Out of the Blue

A couple of responses to my post last night have me planning on trying to easy my mouse hand pain with some sort of wrist rest. I experimented with items like this in times past, but didn't have any strain to ease, so didn't see the use... I probably won't be able to find where any of those old ones might be. It was also encouraging to see there are others out there using the right mouse button as their forward keys... maybe we can start a support group.

50. wrist pain Aug 11, 2005, 17:06 4D-Boxing
About the pain when using a mouse...My solution was simply making sure my chair was at the correct height so my arm is at a 90 degree angle. So my arm is resting on the arm rest and the wrist on the mouse table just under the mouse pad. That did the trick for me but it might not work for everyone.

That stopped my wrist pain not sure about hand pain. For hand pain the only thing I can think about, is getting a mouse that is the correct size for your hand. At least that's what I saw on TV from a so called expert on ergonomic computing.
