Computer work is a major cause of RSI/CARPAL complaints. Incorrect use of a keyboard is a significant risk factor. An ergonomic keyboard is an excellent tool for preventing these complaints. There are many variations of these keyboards, such as mini keyboards and adjustable keyboards. Personal preference plays an important role in choosing an ergonomic keyboard.
What is an ergonomic keyboard?
An ergonomic keyboard is a type of keyboard designed to provide the user with a more comfortable and natural typing position, reducing the risk of fatigue, pain, or injury to the hands, wrists, and arms.
An ergonomic keyboard often has a special shape or layout that allows the user to keep their wrists in a neutral position, reducing pressure on the joints and nerves. It may also have a split design, where the keyboard is divided into two parts. This allows the user to adjust the angle between the two parts to reduce strain on the wrists and arms.
