Ergonomic left-handed mouse in 45° design for relief of the wrist

Ergonomics very easy – Thanks to the CHERRY MW 4500 LEFT

Symmetrical mice can be used by right and left handed people. However, left-handers have to rethink their use, as the mouse buttons are designed for right-handers. Neither the position of the thumb buttons nor the general ergonomics are adapted to the needs of left-handers. This affects the workflow and concentration.

The CHERRY MW 4500 LEFT offers you all the advantages that an ergonomic wireless mouse for left-handers needs. The vertical 45 ° design supports your natural hand position and can thus prevent the occurrence of health problems such as a mouse arm or wrist pain. The thumb buttons can also be assigned individually for the left-handed mouse. We recommend our free CHERRY KEYS software for this purpose.

Ergonomic work also means reliability. The "dots per inch" of the optical wireless mouse for left-handers can be set in 3 levels up to 1200 dpi. This guarantees a high level of precision in the entries and minimizes errors. Coupled with a long radio range of up to 10 meters, you don't have to worry about a weak or broken connection. The mouse can be easily connected to any Windows or Mac PC without a cable using the nano receiver.

Do you prefer to left click on the left or right button? We know that not all left-handers will agree on this. Therefore, this assignment can be easily switched using a key combination.

The CHERRY MW 4500 LEFT is battery operated. The matching batteries AAA 1.5 V are of course included in the scope of delivery. An integrated status LED shows you the battery status of the mouse at a glance.

    Product details


    It feels different from any other computer mouse. But only briefly. Because when you use it, you quickly notice that a vertical mouse is different, but above all comfortable, somehow more relaxed. The angle is a bit steeper than with a normal mouse, which means your wrist is at a 45 degree angle.

    More ergonomical, less fatigue.

    The angled shape of the mouse much better corresponds to the natural, relaxed position of the wrist.

    It feels strange at first, but it’s actually a more natural hand posture and thus reduces the risk of wrist problems – and it doesn’t matter if you’re right-handed or left-handed, because the CHERRY MW 4500 is also available as the CHERRY MW 4500 LEFT. It’s the same for prolonged working in the office as it is when you spend several hours on your computer at home. And thanks to the latest wireless technology, you don't have any annoying tangled cables.

    Right-handed? Left-handed? We’ve got the ideal solution for both.

    The CHERRY MW 4500 and CHERRY MW 4500 LEFT are totally relaxing to work with. There’s less strain on your tendons – no matter whether you’re right-handed or left-handed. Two additional thumb buttons let you move back and forth in your web browser, and with the aid of the CHERRY KEYS software you can individually assign copy and paste functions. It will change the way you work.

    I can do that left-handed.

    Left-handed people are a minority. In the UK & the US, the figure is believed to be only about 12-13% of the population. . This means they are often forgotten about when products are developed. And this despite the fact that there have been so many prominent left-handers – Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, for example. The MW 4500 LEFT shows CHERRY’s commitment to equality, offering left-handed people a high-quality brand mouse. And one feature is particularly special. It doesn’t prescribe to left-handers that their left click must be on the left as it is for everyone else, or must be on the right because everything else is reversed. You can simply reconfigure it yourself.

    Questions on the product:

    How can I use the CHERRY MW 4500 as a left-hander? ?

    The special ergonomic shape of the MW 4500 only allows it to be used with your right hand. For left-handed users, we recommend the CHERR MW 4500 LEFT.

    How can I prevent mouse arm or mouse shoulder?

    The most important rule of thumb is that you feel comfortable while working and your body remains in a comfortable position. People usually find an angled, ergonomic mouse more comfortable after getting used to it as the forearm does not need to be twisted as much.

    How do the thumb buttons work and what can I use them for?

    The thumb buttons are assigned by default to the “Browser forward” and “Browser back” functions. This allows you to comfortably navigate to the last page you visited in your browser and then forward again. However, with the free CHERRY KEYS software, you can reprogram these buttons according to your own preferences. For example, a popular combination for the thumb buttons is CTRL-C and CTRL-V for copy & paste. To download the app, visit CHERRY KEYS.

    Do I need a driver for the CHERRY MW 4500 mouse and do I have to update it?

    MW 4500 mice are Plug & Play. A separate driver or software is not required.

    How do I clean or disinfect the CHERRY MW 4500 mouse?

    Do not use solvents such as benzene, alcohol, scouring agents or abrasive scourers. Do not allow liquid to get inside the mouse.
