Hi Ryan,

I have a Kensington Orbit, which looks much like the Logitech marble
mouse (which, I think, is what I have at home). I love it!

My right (dominant) index finger got so sore a few years ago that I
could hardly stand clicking anymore. I switched to the trackball, and
used it with my left hand. I switched the mouse setting to
left-handed, so I clicked with my thumb. It took a couple of days to
get proficient with my left hand, but now I can mouse as effectively
with either hand.

Recently, my left elbow starting giving me fits, so I switched the
trackball to my right hand. I am planning, from now on, to vary what
finger I click with by changing what type of mouse I use every so
often (once a month, maybe). I think changing which hand I use will be
helpful, too.

Hope this helps,
Lisa B.
