The Myth About Ergonomic Wrist Rests Preventing Wrist Pain During Computer Use, and Why They Are Useless.  Why You Need An Ergonomic Computer Wrist  Support Instead.

Are you getting hand and wrist pain from spending too many hours on your computer?  Did someone suggest that you  get some ergonomic wrist rests to help?  Well, don’t bother. Opinions vary regarding ergonomic wrist rests, but   in my humble opinion, (with a Masters’ degree in Occupational Therapy, and nearly 20 years of experience), ergonomic wrist rests do virtually nothing at all, except make their companies money.  An ergonomic computer wrist support, however, is much more useful, and necessary if you have an injured wrist.

What Are Ergonomic Wrist Rests

Let's define our terms.  People throw around terminology a bit too freely.  An ergonomic wrist rest is usually some type of padding placed in front of the computer keyboard or mouse in an attempt to help keep the wrist straight or in the “neutral” position.  An ergonomic computer wrist support or ergonomic wrist support, is usually a soft or firm brace worn on the wrist itself.  Ergonomic wrist rests come in many different shapes and sizes.  Ergonomic computer wrist supports may have different styles, but they all support the wrist in some manner.

The problem with ergonomic wrist rests is simple - they don‘t do anything for you if your hand and wrist is at a different level than the keyboard or mouse.  If your hands and wrists are at the keyboard level, you may not need any special equipment anyway.  The key to computer ergonomics is positioning, good posture, and a few common sense tips.  By keeping your keyboard and mouse at the same level as your wrists and hands, you will be significantly reducing your risk of developing an RSI (repetitive strain injury).  If you want a little extra padding in front of the keyboard, you can fold up a hand towel, an old rag, a cloth, or anything else that's soft.

Again, proper positioning is the real solution.  However, if you already have some hand and wrist problems, you may need an ergonomic computer wrist support to immobilize your wrist and hand, allowing them to rest and heal.  Ergonomic wrist rests can’t limit wrist range of motion, nor can ergonomic wrist rests provide comfort and stability to a sore or painful wrist. An ergonomic wrist rest can’t relieve wrist pain, an ergonomic wrist rest can’t promote healing, and an ergonomic wrist rest can’t protect an injured or weak wrist.

An ergonomic computer wrist support can do the entire aforementioned plus more. If you have any wrist, hand, or thumb injuries, or if you have a repetitive strain injury such as carpal tunnel, wrist tendonitis, etc., you will need a wrist or a thumb support to be worn on the wrist and/or thumb.

People often ask what makes The Helpful Hand™ so different from other ergonomic computer wrist supports. First, it’s made from top-quality materials you won’t find in most ergonomic computer wrist supports. The real news, however, is its patented support system, a feature that:

  • pulls your thumb and first two fingers together
  • includes a sturdy, adjustable strap that acts almost like an extra finger

As a result, The Helpful Hand™ enables you to grasp and hold dozens of everyday objects - utensils, tools, combs, toothbrushes, sports equipment, and more - with far less effort. That means far less pain when you use them, and better healing for the inflamed tissue. It’s not just a breakthrough in providing pain relief, it's a true aid to daily living

When you use the computer, simply take off the support strap system, and put it back on when you want to do other things.

Using an Ergonomic Computer Wrist Support if you have painful wrists and hands may be important to help your hands and wrists rest and heal.  If you neglect early symptoms of repetitive strain injuries, they can become severe, require surgery, and even cause permanent pain and disability.  You may need Occupational Therapy and doctor visits which can end up costing you not only valuable time, but also hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars even with the aid of insurance. One doctor or therapy visit can cost you hundreds of dollars, especially if you don’t have quality insurance. You simply can’t find a wrist support or brace of our quality at your local pharmacy, or even at most medical supply stores. Isn’t $26 - $36 worth the investment in your own health?  Especially if the pain becomes severe and chronic, most people would consider it quite a bargain.
