Shownotes

Most of us will be familiar with the mouse pads that are fitted with foam or gel rests at the base and with the long foam or gel rests that are positioned along the bottom of the keyboard. These are marketed as ergonomic products designed to ensure appropriate hand position to reduce aches and strains when using the mouse / keyboard. But are they a help or are they a hindrance!?

In this episode, I discuss the common errors I come across with the use of wrist rests and how to avoid these pitfalls.
