MouseMitt International was founded in 1991 by Tana Lee Tolson and Alfred C. Brinnand. Our purpose was to share with others an effective solution for wrist pain—a support glove you could actually wear while you work. MouseMitt earned the MIT Inventor of the Week Award for its ingenious and comfortable design.

The need to concentrate on our work rather than our wrists, spawned our little company. Armed with an old Singer sewing machine and an idea, we developed the MouseMitt, a comfortable and attractive fingerless glove with a built-in wrist support. In consultation with doctors and manual therapists, we perfected its design and successfully filed for a patent—U.S. Patent No. 5,404,591. Loving the "Made in America" notion, we use only local seamstresses to cut and sew our product. 


Over twenty years later, MouseMitts are still manufactured in Santa Cruz County, California, USA.

Thank you for your interest in MouseMitt, and please, drop us a line.

We always enjoy hearing from our customers!

MouseMitts offer relief from relief from the wrist pain associated with repetive tasks

"Have now used Keyboarders for about 5-6 weeks and find I rely more and more on them. At first I found I was wearing the Mitts at night as they stopped the tingling and numbing sensation in my hands when I awoke. Now my hands are quite normal in the mornings, so I make sure I don't go to bed without the Mitts."
