Mouse Pads - Choosing the Best Pad for Your Computing Needs

By Ilse Hagen

A mouse pad is made out of foam rubber with a fabric or plastic top cover, which may be plain or decorated. Other pads feature more unconventional materials such as silicone rubber, glass, wood, stone, recycled rubber tires, leather, cork, aluminum and stainless steel. Other pads are made especially for gaming and are usually made with high-quality materials. Most pads feature a textured or adhesive bottom to keep it from slipping while in use.

The main purpose of a mouse pad is to provide an even, almost flat surface to make mouse movement more accurate. You can place it on a separate mouse tray, but any flat surface (such as the computer table) will do. There are different kinds of mouse pads, each with different purposes.

Kinds of mouse pads:

1. Textured type - This kind comes with a rough surface and is made of thick and long-lasting materials. This is most suitable for roller-type mice.

2. Shiny type - This pad comes with a smooth, glossy surface and is made for optical mice, which use LED light instead of roller balls for tracking. The shiny surface enhances the mouse’s optical light tracking.

3. Ergonomic type – This type comes with a wrist rest that relieves the user from strain from extensive mouse usage. It is designed to prevent hand strain and repetitive stress injury among heavy users.

Tips when buying mouse pads

1. Choose a pad that uses a non-slip material (such as rubber) for backing.

2. Regarding size, it is better to select a thicker pad so that it would be at equal level to your keyboard.
