Is Wrist Rest Mouse Pad Useful?
Experts say, with long-term use of a keyboard and mouse, the wrist must withstand intensive, repeated, and excessive activity, local edema will cause the carpal median nerve compression, which may lead to a “mouse hand”. According to the survey, the “mouse hand” is more common in women, and the incidence is 3 times as high as that of men. The main symptoms are pain or numbness of the index finger or middle finger joint, weakness of the thumb muscles, and aggravation of nocturnal pain, allowing it to develop and even causing impaired hand function and strength. Experts say, the “mouse hand” only local symptoms, if the mouse position is not reasonable, such as too high, too low, or too far, even leads to more serious “cervicobrachial syndrome”.
For today’s market, such as plastic, cotton, and other materials for mouse and wrist cushion products, Professor Xu believes that the permeability of plastic gasket is not good, especially in summer, and it is easy to sweat when the wrist is used for a long time. May as well choose cotton cloth, not only suck sweat, and feel better. In addition, many carpal mats are only high in the wrists, which not only does not relieve the pressure but will increase the pressure on the wrist. In fact, it is better to choose a slightly shorter wrist pad that can not be suspended in the arm. The best area is not too small. It is better to move flexibly on the wrist.
Do not use the wrist when you move the mouse, and as far as possible by the arm, can minimize wrist force. Every 1 hour do some fist, pinch fingers, and other movements, such as little force to back direction wrench that can relieve symptoms.
