the mouse to the size of the palm and grip?

You know what acceleration, interpolation or LOD are. Now it's time for more practical advice, how to adjust the mouse to the size of the palm and the handle used.
Some people may seem strange, but not everyone uses a computer mouse in this way. It's not that some people have office rods they use for work, and others are more advanced players. The differences are in how we keep the mouse. If we find out, it will be easier for us to match the mouse to ourselves. The second, very important aspect is the size of our hand. First things first.
How do you keep the mouse?

This is the first question everyone should answer. There are three basic gripes that differ considerably from one another. For every other type of mouse is recommended, so this issue should not be underestimated.
The most popular grip, used by most people. It depends on the position of the whole hand on the mouse. There are two variants in this grip: 1-2-2 and 1-3-1. These numbers indicate how many fingers we hold on each side of the device. In the 1-2-2 thumb (most popular) thumb is on the left side of the mouse, on the top (on the buttons) we hold two consecutive, and on the right side there are cordial and small fingers. In the second variant, 1-3-1, we have thumb on the left side, up to three fingers (on both buttons and roll) and on the right side only a small finger. Palm-grip is the most comfortable grip for most people. The hand rests on the mouse, so it is not too tiring. Movements are fast and precise. A great advantage is the large stabilization. For this purpose, the mouse is most suitable for ergonomic design.
This is the second kind of grip. The name is not without reason comes from claws. In this grip, the fingers are arranged in the shape of claws, with the buttons touching only the pads. At the same time, the middle part of the hand is raised above the mouse. Claw-grip is recommended for people who move primarily with their fingers and with a wrist. Unfortunately, the grip can be tiring and not as precise as the palm-grip. Here, symmetrical mice (not profiled) with higher back are recommended.
This is the last of the three most popular grips. It is also the hardest to describe. It can be said that it is a combination of two previous. The fingers and palm are arranged in the same way as the palm-grip, but at the same time we slide them away from the mouse. In this way, only the fingertips touch the rodent and the small part of the palm. Therefore, in this grip, movements are also performed primarily with the fingers and wrist. Same as claw-grip, it can be tiresome for longer sessions. The advantage is high control precision, though not as large as the palm-grip. Smaller mice are recommended for fingertip-grip.
Of course not all gripes. But these three are the most popular, and all others are minor modifications of the basic types. I suspect that with palm-grip, claw-grip and fingertip-grip uses over 90 percent. people, although I have no confirmation on this.

So how to measure the length of your hand?

The second issue is the size of the hand. Some have larger, others average, and still others are small. This is very important in choosing the right mouse. I would say that this is a key issue. But first you need to know how to measure your hand. We do not do this from the wrist to the end of the longest finger, as many people would be able to spend.
To begin with, we need to place your thumb perpendicular to the other fingers. Then we have to imagine a line running through the center of the palm, which is designated by our thumb. We now measure the distance from the middle finger to this imaginary line. If it is difficult to understand, then the following graphic will perfectly explain everything.
In this way we get the length of your hand. We should go out a dozen centimeters. In my case it is exactly 13.5 cm.

How to adjust the mouse to the size of the palm?

Since we already know what grip we use and know what length we have, we can start looking for specific models:
In case of palm-grip, we should look for a mice with roughly the same length as our hand. Obviously 0.5 centimeters in one way or the other will not make a big difference.
If we use claw-grip , we have to look for mice slightly smaller. The best models will be symmetrical (not profiled) about 1-2 cm shorter than our hand.
At the end we still have fingertip-grip . Here also the best should be symmetrical mice. Profiled will not work well because the hand is slightly offset from the device. It is worth looking for rodent 1 cm shorter than our hand. So is my case. I use fingertip-grip, so for my mouse I chose Dream Machines DM 1 Pro. It is 12.5 cm long, so exactly 1 cm less than my hand.
The above method is quite universal on how to fit the mouse to the size of the palm. Works for most users. Gives some idea of ​​what devices to look for at all. Remember, there is no substitute for grabbing a model in the store and checking if it's comfortable in our hand.
