A mouse is a computer peripheral that you use extensively every day. The major styles to grip the mouse are either palm grip or claw grip. Whenever you use mouse palm style, you hold the mouse with the surface of your palm and fingers. It’s a comfortable position since the entire hand’s weight is on the mouse. With the claw grip, the mouse is only held by a small portion of the palm, and the fingertips, thus arching the hand more.
