    It looks horrible (designed for teenage gamers) and will probably be expensive but it's the most customisable mouse I've heard of - look for Cyborg R.A.T 7 Gaming Mouse

    Other gaming mice will be adjustable as well if not to the same extent.

    look at vertical mice, there is no twisting of the wrist to use these.

    I'll tell them about the first two, but I'm not about to tell the Asst Head to do press-ups :-)

    I've been using the Logitech Marble Mouse for years and it stopped my achey wrist. I'm right handed but I use it with the left; this is what the doctor told me to do. Your dominant hand gets overworked and if you use the non-dominant hand, it gives the other one a rest. It feels a bit odd at first, but you soon get used to it. Also, use keyboard shortcuts; it's much quicker and better for the wrist.

    Trackball is the way to go - I try to use my Wacom tablet as much as possible to.
