For me a normal mouse causes pain after prolonged use. Switching to a
thumb trackball ten years ago has alleviated all problems. I've got
several liberally sprinkled across house and office. Amusingly my
missus first hated them and has now got one at her office as well,
saying she is twice as productive and has no mouse elbow either anymore.
Her Health and Safety officer was very reluctant to let her use it :-)
