Solutions to Tilted Mousepad on Reclining Desks?

Think this:

Both solve the issue of being able to recline without messing up the angle the eyes view the screens at. However, they all mess up the angle of the mousing surface - so that the mouse would slide off. What is the best solution? Obviously, one could try a different kind of mouse - but I would prefer not sacrificing the accuracy of a good laser mouse. Furthermore, the mouse should be close to the keyboard and at a similar angle so that the hands don't waste much time moving between them

Thanks!

Make the chair recline by changing the angle of your seat not your back support.

You may have to invent a mouse and pad utilizing magnets to hold the mouse in place.

My coworker used to use something like this. His answer was to use a trackpad/trackball, but generally he tried to not use the mouse at all. I'm not sure if not using the mouse was a cause or symptom of this setup. Sometimes he also put his laptop in his lap with the attached trackpad and only connected to the monitor.

Any high end chair has synchro-tilt or independent tilt. Much cheaper than those. I think those would make me barf. You have no straight line of sight. I am almost positive that is good for your body, at the expense of your brain. I only recline like 6 degrees anyways, Nothing.  tilt lock is on but I am so heavy and tall.... Plus in a large office unless they supplied those I doubt you could just bring that in.

What chair would you recommend? Not sure what defines synchro-tilt or independent tilt... What do you mean no straight line of sight - regardless of seat tilt your eyes are looking straight at the screen, right?

Oh Envelop is horrible, you mean like that? Just get rid of it. Leaning back full time is very bad. Should sit upright. I think for an Ergo company that thing was a mistake. guess why they just discontinued it. I do not know another table that slanted?
