  • Way Off-Topic Healthy warning for all online workers!

    Some of you might not know about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, it's some kind of a common source of hand numbness and pain. You can see some of CTS surgery pictures, hope you still good after seeing those.

    And it's a big risk for anyone who works daily on a computer that use mouse and computer on bad position. Here are some good position on mouse and keyboard usage for you:







    and more on this post, also some hand exercise while on computer

    Hope this information help us on healthy workspace! And hope I'm not posting this on wrong section

      My nice wireless keyboard seems to be less responsive than it used to be probably due to it being 10 years old.

      I had to get a cheap keyboard and the way it's position just kills my wrists. It's slanted upwards even without the legs.


      I would like to know who would use a mouse in the position illustrated in the last picture.

        Why are the raisers always on the top end of the keyboard rather than the lower end?

          Well, at least i got the mouse bit right hehe

          But i use comfort pad's and arm rests on my keyboard, i guess that would be classed as "Right"?

            I think pad is better than keyboard

              Thankfully I never constantly type or even use a mouse. Nor do I sit for my computer for hours non-stop.

                Let me add that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is not 100% curable. So if you happen to get it, the damage is done and surgery is generally the only way to alleviate the compressed nerve(s).

                Nerve tissue once damaged, is damaged for good. It is one of the only tissues in your body that cannot rejuvenate itself.

                  The medical information here doesn't seem to be 100% accurate to me, please read: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carpal_tunnel_syndrome

                    Yes, because Wikipedia is the best place to go for 100% fool-proof information.

                    Just saying.

                        Been almost 20 years on computers daily. Never had a problem and I type from all angles and use my mouse from all angles too. I guess I'm still not old enough
