Wrist injuries due to using a keyboard and/or mouse for extensive period repetitively is not unknown anymore. Millions of people around the world use computers for at least 3 hours a day, during which their hands remain on the keyboard and mouse. There are many ways to prevent wrist injuries resulting from using keyboard and mouse on the desk. However, due to the lack of research in this area, most information we get about it varies from sources to sources.
Some suggest using a wrist pad, some say don’t. Some doctors suggest using a vertical mouse, while others do not even mention that. Such variations in the opinions of physicists and lack of a single suggestion about the recommended way of using keyboard and mouse for prolonged hours only indicate a lack of research in the area.
However, there are some unanimously accepted practices ensuring safety from wrist injuries, sitting diseases and other syndromes that occur due to prolonged use of keyboard and mouse (such as RSI or Repetitive Stress Injury, carpel tunnel syndrome, though much debated). I have shared this below:
For using keyboard
Your wrists should be in a neutral position when typing.
Do not bend your wrists toward your little finger.
Your wrist must not bend toward your thumb.
Don’t bend your wrist in a downward direction for resting or temporary comfort.
For using mouse
Use of mouse for prolonged hours can cause more stress to your wrist than what a keyboard might cause. So, be very careful when using the mouse. People who use a full keyboard with Numpad fall victim to such mouse use related stresses than those who use built-in laptop keyboard or USB laptop size keyboards.
It is because the full-sized keyboard takes more space pushing the mouse further away from body demanding an unnatural position of your arms and wrist while using the mouse. We highly recommend using laptop-size keyboards, or mini keyboard instead of full-sized keyboards.
We also highly recommend using a separate keyboard with your laptop rather than using the laptop keyboard itself, it will not only increase your laptop’s built-in keyboard’s life, it will also save you from wrist injuries.
The mouse should be placed at a position where you can easily access it and it doesn’t require any unnatural position for your hand to reach out to the mouse.
Don’t bend your wrists toward left or right or downward when using the mouse.
Make sure the keyboard tray of your computer desk/table doesn’t have a ridge at its front.
Buy computer tables that are ergonomically designed.
Take a break every 30 minutes. Stand up. Stretch a little. Try folding and unfolding your wrists and fingers and do a little exercise of arms. You may also want to wash your eyes every two hours if you look at your monitor for more than 3 hours a day.
If you follow these instructions, you will reduce any risk of stress caused by repetitive use of keyboard and mouse for prolonged hours.
