Mice & Keyboards
Our Guide to Mice and Keyboards
With both mice and keyboards we always try to encourage a neutral arm and wrist posture. Many standard mice force the user to rotate the forearm over to place the hand flat to the table. This strains several of the muscles and tendons in the forearm, and rotates the Ulnar and Radial bones. To avoid this, we suggest a vertical style mouse - such as the Evoluent Vertical Mouse - that places the forearm into a neutral, handshake position and keeps the muscles and tendons relaxed.
It is also important to keep the mouse nice and close to your body, so that you aren't stretching your arm out too far, placing strain on the shoulder and neck muscles. A compact keyboard, or mini keyboard, is an ideal solution, and whilst you lose the number pad section on the right hand side of a standard keyboard, you can always opt for a separate number pad if you need it!
We then have a selection of ergonomic split keyboards designed to reduce wrist extension and deviation. The ability to split a keyboard in two planes gives the user a very neutral wrist posture, and whilst this may cause some users to be a bit slow for a while, keyboards such as the GoldTouch can be slowly moved apart to allow the user to get used to this over time.
