About Xavyr

Have you ever wished you could use your Apple Magic Mouse (or any other conventional computer mouse, for that matter) in a more comfortable, ergonomic way?

Well, you’re in luck!

Xavyr lets you use your conventional computer mouse in a more ergonomic position, giving you a more comfortable “mousing” experience and reducing potential strain on your wrist.

History

It all started way back in 2010 with a twinge in my right wrist… At first I thought I’d slept on it funny, or perhaps it was the universe’s way of telling me to cut back on martial arts as a middle aged dude. 

But no… It was my standard “work from home” setup with a conventional computer keyboard and mouse.

As I looked for ergonomic options, I stumbled on Microsoft’s ergonomic keyboard.

Let me tell you… It made all the difference in terms of comfort. Using the ergonomic keyboard was like going from a metal folding chair to a BarcaloungerMy wrists were WAYYY happier.

Then I looked at my mouse, then back at my new keyboard, then back a my mouse… And something seemed to be “off”… 

I tried using a vertical mouse, but:
 
  1. It just didn’t feel right, and
  2. I didn’t want to give up the Magic Mouse’s touch pad surface and seamless functionality with my Mac.

Am I an ergonomics expert…? Far from it…! But armed with some determination, many nights and weekends, and a rudimentary understanding of basic angles (thanks PCD geometry!) I built various angled mouse pad prototypes that mimicked the ~14 degree angle of the Microsoft ergonomic keyboard. 

The result is the Xavyr—an ergonomic mouse pad that mimics the ergonomic slant of Microsoft’s ergonomic keyboard with sophisticated design and comfort.

The Xavyr is for those who seek ergonomic comfort in their digital pursuits without compromising on the aesthetic value of their workspace. 

After using prototypes for years, I started manufacturing Xavyr in small batches. Each Xavyr is built by hand in Ridgefield, Connecticut, U.S.A. 

Xavyr is designed to be a bridge between practical design, physical health and aesthetic appeal.

I use it every day… I hope it brings the same relief and joy to you as it does for me.
