I have read and heard contradicting personal experiences on how good trackballs are to avoid RSI as they put more stress on the hand, wrist and arm than a traditional mouse.

Do using trackballs put more stress on the hand, wrist and arm than a traditional mouse?

I am interested in both thumb trackballs and finger trackballs.

I am currently using a logitech ambidextrous trackball and I am starting to develop pain for clicking with the thumb. The wrist seems to remain stable, but there is still a certain amount of tension when moving the ball in the wrist.

Else at my job, I try to move the mouse by moving my whole arm instead of the wrist to reduce wrist pain. There does not seem to be a perfect solution.
