I recently wrote this article, Office Ergonomics 101 – Staying Healthy in the Office, which obviously dealt with your ergonomic health in your work or home office. I broke it down into various areas which could affect an office worker’s ergonomic health.
One section was the keyboard which historically has been associated with the wrist, forearm, and elbow issues due to the repetition of constantly pressing the keys. A mouse and keyboard wrist rest can help offset those repetitive keystrokes.
One ailment called Carpal Tunnel Syndrome has led to the loss of multiple man hours for many workers historically. Eliminating, or at least lessening, the effects of repetitive keyboard typing is the role of workplace ergonomics. A mouse wrist rest support could clearly help your ergonomic health.
Well, there are certainly office accessories that will help alleviate the effects of repetitive typing on your wrists and forearms. The image on the left is a representation of the proper arm angle when typing on a keyboard.
The combo accessory shown above is called a Gimars Mouse and Keyboard Wrist Rest. One of the intriguing aspects of these wrist rests is that they are a #1 Best Seller in Wrist Rests on Amazon as you can see below.
I take the reviews on Amazon very seriously and I think most people who buy on Amazon feel the same way.
Health Benefits of a Keyboard Wrist Rest and Mouse Support
