To avoid the Disorders
- Use the Laptop Ergonomics mouse on an adjustable position mouse platform.
- Protect your wrist if you look at the anatomy of the wrist it is curved away from any contact surface (you can easily see this by resting your hand/arm on a flat surface - you'll see light under the wrist and can probably even pass a thin pen under this).
The forearm is shaped liked this for the wrist to remain free of surface pressure contact.
- Don't throttle your Laptop Ergonomics mouse (it's already dead)! Hold the mouse gently to move it over a mousing surface.
- Don't skate or flick the Ergonomic Laptop mouse with your wrist. Make controlled Ergonomics Laptop mouse movements using your elbow as the pivot point and keep your wrist straight and neutral.
- Sit back in your chair, relax your arms then lift your Laptop Ergonomics mousing hand up, pivoting at the elbow, until your hand is just above elbow level. YourLaptop Ergonomic mouse should be positioned somewhere around this point.
Don't use a Laptop Ergonomics mouse by stretching to the desk or out to the side of a keyboard. With a flat mouse platform, position this 1-2" above the Laptop Ergonomics keyboard and over the numeric keypad if you are right handed - you can easily move it out of the way if you need to access these keys.
With a downward sloping mouse platform, position this close to the side of the Laptop Ergonomic keyboard so that you can use the Laptop Ergonomics mouse in a neutral wrist position.
- For many people there are exposed blood vessels near the skin at the wrist, which is where the pulse is often taken. Any pressure in this region will disrupt circulation into the hand and this will cause Laptop Ergonomic problems.
- Don't use a wrist rest researches has shown that using a wrist rest doubles the pressure inside the carpal tunnel, because the floor of the tunnel is a more flexible ligament that transmits external pressure changes directly into the carpal tunnel (the roof of the tunnel is bone so the pressure doesn't get transmitted on through the hand). Indeed, one test for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), know as Tinel's sign, simply involves tapping on the palmar surface of the wrist, which is enough to cause tingling and numbness in someone developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS).
