Daily Telegraph Overworked Fingers Get a Rest

Recently, I started to worry about a niggling pain in my wrists and lower forearm. On the same day that I linked this with using a computer mouse, help in the form of a "MouseBean" Hand Rest arrived in the post.

There are two soft pads on a bean-shaped support which has an attachment to stick it to the mouse. The hand rests on the pads and keeps the wrist straight. This helps to reduce pressure on tendons and on the median nerve as it passes through the carpal tunnel.

Overuse of the fingers with a bent wrist can lead to inflammation of the protective tendon sheath and the risk of repetitive strain injury. Another potential risk is carpal tunnel syndrome, which triggers painful tingling in three of four fingers – usually at night.

This nifty gadget worked first time for me and I became an instant fan; it moves easily about the mousemat and I am glad my niggling pain did not have time to get worse.

AOL's Practical PC
"I've found fixed wrist rests on mouse pads to be particularly uncomfortable, but the 'bean is very comfortable in use. I'm no expert on RSI and the peculiarites of the human anatomy, but I do know what feels "nice" - and the 'bean does make my mouse usage much more comfortable. The thing is, at this price, it's not going to break the bank to find out. ...Like the wheel on the back of my mouse, I reckon I'll miss it when I use someone else's PC that isn't equipped with one."
Pros: Very comfortable to use
Cons: None

Computer Trade Shopper
"Do yourself a favour this Christmas - get yourself a gizmo and then give your wrists a rest with a MouseBean® Hand Rest!"

Practical Internet
"If you don't want to end up doing yourself a mischief by rupturing your wrists using your mouse, splash out on one of these ultra-comfortable rests."

The Architects' Journal
"Rest your Wrist on a Bean."
"The average CAD user apparently clicks their mouse 17,000 times a day, making architects prime candidates for repetitive strain injury (RSI)... At around £6.99, the MouseBean® Hand Rest should be worth a try, particularly since its jellybean range of colours makes it an ornament to the desktop."

:
"Before I started using the MouseBean Hand Rest I was coming home from work with sore hands/wrists and a weakened forearm. The day I started using this device I started to notice the change; now the pain has gone in my mousing hand and work is no longer painful. Every mouse should be equipped with one of these amazing pieces of equipment."

Tips for Safer Working

Take regular breaks. Short breaks, even for a few seconds, can help to reduce the risk of some types of cumulative trauma. If you work under pressure and find it hard to remember to take a break, then download and install a simple Rest Break Timer (see our links page). You'll soon grow to enjoy a quick stretch every so often and the minor interruption is a very small price to pay for feeling more relaxed.

Sit Properly. Get yourself a good chair and make sure it is properly adjusted to suit your body height and desk height. Your elbows should be about level with the desk and you should have plenty of leg room to avoid static postures.
