Some people blame typing for carpal tunnel syndrome(CTS), the painful wrist problem caused by a compressed nerve. But it has been known that the real culprit is the computer mouse. In a study, as reported in the journal of the American Medical Association, pounding a keyboard for 20 or more hours a week did not raise CTS risk in 7,000 workers, but people who dragged and clicked a mouse more than 20 hours a week were 2.6 times more likely to experience tingling numbness in the hand that steered the mouse.
That said, using a mouse that’s large enough to support the full natural curve of your hand while fitting onto your palm may help. So there you go, start hunting for that large enough mouse. But how large is large? Have you seen a real large mouse yet? I haven’t myself. The mouse I’m using is not even large enough to follow the natural curves of my hand. Oh. well maybe let’s start looking for one. Good luck!
