Wrist Health For The Common Computer User

I'll admit it. On any given day, I work on the computer anywhere from five to ten hours. Usually this number is closer to ten easily. Being a graphic designer comes with a price, which is the health of my wrists. Anyone who works on a computer as much as me knows the feeling of sore wrists and having that worry in the back of your mind that you will one day develop carpal tunnel. It is a very unfortunate truth, but luckily there is something out there that can help! Don't you just love the word "hope."

The IMAK Wrist Cushion for your keyboard and mouse is filled with massaging ergoBeads, making for the most comfortable ergonomic wrist support available. The unique design conforms to your keyboard, while completely supporting your wrist and forearm in an ergonomically correct position, reducing stress in your hands, wrists and arms. They massage your wrist as you type, providing all day typing comfort and promoting healthy hands and wrists. How could you go wrong with these?!

Exactly, you can't! That is precisely why I took a trip to the local Staples and bought myself keyboard and mouse wrist pads. This is probably one of the smartest buys I have made in a long time, as far as computers go. It may sound cheesy, but it really works! I have owned these products for not even a full day and I already feel healthier and better about my long hours working on the computer.

Just think about this. Approximately 10% of American adults will suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome. If you use a computer daily or perform any repetitive task the odds are good that you could be one of them. I myself am not keen to develop a disease that could be easily prevented or at least slowed by a simple purchse such as this.
